While security is a must for your smartphones, there is no denying that unlocking your phone every time you want to use it can get a tad frustrating. Google has realized that and is hoping to solve it with a feature called “on-body detection.”
The feature is a part of Android Lollipop, and was first spotted by the folks at Android Police. They have posted a bunch of screenshots that also explain how this feature works. In essence, this feature uses your smartphone’s accelerometer to determine where the phone is and accordingly decide if it needs to be locked or not.
So the first time you pick up the phone in the morning, you will need to unlock it. But as long as it is in your hands, pant pockets or your handbag, it will remain unlocked. The moment you set it down on a table, it will lock itself.
While it sounds like a boon for people who want the security of a pass code, but hate unlocking the phone every time they want to use it, there is a small catch. Since the feature uses the phone’s accelerometer to determine its position, it won’t be able to determine if someone else is holding your phone. So in essence, if you hand over your phone to someone, or if a pickpocket nicks it off you, the smartphone will remain unlocked.
The on-body detection seems to be an extension of Google’s Trusted Devices, Trusted Places, and Trusted Face features. According to the publication, the feature is being rolled out to certain Nexus users running the latest version of Android and Google’s Play Service app. As with most Google rollouts, it could take a while before it arrives on your phone, so be patient.
Android Lollipop has recieved its first proper incremental update of this year today. The Android 5.1 update brings a bunch of bug fixes and a number of new features. The new update is rolling out to all devices running stock Android Lollipop.
The Android 5.1 update brings support for multiple SIM. The feature will now be baked into the OS itself, instead of OEMs developing their own implementations. Another major feature that has been added is the new Device Protection. This will enable your stolen/lost Android device to remain locked until you sign in with Google account password. The device will remain locked even if someone resets your device to factory settings.
After the new update compatible devices like the Nexus 6 will support HD voice. Currently HD voice is supported only on selected telecom operators, hence all Nexus 6 owners may not be able to observe the difference. Devices with the new update will be able to join Wi-fi networks and pair bluetooth devices from quick settings as well.
The Android 5.1 update is an incremental update to Android 5.0 which was launched late last year with the new Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. Android 5.0 brought material design to the Android ecosystem and it was light enough to be used on smaller devices with 512MB of RAM. The new update should be available for all devices running stock Android 5.0, in due time, OEMs may follow suite.
