Google improving integration between Android phones and tablets

0 21


It is well-known that Apple has better integration between its devices than any other brand. While Samsung has the second-best integration among its devices, it is still not as seamless or easy to use as Apple’s. Google is trying to bring the same level of integration among Android devices.

Google is building better integration between Android devices

Google has been testing for ‘Cross-Device Services’ over the past few years for integration between Android and Chrome OS devices. It looks like Google is finally developing more cross-device features for better integration between Android-based smartphones and tablets. Some of those features have been available on iPhones, iPads, and Macs have had for years. It was discovered by @AssembleDebug (via 9To5Google) that Google could rename the Cross-Device Services settings in Play Services (version 24.06.12) to ‘Devices & Sharing,’ and it has three features: Call Cast, Hotspot Sharing, and Wi-Fi Sharing.

All these three features are self-explanatory. Call Cast allows you to transfer an incoming/ongoing video or voice call from one Android device to another device that is logged into the same Google account. Hotspot Sharing allows you to automatically enable Wi-Fi Hotspot on one device from another device and then connect it to it automatically. With the Wi-Fi Sharing feature, you can get the Wi-Fi network password on one device from another device that is already linked to that Wi-Fi network.

Google has been building a feature called Device Groups that allows a user to link multiple devices to the same Google account and enable certain features between them. Earlier this year, Google merged its Nearby Share feature into Samsung’s Quick Share feature for seamless wireless file sharing.
