Google Search updated to 4.0 with Material Design
Google’s Material Design takes the world of Android to a whole new beginning. Now, Google Search is being updated to version 4.0 with a stunning touch of Material Design. The update brings Google Search with bold colours, some fluid animations and simplified layouts. With the new artwork, Google has packed a few other titbit for Google Search version 4.0.
Google released an announcement saying that the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 alongside with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will now have the capability to use the “Okay, Google” voice prompt while the screen is off. Since Android 5.0 Lollipop is out, we all have noticed that this feature was coming with it.
The Google Search app is also getting smarter and a bit “weird” when it comes to reminders. Some users might forget to respond to an email or even forgot to add an event to their calendar, Google Search will try to remind them. Like a personal assistant. And also, users can keep track of their events and to-do lists with the Google Now Card for each reminder.
Google is trying to make it easier for users to use the “Okay, Google” inside other apps as they are finally making an official voice search in some third party apps. The other apps that was voiced with the support of “Okay, Google” are TripAdvisor, TuneIn, Trulia and YouTube.
And another fun feature is added to the update is “Okay, Google, flip a coin”. This feature will help users to make a decision based on what options they give it. Sounds pretty amazing. This update will be out and starts kicking on devices that is running on Android 4.1 and above.
Let us know how do you think about this new and updated version.
