Top Android 10 features you should know about

As mentioned above, the latest Android OS brings a system-wide dark theme. Google has also revealed that the dark theme feature of Android 10 will help conserve your phone’s battery life (up to a certain extent). The search giant has also improved the smart reply feature, which now works across all messaging apps. It now suggests actions like opening address on Google Maps and opening video link on YouTube.

Android 10 also improves the gesture navigation first introduced with Android Pie last year. The pill is now smaller and Google has gotten rid of the back button. The back is now replaced with swipe from the edge of the display. Google has also introduced peak as a new gesture to open left swipe menu but the interface has not won the hearts of every user. Digital Wellbeing has also been enhanced and comes integrated with Family Link.

Apart from these, Google has also enhanced security and privacy with Android 10. So, users can now let apps collect location data only when they are using them. There are also more options under the Privacy section and security updates will be rolled out directly via Google Play system updates. Lastly, there is a Live Caption feature as well, which automatically caption’s videos, podcasts and audio messages across any app. This Android 10 feature is truly useful and cool too.
