The ‘ Ambient Mode ‘ of Google Assistant finally comes to smartphones. It mode, first unveiled at I / O 2019, transforms your Android smartphone or tablet into a smart display by displaying calendar data, current weather, updates, reminders, music controls, and smart home controls.
The Ambient Mode also transforms the screen of the phone into a digital photo frame that takes photos from Google Photos when users don’t use any of these apps.
For selecting Android phones running on Android 8.0 Oreo and above, this feature is available.
The idea is to make your mobile more useful by allowing you to see photos from Google, play music, power your smart home devices, and more while loading.
The functionality began rolling out to Sony Xperia, Nokia, Transsion, and Xiaomi devices, selecting Lenovo tablets running Android 8.1 or newer, as announced.
Google yesterday announced Ambient Mode via a Tweet and YouTube video rather than a blog post or press announcement.
It presents a proactive Google Assistant in the video clip for Android Ambient Mode, showing you your agenda for the day as well as shortcuts for setting alarms or controlling smart devices.
And when nothing really needs to be done, it can display the time in large letters that are very noticeable and even show off your pictures in a slideshow.
Where other devices may be getting Ambient Mode in the future is unclear, but the video does say that Ambient Mode is deeply integrated into Android and is not a stand-alone experience, so it may seem that it will be available on more Android devices soon.
