The main reason why fingerprint scanners are still not widely available in the Android-powered device is the lack of native support for fingerprint sensors in the mobile operating system of Google. But soon things can change.
knowledgeable sources at the upcoming conference Google I / O 2015 Internet Corporation today announced the support for fingerprint readers in the new operating system Android M. If this is true, then all the mobile applications can connect to a fingerprint scanner built device, and use it for authentication. For example, users can use it to confirm the purchases at online stores for authentication Wallet Google, for 1Password, Authy, Dropbox, OneDrive, Simplenote and any other applications and services that support the fingerprint sensor.
Many manufacturers of Android-devices in no hurry to install fingerprint scanners in their smartphones. But we’ll see more devices with fingerprint sensor, if Google will integrate their support in Android M.
Recall that in this year’s conference Google I / O 2015 will take place from 28 to 29 May. Venue – exhibition center Moscone Center, in San Francisco, Calif.
