Google also made it easier to port your Google data to other services easily which was also highlighted in Google I/O 2018. To support that aim, Google recently initiated the Data Transfer Project on GitHub, providing early-stage open source code that will, in time, be of use to any developer wanting to offer seamless transfer of data from one service directly into an alternative (or vice versa). Additionally, Google has updated their Privacy Policy in plain English to make it more understandable to the user that information tech giant collect and why it collect. The updated policy is already available to read and Google will be emailing all of the users about it individually.
