Google Career Growth - Data Center

I come from a data science and analytics background. I was job hunting for Google opportunities and received a call back for a job as a data center technician. I am very excited about it, however, my concern is that I may remain stagnant career wise if I transition from my current employment as a data analyst.

My question is, what is career growth like at Google, outside of climbing tiers or wages, can I branch out of if I get my masters in DS or CS while I work at the data center? I want to work within Google for one of the data science or software development teams but I do not have the experience to get one of those opportunities yet, I have tried. Would it be possible for me to work as a data center technician for a few years and branch out into something else at Google?

Also, do you think it would harm my ability to move back into the DS/CS field if I could not move into another area while I worked there, seeing as this is more of an IT, network,and server hardware background rather than statistical or programming?

People who work in the Data Center, please let me know your true thoughts. Thank you.

Chromecast 4k remote quality

Hey everyone. It's been little over a month since I got chromecast 4k. The remote is just the worst, missclicks, sometimes not working at all and the cherry on top is the squeaky button. Just one, but oh my God it's driving me insane. Is this what Google's quality has become? Sad.

Redownloading app after deleting pictures from Google Photos, but not my phone

I just deleted all of my photos on Google photos (but not my phone) by turning off backup and deleting the app from my phone, then logging into Google Photos via browser and deleting photos from there. My question is: If I redownload Google Photos on my phone, log back in, and turn back up on again, will the photos I’ve deleted from Google Photos via browser be erased from my phone upon doing so?

The charging port on my phone is starting to fail and I can no longer transfer photos from my phone to my computer with a cord. I have transferred most of my photos from my phone to my computer using Google Photos. However since then, I have taken new photos and now I would like to transfer all my new photos from my phone to my computer via Google Photos. Of course, this would require redownloading Google Photos to my phone, logging back in, and turning back up on again. My worry is upon doing so, all of the photos that I’ve deleted from Google Photos will be deleted from my phone. Please advise!

What will be the future of Google Adsense, given that search engines are moving towards chat-based results?

I have been using CoPilot for my research. At most, it lists the sources below the chat. I seldom feel the need to click those references. Google too is trying to move its users to GAI-based results. I can foresee a day when links won't be required anymore in the SERPs because AI can provide satisfactory answers. Might be in a year, at this rate of AI growth.

Some people are optimistic that websites will continue to prosper because GAI needs data to provide results. From what I see, corporate will start in-house data production. What happens to the websites and blogs that employ AdSense? Will there still be visitors to individual blogs?

Also, would it be wiser to move to platforms such as YouTube and TikTok as they're not at this kind of risk?

Google Lens accuracy or should I say inaccuracy 😅

I am curious is it just me or is Google Lens pretty inaccurate on image searching. For example when I try to search a person (saved photo and live camera search) it immediately highlights their clothes rather then the face and when I tap on their face to search it doesn’t show an answer (even for famous people) sometimes.

Add to Watchlist Button Missing

As the title says the button is missing for me, I’ve tried on chrome, safari, and the Google app, but it’s completely missing. I searched shows and movies on my current watchlist to double check and now they don’t have the option to add to add to watchlist. Does anyone know how to fix it? I use it all the time so I’d really appreciate the help.

Husband and I hacked within seconds of each other

My husband and I just got dual notifications that there was a “critical security breach” to our accounts within literal seconds of each other. Why would that happen? Is there some kind of data breach? Our accounts aren’t connected in any way so this seems like a freaky coincidence.

Neesfeed results on Android OS

I’m going to cross post this to the r/android subreddit as well, but I’m wondering if there is some way to filter feed results on my Motorola RAZR+ newsfeed so as not to see stories more than a day or two old. Example, I’m seeing numerous stories about Nintendo suing Yuzu, but it’s a week old and has been resolved. I’ve looked around and haven’t really found anything. Thanks.
