Android is always up to something. So much happens around this technology that it is natural for us to personify it. With new updates, latest firmware or exciting applications, this OS keeps surprising us. The latest buzz in India is about Google Maps getting live traffic alerts in India. This excellent feature has made life convenient for millions of drivers across the globe. And now, even Indian drivers will be able to dodge the notorious congestions which they face on the country’s roads using the real time feature of Google Maps.
How does this feature really work? Well, this application starts working as soon as you enter your desired destination. The app warns the driver of any major congestions or roadblocks that he may face while driving. Based on this information, the application also suggests alternative routes which might be longer in distance but will save time and prove to be more convenient. Google Maps will also alert you of any distress scenarios on the road which may arise due to heavy traffic, construction work or even an accident and all this happens before you even begin your trip. The feature is supported with a vocal alert which makes the driver aware of the situation and suggests other route options.
There is another amazing thing that Google did, less than a year back, which might have skipped your attention. Google added a tool to its official Android website which helps you in buying the best smartphone as per your requirements. This tool is available across the world but currently shows the smartphones which are only available in US. This, I am sure is going to change pretty soon as Android has a huge international market outside US, as well.
So how does this tool help you? It’s simple. Once you get to the page on the website, it asks you to choose three or more features that you use the most e.g. calling, texting/instant messaging or clicking photographs. There are certain follow up questions after this and then, once you click the “Show Me Phones” tab, you are presented with the best options of the phones available as per your needs. You can filter the phones on basis of screen sizes, camera and pricing etc. This tool will prove very helpful for anyone who is new to buying the smartphones or faces challenges when it comes to technology.
Tools and updates like these are just a couple of examples of what Android does on a daily basis. The minds behind this research are the actual stars. The Android Developers, Android Engineers and so many more professionals who work and develop tools and applications to make our lives simpler. Technology is an inseparable part of our existence now and we have to be in unison with it.
