Google Launches Android Earthquake Alerts System for Australia, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea Along With The Solomon Islands

The Android Earthquake Alerts System has been around for some time but has not been offered in our region. Today Google has launched the Android Earthquake Alerts System for Australia as well as some Pacific Islands, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea plus the Solomon Islands.
This particular free Android function detects earthquakes throughout the world and alerts a lot of people to them. Putting to use the accelerometers in active Android smartphones the equipment senses seismic events and after that alerts individuals making use of Google Search and specifically on the Android equipment itself.
The equipment feeds the result straightaway into Google Search to ensure that when persons search for earthquake or earthquake near me the end result will be visible together with all other relevant results. Those that do not wish to be given these alerts can easily turn it off in the phone settings.
• Be Aware: This alerts people when the earthquake has a magnitude as high as 4.5 or has an intensity level of 3 or 4 on the MMI scale. The alert is sent in conjunction with the distance of the earthquake’s epicentre. The alert makes use of the handset’s current volume, vibration, as well as Do Not Disturb configurations.
• Take Action: This is a full screen alert for earthquakes with a magnitude significantly greater than 4.5 or an intensity level of 5 and higher on the MMI scale. To ready the individual for such a big quake full screen information are shown, and the mobile phone plays a very loud sound– hopefully we never need to experience this one.
If you wish to be notified in the case of an earthquake head into the Settings of your Android Equipment. From there navigate to Location– > Location Services– > Earthquake Alerts. You may also see a demonstration of the alerts in here also. To find out more have a look at the video below or visit to the appropriate Google page.
Perhaps you never have to use it but this warning system may well come in useful. It’s terrific that Google has made it available it to Australia, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea and also the Solomon Islands.
