Avocado – The new “Face Match” feature

On April 27th, 2018, Android Police had first noticed and predicted about a new upgrade with respect to the Google Assistant settings.
Well, one may wonder what is this new upgrade. Earlier, it was known as the “Face Match” feature. Currently, it is also known with the code name – Avocado.

What is this Avocado or Face Match feature?

After Apple’s Face ID came into existence, unlocking your phones with your Face was among the most widely asked features in any device. Android phones received this feature with the name – “Trusted Face”.

Unfortunately unlike Apple’s Face ID, the Trusted Face system faced a lot of criticism. This was due to the fact that the phones were being unlocked with just a normal photo/image of the person.
But rumour has it that Google is currently looking into another technique of facial recognition. Now this technique would be integrated with our very own Google Assistant.

News based on the coding part of the Avocado feature –

The code, suggests that the Face Match feature will collect metadata in the form of images as well as videos. Also, there is a separate page for ‘Face Match’ enrolment in the Assistant settings directory. Although there isn’t any official word regarding this matter.

Android police had said the following about this new found Face Match feature –
A new entry in the Assistant settings was added with the mysterious (and delicious) code name – Avocado. It doesn’t have much in the way of details, and the implementation is incredibly thin at this point.”

Further probing the code revealed that Avocado is reliant on ‘face detector dependencies‘ and a ‘happiness‘ index which apparently refers to a feature in Google’s Machine Learning API Kit for Face Detection.

The last code snippet directly ties this feature to the “Avocado” code-name as we cross-referenced “cGY”. Also, the only other reference is in the class for “AvocadoOnboarding.”
