a few months away from ‘ last update Google has released version 4.6 of Clock one of the apps pre-installed on many Android devices, whether Nexus (or pixel) or built by third-party manufacturers. This update introduces small changes in various aspects of the application, starting with the functionalities.
We find the opportunity to continue to scroll the count of a stopwatch or timer even when the phone is reboot . It is one of those novelty of which will not notice the presence in 99% of cases of use, but which may be particularly convenient when, either because of a block, an update or other scenarios, there is found to having to restart your phone just as you are using the timer or stopwatch.
in addition to this we also find small interface changes, including the new name of the night mode, now called Screen Saver and the new icon representing the stylized Earth present in the clock section. Finally we find a new dedicated exclusively to Android 7.1 Nougat (and later in the future), or the ability to access the shortcuts to start the feature from the home . In this case it is an update that takes advantage of the new APIs in the latest version of Android, and, for this reason, will not work on older versions, even through the use of alternative launcher.
As usual you can check for updates to the Play Store or you can manually install the latest version of Clock by downloading the APK files available to this link .
