The system provides near-instant information to Google Search. When people look up “earthquake” or “earthquake near me,” they will find relevant results, along with helpful resources on what to do after an earthquake. Users who do not wish to receive these alerts can turn this off in device settings. It was first introduced in New Zealand and Greece and is now available in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Philippines, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United States of America and Uzbekistan. On mobile devices, the Android Earthquake Alerts System displays two types of alerts, depending on the magnitude and intensity of the earthquake.

Android devices with active accelerometers are used by the earthquake alert system to find seismic activity. KARACHI: The “Android Earthquake Signals System,” which will automatically deliver early warning alerts to help people be prepared for an emergency, is being launched by Google in Pakistan. Using sensors in Android smartphones, it is a “free, useful” service that locates earthquakes all around the world and notifies users. The technology detects seismic activity by using the accelerometers in current Android devices. People are alerted via Search and immediately on their Android mobile device, respectively.

Highlights

  • Be Aware alerts people when earthquakes with a magnitude of 4.5 occur, or an intensity level of 3 or 4 on the MMI scale. The notification is sent along with the distance of the earthquake’s epicenter. The alert uses the phone’s current volume, vibration, and Do Not Disturb settings. Take Action is a full-screen alert for earthquakes with a magnitude higher than 4.5, or an intensity level of 5 and above on the MMI scale. To help people prepare for potential heavy shaking, full-screen instructions are shown and the phone plays a loud sound.
