Apart from the arcade game Snake in its Google Maps app, Google has stepped up it’s April fools prank game and gone ahead to offer a cleaning app for your smartphone.
Only available on Android, Google is offering users a once in a life time opportunity to have an app that can actually clean the phone screen inside – out.
The new feature called Screen Cleaner claims to wipe out all the dirt and germs from your smartphone’s display. The company claims that the feature will eliminate dust, dirt, smudges, from your smartphone screen
The company has also released a video explaining about the new feature. Google has developed a smudge detector API which will identify the dirt and smudges on your phone’s screen. After detection, the dirt and whatnot are targeted via micromovements and removed.
The feature uses the phone’s vibrating motor and haptic controls to create macro vibrations which form a non-stick shield around the device to keep your smartphone clean and sparkling.
In order to use the feature make sure that you have the updated version of the app. Once you open the Files app, you will notice the Screen Cleaner option with the activate button. After clicking the activate button, the feature will get activated and the cleaning process commenced.
