On Tuesday, Google announced it is rolling out updates to six Android apps over the next couple of days.
These updates include the ability to schedule texts in the Messages app. Then, there is a Password Checkup feature that points you to compromised passwords so you can change them. It also includes a TalkBack screen reader update that enhances how visually impaired people interact with their devices.
Apart from these, Maps will get a full dark mode; Google Assistant will be accessible on locked devices; and Android Auto will have custom wallpapers.
These updates will improve the functionality and usability of the applications and enable users to have richer experiences.
However, they are only available to Android 9 upwards. So, if your device operates Android 8 and below, you won’t be able to access them.
You should know that these are rolling updates and won’t be available to all Android users immediately. So, frequently check Play Store to know when they are available.
