Google Donating $800 Million To Help With The Coronavirus Crisis – CBS San Francisco

GOOG GOOGL

MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF / CNN) — Google is committing to donate more than $800 million to support businesses, organizations and healthcare workers as part of its coronavirus response — most of it in the form of free advertising. The tech company headquartered in Mountain View said it will give the World Health Organization and global government agencies a total of $250 million in ad grants — up from the $25 million it announced a few weeks ago — to share information on how to battle the spread of the virus, CEO Sundar Pichai said in a blog post on Friday. Another $340 million in Google ad credits will be available to small and medium–sized businesses whose accounts have been active over the past year, Pichai said, with an additional $20 million earmarked for announcements on relief funds and support for small businesses. Apple on Friday released a website and an iOS app that allows users to screen themselves for coronavirus symptoms, days after announcing that it would donate more than 10 million respirator masks across the US and Europe.

How to turn off (or simply pause) news headlines on your Amazon Echo Show or Google Nest Hub display

AMZN GOOG +2 more AMZN GOOG TWTR GOOGL

Mar 27, 2020 9:42 AM PT. While it’s important to stay informed during the rapidly developing coronavirus crisis, it’s certainly possible to become too informed. By default, Echo Show and Google Nest displays will occasionally flash trending news headlines, which nowadays means lots of grim bulletins about the rapid spread of COVID-19 around the globe. The Echo Show offers a fairly granular level of control over what appears on the home screen, handy for toggling specific elements on and off at will, meaning (for example) that you can lose the headlines without sacrificing such innocuous updates such as trending recipes, sports scores, or upcoming calendar events. Another option: If you’d rather not disable news and trending topics headlines completely, you can suspend them during certain hours using Do Not Disturb. When Do Not Disturb is turned on (tap on your Echo Show in the Alexa app, then tap Do Not Disturb to set a schedule), your Echo Show will still sound alarms and timers and Alexa will respond to questions, but no headlines or any other content (save the clock) will appear on the home screen.

Google’s YouTube, Classroom Software Hit by Partial Outages

GOOG GOOGL

(Bloomberg) -- Major Google services including YouTube, video-calling and Gmail were hit by partial outages Thursday while the internet giant’s infrastructure is experiencing record usage during the coronavirus pandemic. Urs Holzle, who overseas Google’s data centers, said the problem came from a router failure in Atlanta and wasn’t virus-related. “This wasn’t related to traffic levels or any kind of overload, our network is not stressed by Covid-19,” Holzle said on Twitter. Alphabet Inc.’s Google has largely been able to keep its services running as millions of people have been forced to stay at home to help slow the spread of the virus.

GOOG FB +1 more GOOG FB GOOGL

Facebook(NASDAQ: FB) and Alphabet's (NASDAQ: GOOG)(NASDAQ: GOOGL) Google have experienced an uptick in usage as people turn to social media for information, entertainment, and solace amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

With travel coming to a halt, stores across the globe shuttered to foot traffic, and layoffs mounting, advertisers are reining in their ad spending. How bad the loss will be depends on the length of the pandemic. But if China is any indication, it's going to be many billions of dollars. Print advertising is expected to take the biggest hit, but digital ad spending isn't immune. Concerns about the impact coronavirus will have on ad spending is already reflected in the share prices of Facebook and Google, which have been plummeting along with the rest of the market all month.
