An application is one of the most essential things today since most people are doing their daily tasks online. Most employees are conducting work-from-home since governments are implementing different restrictions.
Many companies are requiring their employees to use different kinds of Google apps to communicate with each other and finish their daily tasks. These apps can make your daily online activities much easier since they have almost all the functions you need to complete your online tasks.
Google app features on iOS
Maps and Search incognito gesture
Google Maps and Search allows users to swipe down or app on their avatar images to switch between their logged-in accounts. This capability is only available on iOS devices as of the moment. If you tap and hold the avatar instead of swiping, you toggle on incognito mode, so you can use the app without any of the activity being tracked or associated with your account. This works in both the main Google app and Google Maps on iOS.
Drive privacy screen
As of the moment, Google still doesn’t allow users to set up a biometric lock for many of its sensitive apps on Android. However, the tech giant company provides the privacy screen capability for Drive on iOS devices. The privacy screen allows you to switch away from Drive, either immediately, after 10 seconds, 1 minute, or 10 minutes.
Once you activate this feature, you need to use your Touch ID or your pin number to back to Drive after the preset timeout. This is a great capability that allows you to keep your account safe from anyone, including your friends or family members.
App multiple tabs
Right now, Android users are having a hard time using Chrome when they are searching multiple topis since they need to close the other one before they can look for the other topic. On the other hand, iOS users have this scenario pretty easily since they can conduct a new search or open another recommended article while keeping their current tabs, thanks to the app’s switcher button.
Incognito mode privacy
iOS apps can also be locked behind Touch ID. However, this activity is only available for incognito mode tabs after 15 minutes of inactivity. If you’ve started a search in incognito, you likely don’t want it to be tracked back to you, whether by Google’s algorithms or people who might have physical access to your device.
After you’ve switched away from this for 15 minutes, you either forgot about it or got side-tracked, so it’s only handy to see it locked and requiring your biometric authentication to show its content.
As of the moment, the tech giant company hasn’t confirmed if these features will be available on Android devices soon.
