Google's artificial intelligence is ending Internet trolling


The next time they try to Rickroll you through a message, Google will help you avoid falling into the trap.

Maybe next time you try make a joke to a friend or family member, Google's artificial intelligence ruined it for you.

Several Reddit users have found that the smart suggestion function for responses to notifications is able to identify when a link received by message corresponds to that of the song youtube video Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley, commonly used to trolling the Internet through the joke known as Rickroll.

Google now prevents you from getting a "Rickroll" if you use Android.

Google will notify you the next time they try to make you a "Rickroll"

Those who are not too familiar with the jargon Internet, they should know that the rickroll began to become popular in 2007 in the forum 4chan. From that moment on, many users began to try cheat others by posting links that supposedly led to some kind of interesting content, when the reality is that it was the Rick Astley music video. Even YouTube itself took advantage of this joke to trolling to its users in 2008, by “rickrolling” all those people who clicked on the featured videos for a day.

In this case, what Google has done is implement an "anti-rickroll shield" in Android. To do this, it has taken advantage of the smart suggestions function implemented in notifications from Android 10, by which it is analyzes the context of a received message and shows different options with which to respond to that message.

If the function determines that the link received in a message corresponds to the one in Rick Astley's song, ** suggestions include responses such as "Not falling for that" or "You got me"Something like" I'm not going to fall "or" You got me. "

Of course, bypassing this “lock” is easy: just share a link to YouTube video different from the original. In fact, that same technique was used by a Twitter user to "Rickrollear" to YouTube itself.

But this is not the only “big” news today related to Google: today, the company also confirmed that it will start paying Android users to collect and use their data to display personalized ads.
