- In the Google app .

How Google decides what shows up in your feed
To know what to show in your feed, Google uses information from your device and from other Google products.
Google also uses data that's stored in your Google Account. This data is based on settings you can change or turn on or off. These settings may include:
- Web & App Activity
- Device Information (For Google to use this information, you need to have Web & App Activity turned on.)
- Location History (For Google to use this information, you need to have Web & App Activity turned on.)
- Location settings: Some updates in your feed are shown based on your home location. If your home location isn't available, Google may use your work location or your device's current location. Learn how to set your home and work locations.
