Google Play Protect features now available for the Play Store app

Google has unified and rebranded its Android security tech – meet Google Play Protect.

But Play Protect also watches apps as they run on phones and uses machine learning to detect unexpected behavior – when that occurs, you get a notification and the app gets the boot. The Verify Apps scanning feature which has always been tucked away, will now feature at the top of the Updates tab as a noticeable badge in the My Apps & Games section within the Play Store.

Tapping the "Play Protect" button that's now showing up for same in the Play Store's hamburger menu will take you over to the Play Protect settings page. We thought then it was simply a rebrand of the security features on Android but now we know it's more than that.

Interestingly, we found that if you disable Google Play Protect from the settings page, the card under "Updates" in the Play Store app disappears. Recently Google rolled out a "Made for India" app awards programme that seeks to get developers to build apps that are low on memory usage, consumes less data, works in patchy networks, and have content in local languages.

If you want to disable scanning, you can toggle on/off scanning, as well as, sending of unknown apps to Google.

"Starting today [July 21] in India, doing a search for many types of events on the Google mobile search app and mobile web will bring up a concise summary of events and activities from popular sites from across the web like BookMyShow.com, AllEvents.in, EventsHigh.com, and 10times.com", Google said in a statement.

For things like restaurant listings, you'll be able to choose from breakfast, lunch, and dinner options, and find watering holes in your area.
