Android P Could Introduce Automatic Color Adjustments To The Pixel 2

Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has been approached by Oracle, and they have been informed that Google is unethically syphoning off data from Android users' phone, and spying on them. The company has already launched this Google News app for Android, but, now the update has officially rolled out to iOS platform replacing the old Google Play Newsstand app. Users can get the new Google News app on the Apple's App Store here.

The letter also plucks out the kind of detail that would only be known to the most dedicated reader of terms-of-service - that Google makes demographic inferences from location data (it's almost 700 words into this policy document).

A gig of data now costs about $3.60-$4.50 a month. Instead of using the trio of buttons that have appeared on Android phones for years, users will navigate the operating system with a series of gestures and swiping motions. In its privacy policy, Google explicitly states that it collects information which includes the users' personal information, device information, log information and location information. Oracle added that the transfer of this information was eating into users' data allowance purchased from their telecoms providers-up to a gigabyte a month, which seems like quite a lot to go unnoticed. Nor will removing the SIM card stop it from happening.

Arguably the most significant upgrade is support for phones with dual rear-facing cameras, says Expert Reviews.

According to Oracle, Google is accessing information such as barometric pressure readings and coordinates, which could be used to work out whether someone is located outside or in a shopping centre. However, all the top articles in any particular section are streamlined in a stories (which Google calls it Full coverage) and autoplay videos format similar to the feed you notice on Instagram or Twitter.

Blumenthal and Markey said they asked Google CEO Sundar Pichai for answers, but received a response that raised further questions about their "characterization of basic consumer protection terms".

Speaking to News Corp Australia, Sims said the watchdog is "looking into" the claims.

That Oracle had come to Australia to do the presentation showed the value of the ACCC inquiry, he said.

Google said it was collecting phones' nearest cell tower locations because that would let it deliver messages faster; it denied retaining that location, and later disabled the "service".
