Report: Google will finally bring a native Face ID-like feature to Android

Apple’s Face ID reinvented the way we unlock, log in, and pay in our smartphones. Even today, Apple’s Face ID is the most reliable and secure facial authentication available on a smartphone. Following Face ID’s launch, few Android OEMs implemented their own face unlock system since Android OS didn’t have native support. This situation is going to change as Google is going to include native face unlock system in the upcoming version of Android. XDA-Developers yesterday reported that it noticed several strings and multiple methods, classes, and fields related to facial recognition in the framework, SystemUI, and Settings APKs in the leaked AOSP build of Android Q.

With this new support coming in Android Q, Android OEMs will be able to easily design devices with face unlock feature with minimal work.
