Let’s jam—Jamboard is now available

Good ideas become great ones when you work together with your teammates. But as teams become increasingly distributed, you need tools that spur visual creativity and collaboration—a way to sketch out ideas, rev on them with colleagues no matter where they may be in the world and make them real. That’s where Jamboard, our cloud-based, collaborative whiteboard, can help. Starting today, Jamboard is available for purchase in the United States.

Breaking down creative barriers

We tested Jamboard with enterprise early adopters like Dow Jones, Whirlpool and Pinterest, who shared how Jamboard helped their businesses collaborate more efficiently and bring the power of the cloud into team brainstorms. 

Shaown Nandi, chief information officer at Dow Jones, saw his teams became more hands-on in creative sessions thanks to Jamboard. “Jamboard breaks down barriers to interactive, visual collaboration across teams everywhere,” said Nandi. “It’s the perfect anchor for a meeting and encourages impromptu, productive sessions. We can easily add any content to the Jamboard to capture great ideas from everyone. We immediately saw the benefits.”

We received great suggestions from customers on how to make Jamboard even better, such as adding a greater range of secure Wi-Fi network configurations so it’s easier to jam in different business settings. Customers also confirmed how important high speed touch is when using a digital whiteboard, and we’re using the Nvidia Jetson TX1 embedded computer to make sure Jamboard’s 4K touchscreen delivers a responsive experience. Starting today, you can purchase a Jamboard in three colors: cobalt blue, carmine red and graphite grey.

Order Jamboard today 

You can purchase Jamboard for $4,999 USD, which includes two styluses, an eraser and a wall mount. We’re also running a promotion—if you order on or before September 30, 2017, you’ll receive $300 off of the annual management and support fee for the first year, as well as a discount on the optional rolling stand.

Keep in mind that a G Suite plan is required to use Jamboard so that you can access files from Drive, use them in your brainstorms and come back to your work later. Plus, the Jamboard mobile companion apps can be used remotely so you can work on the go. Also, we’re teaming up with BenQ to handle fulfillment, delivery and support. Check out pricing details below.

Jamboard is available to G Suite customers in the U.S. to start, and will be available for purchase in the U.K. and Canada this summer, with more countries becoming available over time. Contact your Google Cloud sales rep or visit to learn more about how you can start jamming with colleagues today.

If you’re a current G Suite admin, check out this post for more information.

Chrome browser in enterprise: new admin bundle and Citrix support

Thanks to its speed, security and simplicity, Chrome has become the most popular browser for using the web. But it’s not just for personal use. With more than 200 browser management policies, industry-leading security and regularly scheduled updates, Chrome is also built for enterprises.

Adoption of Chrome browser in enterprise has doubled in the last two years and we’re committed to making it even easier for IT admins to deploy and manage Chrome within their organization. Say hello to the new Chrome enterprise bundle.  

The new bundle includes multiple tools in a single download that IT admins need for a simple, managed deployment. Today we are also announcing official Citrix support with features for employees that work with legacy applications.

Citrix XenApp, Terminal Services & Windows Server on Chrome

Citrix use is nearly ubiquitous in Fortune 500 companies, and the web browser is one of the most virtualized applications. So we’re adding official support for running Citrix XenApp as well as Windows Server with Terminal services on Chrome. In Chrome 58, which we began rolling out this month, we include support for GPU acceleration within Citrix environments, roaming profiles and Windows Server auto-detection for easy configuration for IT administrators. Visit the Google Chrome team May 23-25 in Booth #404 at Citrix Synergy Orlando to learn more.

"With official Citrix support for Chrome, we've invested heavily in joint product development, engineering, sales and marketing. We are seeing the returns with continued customer success and large-scale adoption, particularly in industries such as retail and healthcare." Vipin Borkar, Director of Product Management, Citrix

Deploying and using Chrome just got easier

While the existing, standalone Chrome MSI installation package is still available for companies to download, the new Chrome enterprise bundle provides a single package for IT admins that contains the latest version of the Chrome MSI, the Chrome Legacy Browser Support (LBS) extension as well as administrative policy templates.

It’s common for enterprises to need access to legacy web applications that require older versions of IE due to the use of outdated plugins such as Silverlight and ActiveX. These requirements no longer prevent you from deploying Chrome to your organization thanks to the included Legacy Browser support (LBS) extension in the Chrome enterprise bundle.

This allows IT administrators to configure their employees’ desktops so that when someone clicks a link in Chrome that needs a legacy browser to work, the URL will seamlessly open in a legacy browser. When they're done with the legacy app and type in other URLs that are not specified by the admin, LBS will switch the user back to Chrome to ensure they remain secure.

Everything you need to securely deploy and manage Chrome

Also included in the bundle are the current administrative policy templates that allow admins to configure the available Chrome policies, which will be enforced in the enterprise environment. If Chrome is already deployed but you’re not actively managing Chrome, the policy templates are also available for download separately. For more information on how to configure Chrome policies, check out our Chrome Deployment Guide.

As more enterprise applications move to the web, it’s more critical than ever to have a path for support. IT admins can email or call Google 24 hours a day. This service is included for G Suite customers and is available on a for-fee basis for non-G Suite customers.

With more than 10,000 Chrome users, Carrie Gernant of the Wyoming Department of Enterprise Technology Services notes: “We value the ability to sync from device to device and bring all of our settings and bookmarks with us. As part of IT it makes it easy to do my job, everything is there for me whenever and wherever I need it. The security Chrome provides gives us peace of mind. The auto-updates, phishing protection and built-in malware are all working together to keep our data safe."

Our new Chrome enterprise bundle provides organizations with all of the management tools to make employees productive and can be downloaded here today. We plan to continue to add additional enterprise tools as they become available.

AI in the newsroom: What’s happening and what’s next?

Bringing people together to discuss the forces shaping journalism is central to our mission at the Google News Lab. Earlier this month, we invited Nick Rockwell, the Chief Technology Officer from the New York Times, and Luca D’Aniello, the Chief Technology Officer at the Associated Press, to Google’s New York office to talk about the future of artificial intelligence in journalism and the challenges and opportunities it presents for newsrooms.

The event opened with an overview of the AP's recent report, "The Future of Augmented Journalism: a guide for newsrooms in the age of smart machines,” which was based on interviews with dozens of journalists, technologists, and academics (and compiled with the help of a robot, of course). As early adopters of this technology, the AP highlighted a number of their earlier experiments:

This image of a boxing match was captured by one of AP’s AI-powered cameras.
  • Deploying more than a dozen AI-powered robotic cameras at the 2016 Summer Olympics to capture angles not easily available to journalists
  • Using Google’s Cloud Vision API to classify and tag photos automatically throughout the report
  • Increasing news coverage of quarterly earnings reports from 400 to 4,000 companies using automation

The report also addressed key concerns, including risks associated with unchecked algorithms, potential for workflow disruption, and the growing gap in skill sets.

Here are three themes that emerged from the conversation with Rockwell and D’Aniello:

1. AI will increase a news organization's ability to focus on content creation

D’Aniello noted that journalists, often “pressed for resources,” are forced to “spend most of their time creating multiple versions of the same content for different outlets.” AI can reduce monotonous tasks like these and allow journalists to to spend more of their time on their core expertise: reporting.

For Rockwell, AI could also be leveraged to power new reporting, helping journalists analyze massive data sets to surface untold stories. Rockwell noted that “the big stories will be found in data, and whether we can find them or not will depend on our sophistication using large datasets.”

2. AI can help improve the quality of dialogue online and help organizations better understand their readers' needs.

Given the increasing abuse and harassment found in online conversations, many publishers are backing away from allowing comments on articles. For the Times, the Perspective API tool developed by Jigsaw (part of Google’s parent company Alphabet), is creating an opportunity to encourage constructive discussions online by using machine learning to increase the efficiency of comment moderation. Previously, the Times could only moderate comments on 10 percent of articles. Now, the technology has allowed them to allow commenting on all articles.

The Times is also thinking about using AI to increase the relevance of what they deliver to readers. As Rockwell notes, “Our readers have always looked to us to filter the world, but to do that only through editorial curation is a one-size-fits-all approach. There is a lot we can do to better serve them.”

3. Applying journalistic standards is essential to AI’s successful implementation in newsrooms

Both panelists agreed that the editorial standards that go into creating quality journalism should be applied to AI-fueled journalism. As Francesco Marconi, the author of the AP report, remarked, “Humans make mistakes. Algorithms make mistakes. All the editorial standards should be applied to the technology.”

Here are a few approaches we’ve seen for how those standards can be applied to the technology:

  • Pairing up journalists with the tech. At the AP, business journalists trained software to understand how to write an earnings report.
  • Serving as editorial gatekeepers. News editors should play a role in synthesizing and framing the information AI produces.
  • Ensuring more inclusive reporting. In 2016,, USC and the Geena Davis Foundation used machine learning to create a tool that collects data on gender portrayals in media.

What’s ahead

What will it take for AI to be a positive force in journalism? The conversation showed that while the path wasn’t certain, getting to the right answers would require close collaboration between the technology industry, news organizations, and journalists.

“There is a lot of work to do, but it’s about the mindset,” D’Aniello said. “Technology was seen as a disruptor of the newsroom, and it was difficult to introduce things. I don’t think this is the case anymore. The urgency and the need is perceived at the editorial level.”

We look forward to continuing to host more conversations on important topics like this one. Learn more about the Google News Lab on our website.

A vision for success: Taking LED glasses made in Korea to the world

As part of our series of interviews with entrepreneurs across Asia Pacific who use the Internet to grow their business, we caught up with Kyuhee Lee, marketing manager at Chemion, to find out how this startup went from selling zero pairs of Chemion LED glasses to over 10,000 in just three months.

Kyuhee Lee, Chemion’s marketing manager, puts a pair of Chemion glasses to work at Neofect’s office in Seoul

We’re excited to learn more about you! Tell us about about your startup...and these fancy looking glasses.
Our company, Neofect, has been around since 2010. Today we have 50 employees working primarily on high-tech, rehabilitative devices, including the Rapael Smart Glove, which helps patients strengthen the range of their hand motions. Our business’ core goal has always been to help people have fun while doing everyday, routine activities. That’s why we invented various games associated with our rehabilitative devices. 

We began making LED glasses for fun. We thought it would offer a way to get people to laugh with their friends and have more fun at parties and events. That’s how Chemion got started, and I think this is what differentiates us from other startups—we’re making these glasses just to have fun ourselves and let our users have fun, too.

What were some challenges to launching Chemion?
When we launched the LED glasses in February 2016, we only had B2B experience. First, we tried focusing exclusively on the domestic Korean market, hoping the glasses would catch on at electronic music festivals or become trendy at nightclubs in Seoul. We were disappointed to find the local reception just wasn’t there. But instead of giving up, we knew we needed to re-think how to reach out to new customers. So we did. That is when we started to expand to overseas markets and focus on our digital reach, specifically, via e-commerce and online social platforms like Facebook and YouTube.

How did you turn your business around and make Chemion popular?
Initially, we faced challenges setting up marketing campaigns online. Every time I encountered an issue, I would search for and watch how-to videos on YouTube, including the ones made by AdWords Online Seminar in Korea. This was a huge help in setting up AdWords and I still use the channel today to learn more about Google Analytics.

Eventually, we reached out to the Korea Google Marketing Solutions team for ideas, too. They gave thoughtful advice on campaign optimization strategies. They even shared their screen via Google Hangouts which was cool and extremely time-saving, since I could see exactly what I needed to do. I thank the team for their help!

At what point did your product really begin to take off?
It’s a funny story actually. Chemion glasses were featured in a video that we didn’t even know about for a while! In Q4 2016, sales suddenly shot up, especially from overseas. People were buying Chemion in Germany, the US, the UK, Japan, and even Austria. We had no idea why!

Eventually we found out through our customers that a YouTube creator The Never Cat had posted a video about how he used our glasses and created a role-playing mask to represent a gaming character. He was really creative and found Chemion online and incorporated the glasses into his mask. He took something we had made and made something new and original, which is very cool. Ever since his video went viral, people started asking where they could purchase the glasses and the name of our brand. That’s when we realized the power of YouTube.

What’s next for Chemion?
We need to get our brand out there and reach people who want to have fun. Video is an important medium for getting our message across—especially through the power of YouTube creators. When a famous YouTube creator, Unbox Therapy, decided to review us, we saw a direct impact on our sales, better than our own offline marketing events. That’s really the beauty of the Internet—it allows us to find and connect with people we otherwise wouldn’t be able to reach.
