Nokia and Xiaomi reveal the first phones to get Android Q updates

Google IO 2019

Apple will announce its new line of iPhones this fall. They're made by the same people, they run the same software, and they have exactly the same backside camera setup. Somehow Google managed to find room in the Pixel 3a for the audio jack, despite the phone having nearly identical height, width, and thickness as with the Pixel 3. It's impressive to see Google pull off such a good phone, even with how underwhelming the Pixel 3 was for many.

The catch? Slower processors, lack of water resistance, and no wireless charging.

Google also said it will provide developers suggested replies to help them respond to users faster. Both versions will be available in 3 colors Google calls Just Black, Clearly White and Purple-ish. You can head over to our partners at CNET for a full review of both devices.

New Google Pixel 3a phones are displayed during the Google I/O conference at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California.

Additionally, if you don't have the app installed, you can subscribe and install the app simultaneously - allowing you to get straight to watching content.

Google's smart reply feature is also getting expanded almost OS wide, now suggesting replies in messaging app notification, and also suggesting opening addresses in Google Maps. Google included one on its cheaper phones.

Sure to contenders for a place on our best camera phone list, the 3a and XL boast the same Sony IMX363 12.2MP f/1.8 rear and 8MP f/1.8 front cameras as their older brothers - though sadly they lose the secondary, wide angle 8MP camera on the selfie side.

More frequent security updates is one of nearly fifty new features and changes in Android focused on security and privacy.

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to turn off Google Assistant. Making our lives more comfortable, while simultaneously increasing concerns over privacy and data. While Microsoft prepared for the Day 2 of Build, Google took the stage to announce their plans for this year and the things they're working on.

Though you'll usually be using Google Assistant and your voice to access all of these options hands-free (by speaking the relevant commands), the driving mode interface is streamlined enough that you could easily tap on various icons to access their functions. If you're not the sort of person who takes selfies, and doubly so when it comes to group selfies, you'll probably not miss this feature. Think of it like clearing cookies on your browser just with a lot more data than you might be aware is being collected.

Now the biggest promise is that you are getting the Pixel camera experience here, and I'm kind of shocked. For this, all you need to do is enrol your device in the Android Beta for Pixel program by visiting this page. In the same bid, the company on Tuesday announced the introduction of revised interfaces in several apps and services, which will bring privacy controls to the front.
