Google's earthquake warning system came to the fore because it foretold the 5,9 magnitude earthquake that occurred in Düzce. Google Android Earthquake Warning System, which arouses curiosity again with the earthquakes in Kahramanmaraş and Hatay, can detect the shaking shortly beforehand using the accelerometer found in most Android smartphones and warns users.
Google developed the Android Earthquake Warning System and it can detect earthquakes and send alerts to Android users. With this system, users with an accelerometer Android phone can detect earthquakes.
For 4.5-magnitude earthquakes, the system sends two types of alerts, "Be Aware" and "Take Action", depending on the depth and magnitude of the earthquake.
The Android earthquake warning system takes advantage of the phone's existing technology, and works on all Android OS 5.0 and above phones with device location and "Earthquake Alerts" turned on. Users who do not want to receive early earthquake warnings can disable the "Earthquake Alerts" option in their device settings.
COUNTRIES USING THE EARTHQUAKE WARNING SYSTEM
Google uses this system in Turkey, as well as in the Philippines, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
