The new Google Pixel 2 was introduced this month, and, as it could not be otherwise, the terminals for this 2017 and 2018 of the American company we liked a lot, especially for its software section, which is clearly the most remarkable from them.
These brought many new features, such as greater integration with Google Home, or as “Now Playing”, an addition is that the Google Pixel 2 will teach you what song is playing on the site you are, without having to unlock the terminal or opening Shazam for it. And, now, the company has stated that this will not be detrimental to the battery.
Now Playing will not eat the battery of your Pixel 2
That’s right, one of the most top features of the new terminals of the company will go completely unnoticed, even in relation to autonomy.
As we have already said, Now Playing is a service that works at all times on the mobile – even with this blocked – and that detects the song that is sounding at that very moment to show you his name, everything a tip when you go party or You go to a bar to take a pint and you like the music that is playing.
Miraculously and against all odds, Google has found a way for this new feature to be energy efficient, thanks to a technology already in the Samsung Galaxy SII and the Nexus One, called AmbientSense. And, of course, if the energy efficiency was good on a mobile with 1,450 mAh of battery, imagine in one with 3,450 mAh.
This technology works in two ways, on the one hand, on the server, which sends and receives information when it is needed, and, on the other hand, autonomously, thanks to a database stored locally, which will do that the energy expenditure is minimal.
