Google rolls out new ‘on-body’, lock detection Android updates impressive
New Delhi: The search giant seems to be working on new and newer products almost constantly. At the same time it continues to improve its existing product lines too. This is the reason that it has come to dominate our daily lives like no one else.
Though some products that look to be massive hits before launch tend to fail, there are many other products that go on to rule the tech world.
Now there are reports that the company is all set to come out with a new feature for Android smartphones that can detect human touch and automatically adjust the lock mode. Leaks suggest that the search giant engineers are actually using the accelerometer of the phone, to let the feature find out as to when a user is actually holding the phone or puts it in his or her pocket.
The leaks suggest that the feature will make the handset remain unlock if you do so till you are holding it or keep it in your pocket. As soon as you put the handset somewhere it it will lock again; while picking it up again will require you to manually put in the passcode.
While talking about the feature a report in the AndroidPolice blog states that the purpose behind this great feature is to add just a little convenience and security, and avoid the data being easily stolen by potential thieves if you leave your phone sitting on a table or forget it somewhere.
