Google now offers an interactive periodic table that you can use to find out more about the elements. You can find it by searching for “periodic table” and clicking the “explore elements” button on the right side of the page or by navigating to it directly right here.
Although I was not the best in chemistry growing up, I have had lots of fun clicking on elements and learning about their atomic mass and melting points. I also enjoy seeing 3D models of each element which I find very cool. Each element I click on has a brief fact. For example, thallium was the murdered agent in Agatha Christie’s novels.
The periodic table is being announced alongside a few new features in Google Assistant designed to help families, including updates to Family Bell reminders. They were initially limited to using Nest smart speakers or smart displays last year. But, Google claims that they will soon be able to ring on smartphones and other mobile devices. Family Bell on the Nest hub will soon display a checklist whenever a Family Bell goes off. This could prove to be useful for reminding a certain number of tasks.
Google has also added a way for you to create a routine once you have turned off your alarm. This could allow you to check the weather or the news immediately after you wake up. This feature will also be available soon.
