Google Unveils Upcoming Generative AI Features for Workspace Apps
Google has announced upcoming generative AI features for its Workspace apps, including new ways to generate and brainstorm text in Google Docs, the ability to generate full emails in Gmail, and AI imagery, audio, and video in Slides.

New Rules for smartphones in India
India is planning to introduce new security rules that will require smartphone manufacturers to allow the removal of pre-installed apps and mandate the screening of major operating system updates, according to a government document.
The move is aimed at addressing concerns about spying and abuse of user data. However, the new rules could lead to extended launch timelines in India’s smartphone market and cause losses for companies such as Samsung, Xiaomi, Vivo, and Apple, which rely on pre-installed apps. The IT ministry is currently considering the proposed rules.
