Stop Google from collecting your location data

Turning off location history on an Android cell phone doesn't keep Google from knowing where you've been. Such information is gathered in a few different ways for instance, when somebody utilizes Google Maps. To fully turn off the accumulation of location data, you have to sign into your Google record and after that explore to "Web and App Activity" under Activity controls. There you have the choice to turn the data off. This should be possible by means of the Google application on an Android cell phone or by utilizing the program on a PC. As indicated by Google, when Web and App Activity is turned on, a client's searches and action from other Google administrations are spared to their record in light of a legitimate concern for "better list items and proposals". Clients can see and erase their searches and browsing activity by visiting "My Activity" while signed into their Google account.

Android Pie is efficient with AI

Artificial Intelligence plays a big role in Android 9, the latest version of Google's mobile OS.

Not only this, but Adaptive Brightness and Adaptive Battery are two ways Android Pie uses AI to customise and improve a phone's performance. Adaptive Brightness learns with the adjustments to optimise power usage. Battery life has always been a major pain point for the smartphone user, so this implementation of AI will be welcome relief.
