Google has announced new Android features for Google apps and devices, aimed at improving productivity and connectivity. These include an updated AI assistant widget, photo import option in Google Wallet Pass, new communication apps in Android Auto, and an option to set up activity and sleep data in personal Routines.
Assistance at a Glance, the Android AI assistant, has been redesigned and updated to provide more useful information about events, travel, and local weather. The photo import tool in Wallet will make it easier to upload passes with barcodes and QR codes. Via Android Auto, users will now be able to join Zoom and Webex calls.
In addition to these updates, Android has gotten a new logo that appears closer to Google’s own logo. The most major differences are a capital ‘A’ in place of the small ‘a’ in ‘Android’ and the robot appearing in 3D.
