Android 10 is the latest version of Android Operating System(OS) from Google, and we got it last year, September. But many of us are still not aware of all the amazing features that this OS comes with. Moreover, app developers are still testing this OS and trying to upgrade their apps to take advantage of the amazing functionalities that the OS offers. Although Pixel, Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 were the first phones to receive the new update, there are so many other smartphones in the market that have been updated with this new OS.

Android 10 Smartphones

Native support for foldable smartphones

Foldable smartphones are winning the heart of millions of Android fans and these phones need a different kind of OS. Android 10 is just the kind of OS these phones need. The OS provides full native support for these foldable smartphones making it easier for users to switch from folded to unfolded modes and vice versa without any delay.

Live Caption

People with hearing disabilities struggle to enjoy many contents played on various apps like Youtube and Facebook. To solve this problem, creators have designed Android 10 to create subtitles for all playable forms of content. They have named it Live Caption. You can activate Live Captions for audio, video, messages, podcasts and other playable contents and can even enjoy this feature offline, when you are not connected to the internet.

Gesture-Based Navigation

Android 10 recognises gestures like never before and its creators have slimmed down the navigation bar. The usual three-button features in the navigation bar are still there but now you can now swipe up from the bottom of your screen to go home, from left to right to go back rather than tapping a button. You may swipe up and hold to access all the recently opened apps. You may swipe diagonally from the right or left bottom of your screen and hold it to access Google Assistant which still has its own button on the home and multitasking screen. The OS replaces the back button with gesture-based navigation.These new gestures will help iPhones lovers transit from iOS to Android. To enjoy the ease of gesture based navigation you have to enable them in system settings.

Dark Mode

Activating dark mode helps you to save battery and enhances battery life. It provides better user experience in low light conditions while you are accessing various sites and apps. Android 10 provides users with a system-wide dark mode. You can have the entire system in a darker hue that is good for your eyes, particularly on OLED phones that have brighter screens. Just pull down the Quick Settings tile or access the display section in the phone’s settings. This feature gets automatically activated when your Android 10 phone switches to battery-saving mode. Initially this feature will likely be limited to Google’s own apps, such as Gmail, Calendar and Photos, but developers have an API for enabling dark themes in their apps as well.

Smart Reply

Smart Reply makes your life easier by allowing you to send some handy preset responses in Google Apps as well as third-party apps like Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger and Signal. This feature uses machine learning to suggest three short responses that might suit the incoming message. These responses may have various emojis like thumbs up, congratulations, Happy Birthday and many others. It may suggest opening up the Google Maps for the address sent by the sender. There’s 65 new emoji icons including new “gender inclusive” designs for haircuts, gym and the spa.

Enhanced Security

Google claims that they have made Android 10 more secure than its predecessors. To make it the most secure Android OS ever, they have added 50 functions that ensures your security and privacy. This version of Android gives users more control over how apps behave, collect user’s data and use the data. Now you have a location section in your phone’s privacy settings which give you more control over how you share your location data. With this functionality in action, now apps can only track your location only when you are using it. You also receive notification if an app is using your location data in the background. You also have the option to opt out of ads targeting you. The OS also patches more than 193 security vulnerabilities. It also reinforces restrictions against the use of shared objects that contain text relocations which poses the risk of app crashing. As a result, an app’s code must be loaded to  improve the security of the application as well as its load times.

Android Screen Casting

Android 10 eliminates the need of Chromecast, the device that helps you to broadcast your phone’s display to a larger screen, like your TV. It can broadcast as well as mirror your phone. Simply go to Quick Settings by dragging the menu down from the top of your phone’s display and tap on the Chrome setting. If you don’t see the setting there, install the Google Home App for Android. Open the App and tap on the Cast screen/audio from its menu and then select your chromecast.

Run apps side-by-side

Multitasking has become easier with Android 10 OS which allows apps to run side-by-side, one above the other. With this functionality you are able to display photos and videos, do your social networking, or multitask like a pro. But this feature is a bit too laggy when it comes to gaming. To use this feature, simply tap the Overview button at the bottom left of your screen and select the recently opened app you want to use. You can also double tap the Overview button to toggle between all the recently opened apps.

More visible Text and Images

Zoom in and out to see what’s on the screen to see more clearly or squeeze in more text onto the display. This feature works for most of the apps. To change the font size or object size use the Display Settings. But the default font size is good enough for comfortable viewing.

Now you can change volume settings independently

Android 10 gives you the freedom to change different types of audio—including ringtones, notifications, alarms, phone calls, and media separately. It also gives you a quick-and-easy shortcut. Simply tap the physical volume buttons on the side of your device to make the currently playing audio softer or louder. If no media is playing, pressing the volume up and down buttons will adjust your ringtone volume and a small box will pop up on the screen will appear, showing which volume setting is changing. There is a small arrow, tap it, and the box will expand to show multiple volume sliders at once. This makes your life easy.

Protect your privacy by locking phone borrowers inside one app

People in your house and your friends may sometimes need to use your phone to make a call or use an app. You never know if someone is planning to invade your private photo gallery or wants to defame you by posting something unwanted on your social media. But now you can lend your phone without worrying about a privacy breach by pinning only the app the borrower wants to use. Pinning one app means that you are restricting the borrower from using other apps on your phone until you remove the restriction by entering your screen lock code. Go to the Security menu and enable screen pinning. Then tap the Overview button at the bottom of the screen and you will see the app with a thumbtack like icon. Tap the icon to pin the app onto your screen. Peace of mind, isn’t it?
