Google is getting rid of the ability to unlock your phone with Voice Match and the “Ok Google” command in a new update to the Google app further securing the system.

The search-engine giant has decided to limit the “Voice Match” unlock feature to only launch the Assistant interface on the lock screen instead of unlocking the Android device on the basis of voice match.

“Moto Z” and “Pixel XL” devices had already lost the functionality with the Google app’s 9.27 update.

With the 9.31 update, other devices that still had continued to have full voice unlocking powers, will also lose it, Engadget reported on Friday.

Previously, with an “Ok Google” command and question, the device would unlock the screen to the app concerned.

From here on users will have to unlock their devices to go beyond just personal results like Google Calendar, email, reminders and shopping lists.

Google had already chosen not to include the “Unlock with Voice Match” feature when it launched the “Pixel 3” and “Pixel 3XL”.

At the CES 2019, the company announced just days ago that it would also be doing away with the feature on all Android devices, the report said.

This step would safeguard phones from anybody, who could try to barge into the device on the basis of a similar voice or a recording of the user’s own voice.

For Google’s phone and tablet users, this will mean both a loss of functionality and a significant gain in terms of security, the report noted. (IANS)

Smartphone market in India is confused! A market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) on Monday crowned Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi with a market share of 29.7 per cent and placed Samsung in the second spot with a share of 23.9 per cent.

Earlier, two global research firms — Hong Kong-based Counterpoint Research and Singapore-based Canalys — in the end of July gave Samsung bigger or almost identical market share with Xiaomi in Q2 2018.

According to IDC’s latest “Quarterly Smartphone Tracker”, approximately one out of three smartphones sold in India was a Xiaomi device in Q2 2018.

The quarter also marked the first time a smartphone brand (Xiaomi) shipped nearly 10 million units within three months.

Xiaomi also continued to be the number one smartphone vendor in the online smartphone market with 55.6 per cent market share, for the seventh consecutive quarter, said the report.

“Our mission to deliver amazing products at honest pricing has changed people’s lives and started a new chapter in the mobile Internet era in India and I believe we will become an even bigger part of people’s lives,” said Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India.

According to IDC, four out of the top five smartphones in Q2 2018 were Xiaomi smartphones — Redmi 5A, Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi Note 5 and Redmi 5 — accounting for 26 per cent of overall smartphone shipments.

The Indian smartphone market saw an overall healthy growth of 20 per cent, with a total of 33.5 million units being shipped.
