Android going a step ahead to Iphones updating to new earthquake detecting function features
Beginning around 2020, Android phones will support fundamental seismic tremor identification, leveraging the accelerometer to help create a network for early warning and tremor recognition. This functionality was tested yesterday during an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.1 near San Jose, California, and it seems to have gone off without a hitch.
Google’s vice president of design for Android, Dave Burke, posted a photo that perfectly captured the image of a large number of Android phones detecting the earthquake before the shock waves struck. Look underneath it. This geographic capability was also evident in posts made by users of online entertainment, as numerous people mentioned receiving earthquake alerts on their Android phones five to ten seconds before they felt the waves. Although it may not seem like much time, it provides people with a few seconds to find cover.
Curiously, several Twitter users noticed that while iPhones received the warning later than Androids, Android users saw it sooner. The tremor location network on Android had previously sent an early warning. During a tremor in the Philippines last year, the framework also had the possibility of sending out early warnings. In one way or another, this most recent shudder enabled another notable tech display.
You must enable this on your Android phone. You can then take the necessary action by selecting Settings > Security and emergencies > Seismic earthquake warnings. However, not all countries have access to this, so for more information, see Google’s support page.
