LG V30® And LG G6® Premium Smartphones To Earn 'Android Enterprise Recommended' Certification In Google-Led Program

Google announces Android Enterprise Recommended program

Since all we have to go on is Google Issue Tracker's note that a dark mode feature will show up in a future Android version, we have no idea if the future dark mode will be the same or similar to the one initially available on the Pixel 2, or be something more akin to what custom ROMs offer. Now developers can publish AR apps directly to the Play Store.

Two of the Pixel 2's main software selling points are expanding with the announcement of new partnerships and devices today. Files Go, the storage manager for devices that need more memory and space, adds a small but useful feature to the app, making it easier to back up your files on Google Drive, which is logical given they're all part of the whole Google ecosystem. Currently, I find that Lens is quite adept at differentiating between various types of flowers, but struggles at more hard things like picking a specific auto model or identifying other types of greenery.

Google claims that the aim of Android Go is to make smartphones attainable in developing markets that have the largest populations of budget consumers. This allows developers to test their apps in a virtual environment directly from a desktop computer.

The Assistant is also getting some upgrades thanks to the addition of routines, which enables users to create a list of stuff for it to do with a single command. Moreover, the app has a new experience that lets you digitally place yourself in the football club, Barcelona FC's Camp Nou stadium. ARCore works on 100 million Android smartphones, and advanced AR capabilities are available on all of these devices.

He also told the agents that he did not know why an email between him and Person A was not produced to Mueller's office. Russian Federation has denied meddling in the campaign and Trump has denied any collusion took place.

Even though it wasn't a real dog, Google Lens still identified the breed correctly. Also, the user asked for it to be in 9.0, so we could see the mode in Android P when the developer beta drops in the coming weeks.

Google Assistant for Android will get live camera-based Lens functionality on "compatible flagship devices" from Samsung, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Sony, and HMD/Nokia.

On Friday, the internet giant announced plans to bring the technology, which was initially limited to Pixel phones, to its Google Photos apps for Android and iOS in the coming weeks.
