Google releases March 2018 security patch update for Pixel and Nexus devices

Google's Android security patch for March now available for Nexus and Pixel devices

By doing this, users can maintain contact with others without having to jump out of another app they may be using.

Google has announced the first developer preview of Android P is now available bringing several new features include support for devices with a notched display.

It'll also be rolling it out soon for iPhone users.

For now, Google is gradually rolling out Lens to Android users, while people with iOS devices will have to wait a little longer.

On Monday, March 5, Google announced expanded features for Google Lens inside Google Photos on Android.

On the other hand, Google will support the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL for a minimum of three years of platform updates, meaning that they should even get Android R in 2020.

As well as these new features, Google is improving a number of things in Android P including Security with a more consistent interface for prompting for fingerprints, as well as moving to Transport Layer Security (TLS) for transmitting text. Google Lens literally turns your Android phone into a visual search engine. That technology will let your device get your specific location based on information gathered from Wi-Fi hotspots. Previously, Google Lens was only available for Pixel phones. Features like Google Assistant and Google Lens are the next generation of innovations in the present century. Or, if you photograph something with an address on it, Lens will identify the address and pull up Google Maps directions, saving you from having to type it in.

Another notable aspect of Google Lens is its capability to perceive information within a photo and accurately carry out the function. However, we all know what you really want to learn about. Pixel 2 devices will also have support for Qualcomm's Hexagon HVX driver, giving developers further improvements in performance on those devices. "If you have critical, immersive content, you can also use new APIs to check the cutout shape and request full-screen layout around it", the blog post noted.

However, Google's expansion game has been playing out well as the market remains excited by the practical Lens tool in Google Photos, allowing Android users to have a taste of the AI-powered image recognition app.
