Google Experimenting Always On Display Feature For Pixel, Pixel XL
Pixel XL Pixels and smartphones are very emblematic devices formidable, but Google has not made the most of its AMOLED screen. Now it looks like the company intends to change that by adding support for a Always-on Ambient screen.
XDA Developers of people have discovered function tests Always active in the APK user interface system for the third draft version for Android developers O. lines of code seem to show something called “snoozing” which could be the internal code name For the Google display environment.
This should not be confused with the battery saving feature that has the same name and was first introduced by Google through Android 6.0 marshmallow.
The code suggests that the Always On Screen environment can be turned on or off on Pixel phones. Of course, this will only work if Google officially launches updated O. Android
One important thing to keep in mind is that the new Always On feature is in “tuner_pref.xml”. This means that it is still a experimental feature hidden in pixel settings and Pixel Xl, as noted Android Authority.
XDA developers have actually tried to activate the Always On function to see if it is already functional. Unfortunately it was simply not accessible. It is possible that the experimental nature of the function itself prevents people from trying.
Since this is an experimental feature for now, Google could keep it hidden or even have it completely removed altogether.
It could not even be part of the final version of Android O. Google could have the environment Always On screen screen removed on Android O, and simply make the feature available in another version of the Android operating system.
There is no way to know what Google is going to do with it at this stage, so it is best to wait for an official announcement is. It is also good to know that Google is at least experienced and one day could be a basic element of the range of devices in the company.
That said, Google could be one of the new title features to their phones and Pixel Pixel XL when they launch Android O. they keep current users satisfied with their devices for almost years.
It would also be great news for those who were disappointed that Pixel and Pixel XL did not come with the always on display environmental feature.
The introduction of the function could also convince some people to finally buy a pixel phone, but this is very unlikely at this time, because everyone is already talking about Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
Always active Sample environment is not really new. Samsung and LG have made technology popular with their own smartphones, but Nokia has made for the first time with its line of Lumia smartphones years ago.
In addition, the first manufacturer to put this feature on an Android device with Motorola was actually its 2013 Moto X. At that time, it called the active display feature for notifications.
