Google starts pushing new features to Android 10 to enforce automation rules based on location and network
Google is currently pushing automated rules to some Android 10 devices, which can be triggered automatically according to certain conditions. For example, the user uses these rules to configure and then automatically switch the device to silent or vibrate mode when it reaches a specified location or connects to a specified network. These rules pushed by Google can refer to the user to modify or configure new rules. The rules support calling a variety of different conditions to trigger certain operations. For example, callable conditions include reaching a specified location, connecting to a network, or to a point in time, and these automated rules can help users improve efficiency.
The first device for receiving the rule push is the Pixel series of devices. Google may be thinking about testing on its own device first. After the test is completed, it will be pushed to other Android 10 devices. It is reasonable to say that as long as the device can upgrade to the latest version, the rules can be used. The following pictures are screenshots provided by users. From the screenshots, we can see that the current rules support mainly WiFi and location-triggered mobile phone modes.
As for the specific use of the rules, the main purpose is to improve the user’s use efficiency. Subsequent users should be able to use their imagination and configure according to their own needs, such as the phone can automatically adjust to silent mode after getting home.
