Some Android Devices Get a Lock Screen 'Ambient Mode'”

Product Manager of Google Assistant Arvind Chandrababu states that "the ultimate goal for proactive Assistant is to help you get things done faster, anticipate your needs and accomplish your tasks as quickly and as easily as possible".

Much like Pixel Stand, there's both a lockscreen that shows the time over a Google Photos slideshow, whenever wanted.

Google says that, for a device to support Ambient Mode, it must be running Android 8.1 or above and have the latest version of the Google search app installed.

First announced back at Google IO 2019, the feature is now appearing on select devices after Google debuted it on a few Lenovo Smart Displays.

San Francisco: Google's quietly rolled out its Ambient Mode for Assistant - which turns an Android device into a smart display while it's charging. This will activate the "Ambient Mode" of Google Assistant, although at the outset it lacks permissions to access all the functions.

But if you want to try this out right now, you might have to wait.

According to Chandrababu, the mode is "deeply integrated" into Android, so it will be available for all the Android devices soon.

The term smart display means your display will show up the calendar, weather, time, notifications, music control, reminders, smart home controls, and more. If you have an event coming up, a notification will be shown on-screen.

The report also reveals that it is available on Android 10 and you can enable it turning on the toggle for ambient mode by following this path: Open Google App Settings Assistant Phone Ambient mode. You can see it in action below. There's also a photo frame mode. At the point when it does, you'll get a notice to "see your photographs and individual updates".

Once users are done toying around with the activities, Ambient Mode will turn the phone into a digital photo frame.
