New features landing in Android soon
New features are rolling out to Android in the coming weeks, which are as follows:
For certain emojis, users will be able to discover various versions in the “Emoji Kitchen” on the G board virtual keyboard, as well as combine two to create a new one. Google promises no fewer than 14,000 possible combinations.
Google is working with various publishers in the U.S.A. and the U.K. to offer automatically generated audio versions of books that aren’t yet available in this format. The tool should be available to publishers in early 2021.
Favorites in Maps
Google Maps will simplify navigation between previously saved locations (like home, work, school, stores and favorite places) with its new “Go” tab. Users can also save preferred public transport routes.
Soon, it’ll be possible to share one or several applications with nearby Android users via Google Play, even when there’s no internet connection.
Voice Access for smartphone navigation
The enhanced Voice Access app will let anyone and everyone control their smartphone UI by voice, using simple commands like “open Chrome,” “scroll down,” “reply,” etc, making hands-free navigation easy. NVG
