Renowned technology company, Google has announced a massive Android redesign and new features to help users work from home, shop and do more to protect their personal data.
This development is a plan by the American multinational company to make up for lost time at its annual developer conference this week.
The company kicked off a virtual version of the event on Tuesday, since it canceled Google I/O last year due to the pandemic.
Considering the fact that the deadly Coronavirus is fast spreading globally, the company which specializes in Internet-related services and products, put into consideration the rules to stay safe as it staffers wore masks and spread out to watch the keynote on the lawn of its Mountain View, California campus
Interestingly, this is a big contrast to previous years where thousands of attendees were packed into an arena.
According to CNN, here are a few of the biggest announcements so far from the event, which runs for several days.
Google showed off a new look for Android 12, the latest version of its mobile operating system. It features bigger buttons, a large clock on the homescreen that changes in size depending on how many notifications appear, and muted pastel colors.
Android 12 goes big on personalization: Users will be able to change the color palette and, when a wallpaper is selected, the system will determine which colors are dominant and complementary by adding shades to volume controls, widgets and other tools to complete the look.
