Google debuts new Private Compute features in ramp up of Android security also make the source code public for external audits.

Google outlined plans to improve Android security, A particular focus to Tackle memory problems -- such as corruption and buffer overflows -- is over half of the vulnerabilities impacting the operating system so that Google has provided a privacy-preserving bridge between Androids Private Compute Core and the cloud." Private Compute Core is an open-source platform that aims to isolate itself from other apps and the main operating system on an Android device to improve privacy and security. 

The new features are:

  • Live Caption: Captions added to media using on-device speech recognition
  • Now Playing: Machine learning (ML) algorithms able to recognize music playing nearby
  • Smart Reply: Suggests relevant responses based on the messaging and active conversations 

While these features, in themselves, aren't privacy-based, Google says that new functionality will be implemented with each Android release -- and each one brings the sandboxed Android area closer to completion. 

Each feature utilizes ML and to keep data gathered by them private and secure -- including speech records, environmental noise detection, and the context of conversations, should users enable it -- they will be processed in the Private Compute Core and will not be shared with other apps unless expressly permitted by the handset owner.
