  • Publication number: 20190109927
    Abstract: In some implementations, a mobile device can be configured to monitor environmental, system and user events associated with the mobile device and/or a peer device. The occurrence of one or more events can trigger adjustments to system settings. The mobile device can be configured to keep frequently invoked applications up to date based on a forecast of predicted invocations by the user. In some implementations, the mobile device can receive push notifications associated with applications that indicate that new content is available for the applications to download. The mobile device can launch the applications associated with the push notifications in the background and download the new content. In some implementations, before running an application or communicating with a peer device, the mobile device can be configured to check energy and data budgets and environmental conditions of the mobile device and/or a peer device to ensure a high quality user experience.

  • Publication number: 20190089797
    Abstract: Modifying a notification on one client device can trigger the generation and transmission of a silent notification to another client device that is associated with the same user account. The silent notification can include instructions to query for and modify a similar notification, if present, on the other client device. Silent notifications that are undeliverable can be stored in offline storage and delivery can be reattempted at a later point in time.

  • Publication number: 20160358089
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for predicting a future context of a computing device. In some implementations, a context daemon can use historical context information to predict future events and/or context changes. For example, the context daemon can analyze historical context information to predict user sleep patterns, user exercise patterns, and/or other user activity. In some implementations, a context client can register a callback for a predicted future context. For example, the context client can request to be notified ten minutes in advance of a predicted event and/or context change. The context daemon can use the prediction to notify a context client in advance of the predicted event.
