Today, Google gives us good news by announcing the international expansion of the system Android Earthquake Alerts
Android’s seismometer begins international expansion
Countries lucky to receive Android earthquake alerts are Greece Yes New Zealand. Now, Android device users will be able to receive an alert when an earthquake occurs in the area.

This Android earthquake alert will notify the user of the magnitude of the earthquake and how far you are from the epicenter. Moreover, when you open the notification, it will show you tips on how to stay protected.
