Google Clock and Calculator apps have got new updates. These updates bring no new features to the apps, but consist of a shortcut in the overflow menu.
A few weeks ago, Google also released an update to the Clock app that allows Pixel phone owners to record custom alarm sounds through the Recorder app. You can do the same through the “Your sounds” option for any device other than Pixel. Additionally, the Google Clock app is now more compatible with tablets and larger screens.
A trend seen a lot in Google’s recent updates is that the company is optimizing its apps for tablets and larger screens. Of course, the Google Pixel tablet is just a few months away from launch, and Google is laying the groundwork now. The Discover app is one of the recent apps that got a three-column UI to be more compatible with tablets. More Google apps are expected to get a similar update ahead of the Pixel tablet launch.
