Google Dashboard to help control of data

New Google Dashboard

When redesigning Dashboard, Google's number one goal was to improve mobile usability.

The other two key improvements had to do with understanding which Google products collect what data, and downloading that data as well. In addition, the company is integrating some of its privacy controls, including My Account and My Activity, into the Dashboard interface.

This update is available for all users of Google's services.

Data is downloaded through a feature called Takeout, which originally launched in 2011.

"Today, we're announcing a refresh of the Google Dashboard, one of the first places people visit to see the products they use and the data associated with them". Data can already be exported to OneDrive and Dropbox (Box support is coming in the future), but the updates aim to make the process even easier.

The company is building a new VR headset to follow the Daydream View and Cardboard, which was so popular that Google has shipped over 10 million of its cheap, do-it-yourself headsets since their debut in 2014.

You wouldn't be able to completely opt-out of sharing location information while using Google Maps, for example.

The update won't be rolling out until next week, but from the images, it looks like Google is using graphics to better itemize all the services you use, and make it clear where you spend the most time and what data is there. Its core unit, Google, which includes its money-printing search and advertising businesses, mobile operating system Android, and video network YouTube, remains the company's crown jewel.
