3. Find official broadcaster highlights (and more) on YouTube and Google TV

From July 23, catch live events as well as clips and highlights from official Olympic broadcasters, including Marca Claro and Eurosport, around the world on their YouTube channels.  In the U.S, YouTube TV will also show NBCUniversal’s live coverage of Tokyo 2020 and there’s tons more to watch on the official Olympics channel on YouTube. Earlier this month, we added Olympic-related content on YouTube with new YouTube Originals series “Strive,” “How To Olympics,” “Break the Record” and a feature-length documentary “World Debut” ahead of opening ceremonies.

Google TV users can head to the For you tab and open the Olympics page to find apps from official broadcasters and tune into live streams and missed events, or be inspired by popular sports movies, sports shows, videos on Japan and more.

4. Let Google Assistant do the legwork

Wondering who won? Just ask “Hey Google, who won women’s basketball in the Olympics?” Rooting for a specific country? “Hey Google, how many medals does France have in the Olympics?” You can even say, “Hey Google, tell me a fun fact about the games in Tokyo.” Whether you’re using your phone, speaker, TV or other enabled device, Google Assistant will have all the important details.

Plus, in the U.S., NBC is bringing an exclusive game to the Google Assistant. It’s already available on all devices, so test your summer sports knowledge with dozens of trivia questions. Just say “Hey Google, play NBC Sports Trivia” to start your quest for trivia gold.

5. Keep up to date with Google Play apps

Don’t miss a single moment: Download our collection of apps including the official Olympics app, official broadcasters, news organizations, social, sports and games, plus fitness.

6. Explore Japan with Street View, Google Arts & Culture and Translate

Even if you can’t experience the Games IRL, you can take a virtual tour of the country with Google Street View. From snow-capped mountains and glistening cave formations to cities packed with history and culture — you can see it all without leaving your chair. Or with Google Arts & Culture you can explore Japan’s traditional crafts and mouth-watering food; Umami Land will be particularly fun for foodies. After all that, you might feel inspired to learn a little Japanese, and Google Translate has you covered.

Good luck to all the athletes taking part, and let the games begin!

Countering hack-for-hire groups

As part of TAG’s mission to counter serious threats to Google and our users, we’ve published analysis on a range of persistent threats including government-backed attackers, commercial surveillance vendors, and serious criminal operators. Today, we’re sharing intelligence on a segment of attackers we call hack-for-hire, whose niche focuses on compromising accounts and exfiltrating data as a service.

In contrast to commercial surveillance vendors, who we generally observe selling a capability for the end user to operate, hack-for-hire firms conduct attacks themselves. They target a wide range of users and opportunistically take advantage of known security flaws when undertaking their campaigns. Both, however, enable attacks by those who would otherwise lack the capabilities to do so.

We have seen hack-for-hire groups target human rights and political activists, journalists, and other high-risk users around the world, putting their privacy, safety and security at risk. They also conduct corporate espionage, handily obscuring their clients’ role.

To help users and defenders, we will provide examples of the hack-for-hire ecosystem from India, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates and context around their capabilities and persistence mechanisms.

Neely felt that Woolaroo would suit children in particular, allowing them to use technology as a way to explore their heritage.
