Google to Bring Samsung's Best Display Features to Android Pie


                  It's just few days ago Google officially launched Android Pie for the Google Pixel and Google Pixel 2. The latest Android version is having features like gesture navigation, a revamped Material Design theme, Digital Wellbeing, Slices, App Actions, and more. Now today  XDA developers has spotted a feature of the Android Pie from the source code ie wallpaper support in the Always on Display (AoD).
                Recall early  back  in 2016 Samsung introduced wallpapers to the Always-on Display (AoD) feature that lets pertinent info stay on the AMOLED screen at all times, even when the smartphone is locked. Through this option users can simply glance at the screen for the time, date, or notification info, instead  unlock the smartphone each time, but it drains some amount of battery capacity. Now it seems Google is adding support for the wallpaper feature on AoD screens, which was undoubtedly inspired by Samsung, but Google adds its own modifications like an always-listening feature which can automatically recognize what song is playing around, even offline.
 
             The Android Pie code spotted today has revealed that it will simply show a wallpaper for a minute and then cross-fade it into a black background. On the other hand,  Samsung even supports short GIF-animated images to be displayed on a locked screen. Apple does the same with iOS, sometimes even acquiring the apps or features that it then incorporates in the next iOS version. However, it seems Google’s always-on display feature will be as powerful as Samsung’s which has not only supported static wallpapers but also started supporting animated GIFs too.
