Earlier this month, Google revealed its updated design language for the Android logo ahead of the Android 10 release. In addition to elevating the bugdroid (or at least its head) to the logo itself, new typography for the "android" text was also shown off. As part of today's big push to update the various Android sites, the logos for Android TV, Android Auto, and Android One have all been updated to match those previous changes.

We've been tracking developments with Motorola's Android One phones in the pipeline. One of them is the Motorola One Action, a phone with a 21:9 full HD display with "hole-punched" selfie camera, three rear cameras — including a wide-angle "Action Cam" — a mid-range Samsung Exynos processor, and various memory configurations.

Google likely to enable Call Screen on Android One phones by Motorola and Nokia

Google has been taking the fight against call spam pretty seriously these days. Things started back in 2016 with a (literal) big red warning sign and have progressed to formal verification of callers. Also joining the act last year was Call Screen, a Pixel exclusive answering system that removes any reason to directly interact with the spammers.
