Google Update: More Transparency and Control over Location

Posted By Camille Canon On October 19, 2010 @ 1:08 am In News | 4 Comments

Mack Lu, Associate Product Manager at Google, published a blog post yesterday announcing changes to Google’s location-related results that will enable users to always see their location setting and make changes to it.

Google users have been able to change their location, but the process was ‘clunky.’ With the new change, the location setting will always appear on the left side of the search results page, allowing users to quickly change their location by adding a new zip code, city or country.  The interface is being rolled out and will soon be available in more than 40 languages.
