As part of the Google I/O developer conference, the company on Wednesday announced changes coming to its Play Store, including beefed up security, better store listings and improvements on updating apps.

San Francisco- The Android mobile Operating System (OS) is now running on 2.5 billion devices globally, up from 2 billion, Google announced two years ago. "You'll get Call Screen, Google Duo video calling, spam protection, and caller ID", said the developers who are in charge of Google Phone in the patch notes. With Android Q, smartphone users can expect a host of new features that Google shared a glimpse of.

Because the initial buzz around these phones has been nearly universally positive-and because these are the first Pixels to be sold through carriers besides Verizon-we've put together a quick roundup the various deals retailers and carriers are offering alongside the Pixel 3A on launch week.

The introduction of Nest Hub Max will enable multiple connections with Google's Nest series products of smart door locking, lighting and surveillance.

This year Google is moving this driving-optimised mode into Android's Google Assistant smartphone app, offering easy voice-controlled access to navigation, music playback and messaging while on the road.

People have been constantly complaining that companies became too greedy and wouldn't even allow them to use a simple audio jack but force them to buy their expensive Bluetooth headsets.

Also in a bid to soup-up Android security, a new feature dubbed "Project Mainline" will ensure users receive updates without having to wait for an OEM release, and without having to reboot their device. It will do this by making Assistant understand a user's personal preferences with usage patterns. The new mode will be made available on Android smartphones this summer. This will allow users to perform many tasks like setting a car's temperature, checking fuel levels or checking if the doors are locked or not, remotely.

Google's Android Auto OEM partnerships now cover 95 per cent of the industry in terms of new cars sales volume and the feature is expected to be available in 100 million cars across the globe by 2020.
