The giant of internet technology space, Mountain View headquartered Google announced changes in its “My Devices”, making it far easier for users to track all connected devices. If you are a G Suite user, now you will have the option to track desktop devices also along with mobile devices.
Making the announcement, the Alphabet subsidiary wrote in G Suites Update blog that the change “includes detailed device information, an option to log out of the device, and an option to wipe the device.”
In line with the changes Google has been making in the recent past, the My Devices layout also now is far closer to the Material Design. The changes effective from November 18 make My Devices more cohesive and cleaner.
The My Device page of G Suite is similar to the “Find My Device” of the Android that helps you track and locate all Google connected devices and control the device information. If required, you can erase and lock the device.
Retaining all the functionalities of the earlier layout, Google now makes it more users’ friendly for G Suite users by giving them access and control to all desktop devices linked to the account. Technically, you will be in a position to monitor and control devices like desktop, laptops, and Chromebooks on My Devices admin panel and take necessary action if and when required.
The blog update said, “A new URL, as the page is now found at mydevices.google.com, rather than google.com/apps/mydevices. Soon, we’ll start to redirect users from the old site to the new site.”
- Rapid Release Domains: Full rollout began on November 18 and the feature visibility might take 1 to 3 days.
- Scheduled Release Domains: It also began on November 18 and full rollout might take 1 to 3 days.
These feature updates will be ON by default in your G Suite account.
In another major announcement, Google on Tuesday launched the much anticipated Google Stadia. With Stadia Pro subscription at $9.99 per month you will get a cloud-based game streaming service on Chrome browser which will have 22 games including “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” and “NBA 2K20”.
