Among the newly introduced features, the first on the list is improved data control and transparency. Google has unveiled an update for its Android operating system that allows users to better control location sharing through apps installed on their devices.

"Starting with location data, you will be informed in permission requests when an app shares your information with third-parties for advertising purposes," Jen Fitzpatrick, senior vice president of core systems and experiences, said.
