Google preps Quick Peek feature for mobile search

Google is said to be testing a new feature for its mobile search product that allows users to view the contents of a search result's page without having to click through to the full page. The Quick Peek feature, similar to Apple's QuickLook, currently shows up next to results linking to Wikipedia. The preview page loads in an overlay that appears atop the regular results. There is no word on how widely the feature may be rolled out or if Google will change it before wider release.

Google Music replacing explicit songs with 'clean' ones

Google's recently added Scan and Match feature is reportedly replacing songs that feature explicit lyrics with their sanitized counterparts. Scan and Match, which examines, tags, and duplicates a user's music library instead of uploading entire files, is placing clean versions into users' online music drives. Users finding that their music does not feature the obscenities they expected are encouraged to choose the "fix incorrect match" option, whereupon Google Music will upload the raw source track instead.
