Last week, Google announced multiple new enhancements to Android’s branding. The branding enhancement includes logo makeover. The logo looks a little more modern, 3Dish. And also Google says that the colors of the logo matches overall color palette of Google. The announcement also talked about new features that are coming to Android. Couple of features that stood out to me are assistant at a glance widget. So it’s a widget that is AI enabled and gives you relevant information as you look at your phone. And Google Wallets on Android phone also gets a new feature called photo import where you can simply take a photo of a pass like a library card or something and along with the QR the device will store a digital version of that pass so that you can quickly pull it out when you need to.
