Google announces new features for Android

Google has announced a bunch of new Android features, some of which are already available for users.

The digital car key functionality is now live on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, as well as the Samsung Galaxy S21, in select countries. It will only work with compatible BMW cars for now. There’s also Family Bell, which will alert you and your family when it’s time for important moments throughout the day. The alerts come via phone, home speaker, or smart display.

Three Google apps are getting new widgets. Auto-resetting of permissions for apps you haven’t used in a while will be available next month on Android 6.0 and later, through Google Play Services. Gboard is getting new Emoji Kitchen combinations.

Android Auto can be set to launch automatically when you connect your Android phone to your compatible car.
