Google dropped June feature update a few days ago which gave pixel phone users a new experience.

The new Google features in Nepal can be expected within a year or more. Let’s check out the six new cool features google has provided us with.

Android Earthquake Alert System

Google has developed an earthquake detection network which is now accessible in Android devices across the globe. We can get alerts of the earthquake before it hits the ground. This helps people to get to safety in case it’s a big one.

The system was previously launched in New Zealand and Greece only. But now it is available in Turkey, the Philippines, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. We can hope for the new Google features in Nepal within a year since it is being prioritized in countries with higher earthquake risks.

With this new Google feature, we can star a message on your message app which keeps track of what’s important.

Now I hear you asking what’s the point!! The point is that you can find that important messages without scrolling through all the conversations. Just tap-hold-star and you can access the message through a starred message category. Google has claimed to broaden the starred messages more over the coming weeks.

Finding the perfect kitchen emoji system at the perfect time

Now, we can find a perfect combo emoji for your feelings. Yes!! You can see contextual suggestions for the emoji once you’ve typed a text message. What can be a better way than this to use the perfect one in your conversation with your loved ones. Right??

The Android users with version 6.0 or above can use them soon. As for the really curious ones who cannot wait to start using them, there is a Gboard beta available on the internet.

Voice access to your favorite apps

Now, the google assistant will open your favorite apps with your voice command. We can ask “Hey Google, Pay my electricity bills” to jump right across the app to the page where your payment will be ready will the last authorization remaining. We can access all these right on the lock screen as well.

To check what’s new further, you can ask “Hey Google, shortcuts”. These new Google features in Nepal are gonna make many tasks easier.

Gaze detection and improved password input

The new feature to google is specially designed for people with motor disabilities. Now, the voice command will lead you to fast navigation for the apps.

The gaze detection is only Beta now but it will allow your phone to work only when your gaze is on the screen. It will give a good balance between the work and talks since it will self-maintain the phone.

Furthermore, now we can have an enhanced experience while we input the password through the voice command. We can say “capital A n d r o i d” or “percent sign” to input %. It is supposed to be far faster and safer than it is now.

New experience with self-customization Android Auto

Android Auto is the system for your cars and other transport vehicles. Now, we can enhance your experience by the customization modes like you can launch your screen directly from the phone and manually set the dark mode.

If it’s your first time using the Android Auto, you can get started faster than before with simple tabs. There is also an added A to Z button for your media content.
