You might not know what it’s called, but when you swipe right from the first home page on your Android phone, you’ll see the Google Discover feed. There, you scroll down the list of stories that Google knows you’re interested in. For example, this writer’s Discover page shows tech stories (including some written by my colleagues and myself for PhoneArena), articles about the sports I follow (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL), stories about the Beatles and reports about the stock market.

Change feeds from edge to edge. The width of each story in the feed is the same, but the height is different in each row. There will be two columns for each row in the portrait.

In the Google app, you’ll see a three-column feed in landscape, with less blank space to the right of the Discover, Search, and Collections buttons on the left side of the screen. In portrait, you get two columns, similar to how the Discover feed looks.

On the Pixel tablet, the Discover feed and the Google app will both include a bar titled “From your apps” that will show you the content that’s recommended to you. The Pixel Tablet may come with a 10.95-inch display and have a Google Tensor 2 SoC under the hood.
