Update will make Android work better with clock, computer and more

That gadgets should be able to talk to each other may seem a matter of course, but this is not always the case. However, it is a prerequisite for the smart home and many other promises in technology development to be fulfilled.

Google’s new initiative, now announced at the CES show, takes off in the Fast Pair feature. It has been around since 2017 and should allow you to easily connect a pair of new headphones to your phone without any hassle. Yes, at least that’s the idea, although most people who have tried it have noticed that it is not always unproblematic.

Now, anyway, Fast Pair will also be expanded to smart home devices, cars, speakers and more so that you can quickly and easily get started with your new device. Chromebooks are also included and in the future you can set up a new Chromebook with your Android and in that way share information about your Google login and wifi password completely automatically with the new computer. Chromebooks should also be able to detect your new headphones and with built-in support for the smart home standard Matter in Android, Fast Pair is also expanded to a wide range of smart home products such as lamps, surveillance cameras and more.

Google has not forgotten watches either, because within a couple of months, Google says, you will be able to unlock your computer, phone or tablet with the watch, then just by being close to it. The mobile phone will also be easier to use as a car key for cars that support it, then without you even having to take the mobile phone out of your pocket.

Google also plans to make it easier for you to play things on one device while using another. Play a movie on the tablet when it rings on your phone and the headphones are connected directly to the phone so you can answer. Google will also introduce spatial sound that is adapted to how you move your head, just as Apple has been for some time.

So far Android, Chromebook and Wear OS, but Google is not limited to its own systems. They also work with partners and Windows computers are included in this. Samsung has, for example, a close collaboration with Microsoft and by expanding Fast Pair to Windows as well (in collaboration with Acer, HP and Intel), Google expects that you will be able to easily sync text messages, connect bluetooth accessories and other things also on Windows.

The new features are expected to be rolled out by Google during the year.
