Developers large and small have started updating their apps to take advantage of the operating system’s marquee capabilities. One of them is google that the iOS 15-related improvements you can expect from its apps.
The biggest change affects the way Gmail, Meet, Tasks, Maps, Home, and many other Google applications handle notifications. If you’ve enabled iOS 15’s new Focus Mode, Google says that prompts that don’t require your immediate attention will be forwarded to the Notification Center for you to work on later. Timely reminders like the one Google Maps sends you when you’re trying to navigate anywhere won’t be muted and you’ll see them as soon as they’re sent to you. Google says its goal is to make notifications “as relevant and timely as possible”. You’ll see these roll out into the company’s apps in the “weeks ahead”.
In the meantime, if you have an iPad, you can look forward to new Google Photos and YouTube Music widgets that take advantage of the extra screen space that Apple’s tablets offer. The company says it will be rolling these out in the coming weeks as well. Finally, Google Drive and YouTube Music offer new Spotlight integrations. You can use the tool to search for specific files and play a song directly on Google’s music streaming service. These enhancements are available today – although you will likely wish more apps to work with Spotlight this way.
