The new policies will take effect on March 1. Due to the changes, Google users can get a simpler, more intuitive experience across all the Google services.
More specifically, Google searches may take into consideration context of searches according to the user's previous information and activities. A video in the post gives an example - the search engine can understand a car buff would want Jaguar the car rather than the big cat of the same name.
Furthermore, when a user is typing in Google Docs or Gmail, the auto-correct feature can also suggest spellings based on prior content he/she has created.
It may even be able to tell you when you'll be late for a meeting based on your location, your calendar and local weather conditions, the voice-over said. All of which means we're not just keeping your private stuff private. We're making it more useful to you in your daily life too.
Meanwhile, the terms of service are also being rewritten and consolidated.
Today we can also do things like make it easy for you to read a memo from Google Docs right in your Gmail, or add someone from your Gmail contacts to a meeting in Google Calendar, the statement read.
However, Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), is worried whether those changes will lead to further erosions of user privacy.
