Earthquakes are really powerful natural disasters that can cause a lot of damage. If you’re not ready for one, it can be really bad. To help people in India get ready for earthquakes, Google is making their Earthquake Alerts System available on Android phones.
This feature uses a special part inside your Android phone to detect shaking, like what happens during an earthquake. It works on phones with Android version 5 or higher. When your phone is plugged in and charging, it can sense the start of an earthquake-like shaking. The phone then sends this information to Google’s servers, which will send you a warning on your phone. Depending on how fast your internet connection is, you might have a few extra seconds to prepare and stay safe if an earthquake is coming.
