When a device goes from just working to actually making life easier, Android is behind it. It’s the reason your GPS avoids traffic, your watch can text and your Assistant can answer questions. It’s the operating system inside 2.5 billion active devices. Everything from 5G phones to stunning tablets, Android powers them all.
Android is open to everyone: developers, designers and device makers. That means more people can experiment, imagine and create things the world has never seen.
Use your camera to search the web.
With Google Lens, you can search and do more with what you see, simply by pointing your camera. Many Android cameras come with Google Lens built-in. That means it can look up clothing and home decor, copy and translate text, and identify plants, animals and landmarks – all in real time, right from your camera
Translate languages in an instant.
It all happens through your camera. With Android, when you point your lens at text, Google Translate can automatically scan the words and convert them to the language you want. It works in 25 languages so far and even if you are offline. Menu’s, street signs — if your camera can take a picture of it, Android can translate it.
Automatically caption media playing on your phone.
With a single tap, Live Caption will automatically caption media playing on your phone. Videos, podcasts, and audio messages, across any app—even stuff you record.
Your phone stays safe with built-in security.
When you have Android, you have security that’s right there out of the box and never stops working. Google Play Protect scans all your apps, the software gets regular security updates, and the platform is always improving. It’s like a security guard that never takes a break, a nap, or a vacation. This being said, it is always a good idea to put a 3rd party application like Trend Micro on your phone to protect your precious data and passwords.
You stay in control of your data.
On Android, you get to decide when and if your data is shared, like your Web & App Activity or Location History. If an app accesses your location while you are not using it, you’ll get a notification. And if you ever want to change permissions, all your Privacy settings are in one place. It’s privacy, with you in the driver’s seat.
