The first OS innovation was digital key support for some BMW models. True, such a key will only work on Pixel 6 and Galaxy S21 smartphones.
The next innovation is the Family Bell feature. It allows users to create group reminders. For example, decorate the tree, watch a movie in the evening, etc. The function supports many settings. In addition, it will send notifications not only to smartphones, but also tablets, smart speakers, smart displays.
Of the interesting changes, it is also worth noting new interactive widgets for Google Photos and Google Play Books, automatic reset of permissions for applications that you rarely use, an updated Emoji Kitchen section in Gboard, and automatic activation of Android Auto mode in the car.
The innovations will begin to be sent to devices in waves in the near future. Some changes will be added with the update of applications, and some will be added server-side with the update of Google Play Services.
