Weekly Update: November 7, 2020 - Chat, YouTube, Election Week

This has been a heck of a week here in the US. As I write this, votes for the presidential election still being counted. It’s probably a good thing I’m taking a break from refreshing the election results and reading hot takes on Twitter. And hopefully when you read this it will be decided. One of the emerging stories is how well (or not) social media is handling this; Social Media Today has an overview and Casey Newton’s Platformer argues “YouTube got played on Election Day”.

Mark your calendar: On November 15 I will be hosting a blogging workshop through Tangi. It’s free, but you need to sign up in the Tangi mobile app, which is not currently available in the EU or Brazil. I hope to see some of you there!

This week there are a few product updates for Chat, Meet, YouTube and webmasters, and I’ve also included a few tutorials from my fellow Google Product Experts to boost your productivity.
