5 of the most important pieces of news presented at the google i/o 2021 event

We already know that those of the big G always present good news at the Google I/O developer event, and in this 2021 edition, it was no exception.

During the last few days, there has been quite a bit of fabric to cut, and below we have the summary of highlights in this edition in different areas.

First of all, Android 12

The interface of Android mobiles will be having interesting changes in the area of icons and notifications since Material You has arrived, a new design that lets you see larger buttons and notifications with animations and colors that change.

In addition to the above, this enhanced interface will be available in the web versions, apps, Android, and hardware.

Google's web tool to detect skin problems

Using the mobile camera you can take 3 photographs for the artificial intelligence of this tool to detect problems or infections in areas such as hair, nails, or skin. When taking the photos, you will have to answer some questions related to symptoms and skin condition, and that is where AI will look among a list of 288 conditions to give the possible result.

This feature, although already introduced, will not be available until the end of the year, when the pilot is launched.

Initially launched on Pixels mobiles, the Locked Folder tool will allow you to hide photos so that they don't appear visible in the app or any other app. To be able to access them, simply enter the fingerprint or password and the content will be available. Without a doubt, a really useful tool.

Google Maps and its new features

When it comes to Google Maps, we find improvements in the Live View app to navigate the app in real-time thanks to augmented reality. Thanks to this, you will be able to have quick information about the congestion of restaurants and shops, their reviews and photos. The same will happen at airports and shopping malls.

Likewise, Live View will provide better details in known and constantly used locations, as well as better labels on streets with complex information, such as sidewalks and pedestrian crossings.
