While beta of last week revealed a number of interesting functions in progress, the Google 9.72 application is a quieter version that actually hides some features, such as Reminders and Smart Tips at a glance. There are also some additions and errors with this update.
About APK Insight: In this 'APK Insight' publication, we have decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded into the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APKs, in the case of Android applications), we can see several lines of code within that suggestion about possible future characteristics. Keep in mind that Google may or may not send these features, and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect. However, we will try to enable those who are closer to finish, to show you how they will look if they are sent. With that in mind, keep reading.
New Google Lens icon
Speaking of lens, the Google 9.72 application updates the icon to offer more rounded corners and a new color scheme that provides better proportions to the four colors of Google. It is visible in the Assistant control pill and in the Recent menu.
Take a look
the new reminders and the Intelligent Auxiliary Power Tips to take a look are not yet available even though last week's update added them to the configuration. The Google 9.72 application hides the two new additions for the home screen widget.
Google search this week launched a new capricious weather card for Android. Version 9.72 has an error where that new search result is the only available way to see the forecast. The dedicated "application" that users could access previously from the home screen icon, by expanding the online search card or from A A Glance does not start.
The last action will only perform a search, and Google will possibly plan a similar revision of the material topic for this older application. As a result of this error, users can not access forecasts by hour, humidity or wind. This also disables the tabs for "Tomorrow" and "10 days", with the Wizard providing a basic replacement.
The 12-hour online graphic still works and can be scrolled. Google is likely to solve this problem before 9.72 enters the stable channel next week. Fortunately, the weather is still being updated in the Pixel block screen and in a look widget.
Google Podcasts: classification and suspension timer
Podcasts lists in Google Search now allow users to organize episodes by "Newer" or "Older first." This order is applied program by program, with the new function deployed through the server-side update instead of the Google 9.72 application specifically. The new filter icon is accessible to the right of "Available Episodes".
As we noted with version 9.58, Google Podcasts is working on an automatic shutdown timer. It can be accessed from the audio player, with users able to choose increments that start at 5 minutes and extend until the "End of the episode". Once configured, the user's scan touches "Start" to start. It is not active yet, but we have successfully enabled it with this version.
Google Assistant: Friends and family
Google Assistant already has a "Your People" feature in the settings. With version 9.72, we enable a renewal where users can add a person without having to enter through the Assistant UI.
"Your assistant helps you share and connect with the people in your life."
Best Apps: Now with video
How to update?
You can sign up For him Beta program of the Google application here or going to the Play Store listed in Android and moving towards the bottom. The latest beta version of the Google application is released immediately when it is available.
We do not publish APK files to download directly given the legal challenges associated with copyright and the possibility of removal. Meanwhile, that model is dangerous given Android app packages and Google Play dynamic delivery.
Thanks to JEB Decompiler, that some tears of APK Insight benefit from.
