For all Android smartphones equipped with Qualcomm processors, compatible with the new implementation of Google Play Services, an amazing novelty is on the way. More than ever, it will be extremely important to keep your smartphone updated.
This is because through the Google Play Store, software updates will be distributed that will increase the speed of the smartphone. Yes, the Play Store will be more than just an app and game store, providing updates from Qualcomm’s Neural Network API.
Faster phone with updates distributed through the Google Play Store
But, after all, what is a Neural Networks API? According to the tech giant, Android Neural Networks Application Programming Interface (NNAPI) was developed to perform operations with extensive use of computational resources for Machine learning On Android devices.
This API is available on all devices running Android 8.1 (API level 27) or later. In practical terms, they are complex algorithms that integrate different aspects and layers of the Android OS in order to simplify it.
Without the user’s knowledge, AI is in progress. The mechanisms, habits and usage patterns that the phone registers based on The entry User to speed up various tasks and this API is also updated periodically.
Android smartphone will be faster when upgraded
This hidden component which makes the system faster, even without the user being aware of it can now be updated in a simple, fast and accessible way for all compatible Android smartphones. The updates will arrive via the Google Play Store.
Thus, if the programmers implement some important change to the neural processing system, or any other important API update, the news will quickly reach the user of the device in question.
The move was announced by Qualcomm, which is also already using a similar app to maintain it Drivers GPU updates. Hence, through this same channel, the user will receive periodic reinforcement of these processing algorithms.
It is great news for Android users
So far only when purchasing a new smartphone, or receiving a general system update, has this component been updated. Qualcomm and Google now frequently provide us with Neural Network API updates.
By not having to wait for a general smartphone / tablet firmware update, improvements can be implemented once they are ready. Hence, they will arrive via the Google Play Store without the user having to worry about anything.
As Qualcomm points out, two of the services that greatly benefit from this API, and related improvements, are Google Maps and Google Assistant. In this way, users will be entitled to get more updates faster.
Finally, Qualcomm has not specified when to implement this update system, and only mentioned “later this year”.
