Google just introduced a number of great updates to Android, but only for its ownÂ Pixel product line. While thatâ€™s awesome for Pixel users, it shuts out the rest of the Android community from important upgrades.
There was a time when new Android updates brought more than just bug fixes and security patches. Like iOS, Google once handed out new features and enhancements throughout the lifespan of each version of Android to keep devices fresh and clean.Â
For example, this latest drop includes adaptive battery improvements to make your phone last longer, a new bedtime feature in the Clock app that can play ambient noise and automatically limit notifications, and safety features that can alert your emergency contacts if youâ€™re alone and in a potentially dangerous situation.
