With less than 48 hours until I / O 2022, Google today released an overview of what the Android team could announce at a developer conference.
Android account on Twitter today asked “Which update do you most like to see from May 11-12?” He provided four options:
- Security updates
- Message updates
- Updates on different devices
- New partnerships
“Cross-Device Updates” currently leads the group and returns to the “Better Together” announcements released at CES 2022 in January. This includes the ability to unlock your Chromebook, Android phone or tablet with Wear OS, as well as bringing Fast Pair and Nearby Share to Windows computers. An I / O could be Google’s opportunity to provide details on a launch or additional integration.
“Message Updates” are in second place, with Google Messages, a phone dial-up app, and the Duo ultimately overseen by Android presenter Hiroshi Lockheimer. This comes when Google announced in March that Android’s default SMS / RCS client receives or has received, “Show iPhone reactions as emoticons,” an integration of Google photos, categories, and incentives.
“Security updates”, probably along with privacy, are always the key to any Android release, while “New Partnerships” is pretty curious. Although there are several emerging OEMs, this could apply to application and service offerings.
The material design team had a similar tweet today. Already last week, Roboto Flex announced, while the Material You upgrade is sure to be on the table.
