Sony Provides API for LED Lighting on Smartphones #godevs

If you're the type of person who doesn't like to touch your smartphone for anything, this idea started by Sony can be a big help. The Japanese manufacturer aired a API that allows you to customize LED lighting on smartphones as each application needs it. That is, users of the Xperia line will be able to know in advance if the notification is urgent or need to trigger the device to check messages, emails or contacts coming from social networks.

If there is one thing that bothers us in the mobile era that we are susceptible to immediate contact all the time, of course certain notifications can be turned off, but most users choose not to. The point is that it would often be smart to use this pre-user notification feature and it seems that Sony has decided to reverse this idea. Which pleased me greatly, since if I knew beforehand what the smartphone is trying to tell me with a certain signal, I could check my email, or access my Google+, Twitter, or Hangouts account directly from my workstation, without touching the device.

Therefore, the idea of ??this API will allow developers to create richer interactions between applications and LED lamps. This way, the lights used to notify users may take on different colors depending on the type of information your Android wants to give you.

Devices supported by the notification bar lighting API:

  • Xperia SP
  • Xperia ZL
  • Xperia ZR
  • Xperia UL
  • Xperia A
  • Xperia U
  • Xperia L
  • Xperia S
  • Xperia SL
  • Xperia P
  • Xperia Sole
  • Xperia ion
  • Xperia acro HD
  • Xperia go
  • Xperia M
  • Xperia M dual

The API is still in an experimental stage, but it is well known that LED lighting rhythm can be customized according to touch, LED color, time between light pulses and various predefined dimming patterns. of this illumination.

Sony's initiative, as well as encouraging developers to interact with their apps with LED lamp features, offers users a more functional option and contributes to making our daily lives easier.
