By now you may have heard of the latest update to Google’s Android OS, which has seen a slew of changes in recent months, but which is also being tested by the Android team for some time.
Now, Google is taking a closer look at which areas it will work with to make the update more convenient for users.
One of the changes the team is looking at is how to handle the “default” location of Android devices, which can be a problem when you don’t want to be pinned to a particular device.
It’s a bit like using a dialer on your iPhone.
It is possible to get the location of an Android device, but it will take a while for the location to be displayed in the app.
“If you don, for instance, want to have your location available for navigation, you can do so using the [location] menu option in Settings,” the Google team writes.
“Or you can select your preferred location using the ‘location’ menu option.
We want to make sure that your location is displayed, for as long as it’s possible, on your phone.”
As Google notes, this is different from what you would expect, where the default app location is still your home screen.
“You don’t have to choose your home location.
You just have to change your default location,” the team explains.
“That is the way we’ve always tried to do it, but now we want to try to keep it that way.”
If you’re a developer, this might be a welcome change to your apps.
If you’re just using Android as a personal device, however, you might not be happy.
It might also make your apps a bit less attractive to users, especially if you don´t want to pay for the privilege of having a default location for your device.
Google has already started working on how to fix this issue.
The team notes that Google is also testing various other areas of how the OS handles the “normal” device locations, including the home screen, lock screen, and app settings.
“We’re trying to make it as simple as possible for you to switch between these locations,” the developer explains.
This isn’t the first time Google has been working on an Android update.
Earlier this year, the company released an update to Android that made the Android operating system “smarter” by making it easier to switch the settings for the various parts of the OS.
This is something that we’re already seeing in the Android version of the new Pixel Launcher, which is the app launcher on the phone.
Google has been actively working on the Android OS for a long time, and has even used Android to test new features of the operating system, such as virtual assistants and the new Chrome OS.
