After announcing new features for Android at its I/O event, Google announced that updates will be rolled out to devices. These are functions aimed at improving reading and greater usability for smartwatches with the operating system.
Among the seven new updates, three focus on smartwatches with Wear OS. Now users can listen to music directly from their wrists. Pressing the play button on the new shortcuts on the watch face will play Spotify DJ custom playlists and podcast episodes.
Users will also be able to add quick access to Google Keep to selected notes or to-do lists. The other innovation is for now only those whose transit cards are on watch in the Washington DC and San Francisco regions of the United States.
Google’s list of updates continues with readers to help improve the vocabulary and comprehension skills of children in the literacy process on both Android phones and tablets. There are thousands of kids’ ebooks with badges for practice on Google Play Books. You can listen to the pronunciations, repeat them and get feedback.
There are also three new widgets on phones and tablets to customize the home screen: one for personalized recommendations for movies and series on Google TV, one for Google Finance stocks and news headlines from Google News. Emoji remixes have also been added to the Emoji Kitchen via Gboard.
Finally, Google brought the Dark Web report to Google One. For North American users, momentarily, It is possible to scan to see if the Gmail address has been exposed and additional personal information.. It also provides guidance on what to do to protect yourself online. The feature will be rolled out in 20 more countries in the coming months.
