Google recently and silently announced the release of an app that allows users to curate content from the web, much like Pinterest.
The app is called Keen and is available now through Google sign in from a browser or an android app. The webpage is full of large animations and a ticker that shows things the user may be interested in.
Google’s blog writer said, “You make a ‘keen,’ which can be about any topic, whether it’s baking delicious bread at home, getting into birding, or researching typography. Keen lets you curate the content you love, share your collection with others, and find new content based on what you have saved.”
The app lets users save articles, Youtube videos, blog posts, shopping links, and more. Further, users can follow other “keens” that are created by other users, similar to the functions on Pinterest. The keens can be kept private so only the user sees them. Also Read- T-Mobile outages case issues across the US for customers
The qualities that may make the app more popular is Google’s machine learning abilities. “The more you save to a keen and organize it, the better the recommendations become. Even if you’re not an expert on a topic, you can start curating a keen and save a few interesting “gems” or links that you find helpful,” Adams writes.
In conclusion, “Keen isn’t intended to be a place to spend endless hours browsing. Instead, it’s a home for your interests: a place to grow them, share them with loved ones, and find things that will help in making this precious life count.”
