Covering malware trends in 2018, in its annual Android security report, Google has revealed that malware installed from Google Play grew by a 100 per cent previous year. According to Google's support site, Duplex has started rolling out to iOS and non-Pixel Android devices, as spotted by 9to5Google. Google might go the Apple way and limit an app to have location access to 'While the app is in use.' Other features like desktop mode for Android are expected to be introduced during the event. While this can be used by businesses to easily get their app onto consumer's phones directly from their website, it is often used by malicious third parties to install PHAs on user's devices. On the downside of things, APK updates need to be manually downloaded and they can only be installed on Android powered devices that have the "unknown sources" option enabled.
Before some of you get too excited, it's worth pointing out that the Google Phone app only works on certain Google-approved devices. That might seem high but that is 15% lower than the previous year.
After the call, Google Assistant will create an entry in the user's calendar and send her a confirmation email.
Previously, Google treated click-fraud apps as a mere Play Store policy violation. This change accounted for a lot of the total installations. That was down from 0.56 percent in 2017. The difference between the numbers does say a lot. Cooper is also the lead editor for Tech News Watch.
The search giant today said it has started broadly rolling out the service, which uses an nearly frighteningly realistic synthetic voice to make table reservations.
Many different Pixel statistics were also found in this report, which is fairly detailed in nature. Beyond that, Google ended up paying out more than $3 million in the Reward Program. Do you think Play Protect is helping protect against PHAs?
Whilst Android and Google couple of weeks ago disclosed Android Q, its next big OS version coming to smartphones later 2019.
