Oracle Australia, a branch of Oracle Corporation, recently met with members of the ACCC and claimed that Google harvests an average of a gigabyte of data a month from individual Android users.

I find this UI to be rather intuitive, and while I agree that the motion can seem to be a bit clunky, I think Google can smoothen it up before Android P's official launch later this year.

The Google Assistant connects with all in-car functions, allowing the driver to control things such as air conditioning, apps, and even send messages by using voice commands, while the integration of Google Maps gives real-time map and traffic data. Now, Google is being investigated for allegedly tracking Android phone users. Android is Google's mobile operating system. With the Cambridge Analytica scandal, users trust issues with the tech giants like Google and Facebook are also tottered. It has even emphasized that the search engine giant has mapped IP addresses, mobile towers, and WIFI connection points, enabling Google to identify where a device is either connecting or attempting to connect without making use of the smartphone's site service.

"We are exploring how much consumers know about the use of location data and are working closely with the Privacy Commissioner", the ACCC said in a statement. This to help it earn more advertising dollars.

The social media giant said improved technology using artificial intelligence had helped it to act on 3.4 million posts containing graphic violence, almost three times more than it had in the last quarter of 2017.

AUSTRALIANS ARE reportedly "paying for the privilege" of having their data harvested by Google.

"With over 2 million apps in Google's Play Store, it is inevitable that some malicious apps will creep through". The company has also claimed in the past that Google's Android data exfiltration activities go as far as recording the cell mast users' smartphones are connected to.
