Google Maps, incognito navigation also on iOS

Already available for Android devices for about a month, the mode of browsing in incognito reaches Google Maps also on iOS. On the other hand, it's been a while since the research giant first announced the feature in May, and iPhone and iPad owners have been waiting for it for quite a while.

The mode is very similar to that of Chrome browsers: once activated, users will be able to search for a location on the app or head somewhere and Google will not save this information. To activate the incognito navigation, just tap on your profile image and select "Activate incognito mode". It is worth stressing, however, that some features will be disabled by activating the mode in question: for example, the places visited will not be kept in the Location History, as well as the user's account searches will not be saved (and the information will not be used for customize the experience). read more

Google Stadia, games that can soon be purchased online

Google Stadia is a constantly updated platform. On the other hand, when it was launched last November 19th, it did not have all the features promised by the developers in the months before the debut (partially disappointing the expectations of the public and critics).
