Realme talks about pre-installed apps, Google Feed, and more in new FAQ
Realme has been pumping out device after device this year with the latest of them being the Realme 7 series and the Realme Narzo 20 series.
Most devices offered by the company are some of the best picks in their respective price categories.
And speaking of the Realme 7 series, the company has been rolling out several updates in order to improve the camera experience on these devices.
Here’s a list of all the camera-focused changes, improvements, and fixes on the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro.
That said, the company also engages with its users through monthly FAQ sessions in order to provide users with the answers to some of the most asked questions.
In a previous FAQ post, the company had shared details regarding its Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0 skin which is currently available in beta form for the Realme X50 Pro and the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition.
Cut to now, Realme has answered some new questions via its latest episode 36 Community FAQ post.
This time around, the company has addressed non-Realme UI 2.0 related questions. Thus, if you were looking for more details regarding Android 11, you may have to wait until the company shares it later.
For starters, Realme has shed some light on why certain stock applications are not pre-installed on newer devices. Here’s what the company has to say about it:
Q. Some stock apps are not preinstalled in newer realme devices. Why?
A. Depending on the agreement between realme and Google, different devices may feature different system apps – and the OS has been adjusted accordingly to run as smooth.
Another question that many users are looking for an answer to is the availability of the Google Feed on other Realme phones. Currently, the Realme 7 comes with the Google Feed out-of-the-box.
Well, this is what Realme says about the situation:
Q. realme 7 comes with the Google Feed out of the box. Will this feature come to other existing realme devices?
A. This too depends on the agreement between realme and Google, and may vary depending on the device. Devices which do not currently have the Google Feed will not receive it with a future update.
So any hope that the Google Feed will be added via future updates to older models has now gone out of the window. But we can expect upcoming smartphones from the company to come with it.
One more important question that the company has responded to is the availability of an alternative to the banned Clean Master application for its devices in India.
Q. When will realme provide an official alternative for the removed Clean Master?
A. Our own official alternatives for the system cleaner and antivirus will be made available by the end of the year.
This means that users who are waiting for an official alternative to the Clean Master system cleaner and antivirus program will have to wait around a month or more.
Nonetheless, here are a few other questions and their respective answers:
Q. Are Air Gestures (or a realme version of these) going to come to realme devices?
A. No, they are not as an optimal implementation would depend on the hardware.
Q. Can we expect realme to implement randomized numbers for the keypad when unlocking the smartphone?
A. There currently is no plan, but we are considering this feature.
Q. Can all apps be resized to mini windows and floating windows on realme UI 2.0, or compatibility is limited?
A. Virtually all apps can be resized, and if we do encounter incompatibility with certain apps we will address them promptly.
As you can see, the company did shed some light on some important developments via this FAQ post. That said, if you are more interested in the details regarding the Android 11 update, you can keep an eye on our dedicated Realme UI 2.0 tracker.
