With the onset of Winter around the corner, people in the North of India will be dreading the harmful pollution. Google is getting ready for the problem in its own unique manner by providing real-time smartphone updates on the AQI in each person's area.

The AQI reading tool in Google Discover, which will be accessible to users of Android and iPhone, is being tested by the firm. When you right swipe on the home screen of your Android phone, a card with the AQI reading will appear beneath the search option.

The Discover tab may be accessed using the Google app on iOS or Android devices; on the former, the app is downloaded automatically, while on the latter, it must be downloaded. The Discover card's settings are also customizable, enabling you to receive updates on sporting events and the local weather, which includes information on the AQI.

To learn more about the degree of pollution in your city, you may also press the AQI card. To view the AQI readings in your area, which are determined by the location access that the Google app on your phone has, you must swipe left if you have subscribed to numerous updates on Discover. Google has a practise of localising features according to trends and even, to some extent, the seasons. People may now use generative AI to get answers when they search on Google.

In fact, when you search for a topic or any update, Google gives you the option to an AI-powered overview for a search content. This feature is not available publicly and you have to sign up with Google to get the option in Search which is being offered to most people using Google services.
