Google Wants to Bring iPhone X Face ID-Like Feature to Android

Google wants phones that will launch with Android Q out of the box to feature Apple-like facial recognition systems, so the company is currently developing the necessary framework to support this feature.

Cupertino, on the other hand, was very committed to its facial recognition system, so the company used a complex approach that relied on a mix of components to achieve higher accuracy.
