There may be additionally fascinating work on “filters.”
About APK Perception: On this ‘APK Insight’ publish, we’ve decompiled the newest model of an software that Google uploaded to the Play Retailer. Once we decompile these recordsdata (known as APKs, within the case of Android apps), we’re in a position to see numerous strains of code inside that trace at attainable future options. Take into account that Google might or might not ever ship these options, and our interpretation of what they’re could also be imperfect. We’ll attempt to allow these which are nearer to being completed, nonetheless, to indicate you the way they’ll look within the case that they do ship. With that in thoughts, learn on.
Reminders in At A Look
At A Glance is built-in into the Pixel Launcher, but in addition a standalone widget that exhibits the day, date, and climate. It might additionally show calendar occasions, upcoming flights, and site visitors info. Google app 9.61 provides Reminders to the record of alerts that may conveniently seem.
The settings toggle seems on this beta and is enabled by default, however we have now but to efficiently get a reminder to pop-up. It will presumably present the reminders system utilized by Assistant and the Google app. Associated strings counsel that At A Look will present alerts in a lead as much as the reminder and through, in addition to the place it’s positioned, if a spot is connected.
<string identify=”reminder_event_during”>%1$s now</string>
<string identify=”reminder_event_pre”>%1$s in %2$s</string>
<string identify=”reminder_subtitle”>at %1$s</string>
Improved translation in Google Lens
Again in December, Google revamped the Lens interface throughout Images and Android to be extra compact. Nonetheless, the interpretation characteristic that beforehand allowed customers to overlay translated text right in the viewfinder was eliminated. The present UI will acknowledge textual content in your display, however push customers out to the Google Translate app on Android.
Google app 9.61 means that Lens is planning to regain that inline translation functionality as a part of a “filter” — extra on that under. Such options may embody “Auto-detecting” what language you’re at the moment seeing on display.
<string identify=”lens_translate_filter_params_auto_language_long”>Auto-detect language</string>
<string identify=”lens_translate_filter_params_label”>%1$s → %2$s</string>
<string identify=”lens_translate_filter_params_title”>Translate choices</string>
AR search “filters”?
Google app 9.61 options three totally different strings which are formatted “CATEGORY_filter_name.” “Dining” and “Shopping” would counsel some type of textual content search outcomes filter, however “Translate” is presumably associated to Google Lens. Assuming all three are associated, Eating and Procuring may very well be a filter — or layer — in augmented actuality.
For instance, customers may apply the eating filter when pointing their digital camera on the world to solely see eating places and ignore different companies and landmarks.
<string identify=”permission_not_granted”>To see well-liked dishes, activate location</string>
<string identify=”search_nearby”>Search restaurant close by</string>
Talking of meals, there are two different strings in 9.61 associated to looking for eating places close by. This might after all be within the context of a map as customers need to “turn on location,” but it surely may additionally apply to AR.
There are usually not sufficient strings in Google app 9.61 to positively say what these “filters” are referring to, however AR is one attainable candidate. These filters may very well be considered apps for augmented actuality that stretch performance, precisely like Actions on Google for voice. In contrast to Assistant, Lens has but to see a means for third-party builders to take part.
The Materials Theme settings web page now correctly themes navigation and standing bar parts black in order that they’re seen in opposition to the white background. It additionally tweaks the app bar so there’s a visible separation.
