Android 10 aims to save lives with a new feature
« on: August 28, 2019, 05:59:51 AM »


Android may be losing one of its definitive traits with the latest release—that is, the confectionary-themed naming scheme—but that doesn't mean it's going to skimp out on introducing new features. On the contrary – Android 10 is expected to usher in many new improvements and features, including native support for foldable devices, a system-wide Dark Mode, and Assistant-powered Smart Replies and Suggestions.

We heard about many of the new features coming to Android 10, and even saw some of them demoed live, at this year's Google I/O conference. However, there's one that Google's kept under wraps, and it could turn out to be one of the most important additions to Android ever. It could literally be a life-saver!

Android Q Beta 3 contains a hidden "Safety Hub" app, and inside its code developers have found evidence that Google is developing an automatic car crash detection feature that could potentially save lives in traffic accidents, provided its implemented in the final release of Android 10.

As it stands, the Safety Hub app seems to be exclusive to Pixel phones, which could mean that, upon release, the automatic car crash detection feature may not be available to all phones running the latest version of Android. However, this is a common Google practice, and doesn't mean that the feature won't be making its way onto other phones. On the contrary, Google often deploys and tests new features on its Pixel phones, only to polish and make them available for everyone.
