Recently, Google has included a new feature on its Find My Device app for mobile devices this time with the character to display indoor maps of buildings, shopping centers etc. especially large ones. This simply implies that android users can trace down to the exact position of their mobile devices both inside and outside a building with this new feature in the app. This was however made possible through a long time research.
This new update seems to have emanated from user’s security need but actually it is an outcome of a long term research. Google has taken good time to study and record the formats of complex buildings, retail chains, air terminals, shopping centers,… name them. In alliance with your device location and active network connectivity, this feature is intended to function quite effectively.
Talking about research, big and small business outfits give the best they can to not just remain in business but also to become more impactful and relevant with time. Just like Google, the global education system is doing their best to harness every possible tool, strategy and innovation to elevate the everyday learning system.
This has no doubt informed the consistent change in the learning curriculum, learning system, time table, learning devices, project research and career choices; Infact, virtually every course of study is digital assisted.
Meanwhile, Google still needs to undertake further research to authenticate this new feature of Find My Device app. currently, a lot of not-too-impressive reviews have emerged since this new update, declining the potency of this app.
While some has dismissed the capacity to of this new app’s feature to locate a misplaced or lost device, some say, it can only work if the device is on and active, if the device location is on and if the device is connected to an internet service.
Meanwhile the entire reviews suggest that Google goes into further research to improve the user experience else. This does not seem nice to such a big business outfit. The principle behind the new feature is really cool but seems to be poorly implemented and therefore calls for further research.
