Many times we use a mobile phone from the factory, leaving us exposed only to features that are accessible or intuitive. However, there are a number of tricks that are not available with the naked eye, but once you know and understand, it seems necessary in your day.
My experience of using Android is very specific, and it always tries to get the latest versions I know knowing almost all the tricks. I recognize that all Android features do not make it useful, and less are those that offer customizations, but Finally, always learn some trick that will forever change your experience of use.
For me, these 8 tricks for Android changed the way I use a mobile device and connect with him. These are the little tricks I consider everyday (and if you know them), but somebody told me "but can you do that by phone?" Some are exclusive to Android, others are not, but are terribly useful.
Quick access to camera
I do not remember when Google implemented this feature on Android, but I do not remember my life without it. Double-tap the power button and access the camera. Simple, fast, immediate and daily use. There is no great complication, although it is very practical.
This is the feature of Android, so almost every mobile has. In Huawei, you double-press the Volume Down button (and is enabled from the camera application) while Xiaomi is usually disabled by default even though you can enable it in the MIUI settings.
Keep more space thanks to the clever delete of Google Photos and GO files
Since Android 8.0 Oreo is a feature of the system called smart storage, though Google Photos integrates into its previous version. The GO file application also makes it easy to free up space.
Clearing a Google photo will remove any photo that has more than 30 days of our mobile device, provided it has a backup in the cloud. This is especially useful for automatic deletion and do not worry about a message that tells us there is no remaining space.
If we go into Google Photos settings, we'll also have a button to directly delete all the photos that have already been backed up in the cloud. Photos and videos take up a lot of space on our mobile, and with this feature you can use the most storage space.
How to free space on your mobile device using the Google photo app
Let's say how you can free up space on your mobile device using a Google Photos web app that runs far less than the usual version.
Practical use of multiple task buttons
From Android 7.0, the multi-task button has received some interesting news. Like on many occasions, if you have a customization layer, you may not be available. Fortunately, these shortcuts usually work on most mobile devices.
- If you double-tap the multitasking button button, we will return to the previous application.
- If we are in the app and continue pressing the multiple task button, we will access the split window mode.
These shortcuts begin to disappear due to the rise of the gesture, but today are still very useful functions.
Do not disturb the schedule
Do not disturb the way is probably one of the best features that mobile phones have. With a simple touch, almost all calls and notifications are sent to your mobile device. Quick, easy and very useful.
If we go to device settings, we'll find that the way does not hinder it can be programmedFor example, you can indicate that from 10 am to 9 am the next day will automatically activate and deactivate or allow you to continue ringing before a call or message from your father, mother, son, sister or your partner. So if your phone rings at night, you know it's something important.
Change default applications
I've never considered this feature useful or important until I talk to friends or close relatives and I see that their mobile phones have not changed any default apps. In some cases comfort, while others are completely ignorant.
I recognize that I'm not someone who often changes predetermined apps or that I change everything. But for me it is necessary to change the default launcher Nova Launcher and Chrome via Samsung's internet.
Voice Assistant, New Phone
Voice commands have been with us for years, first with Google Now and later with Google's Assistant. These assistants promise to be one of the protagonists of the future of technology, and they become more advanced. Has not it ever happened to you to have access to the most advanced, is it simply what it is to win?
The same goes for Google's assistant who, despite such advanced technology, ends up using the simplest things. But what's the most? Calls and Messages:
- Call someone: Press and hold the start button to call someone.
- It can be a touch.
- Also phone number.
- Even local Google Maps. I can say "Call a Call," and your mobile phone will only take the phone number of that site from Google Maps and make a call.
- Sending messages It is very useful to send a message to WhatsApp without writing.
Connect a USB drive or any other accessory
The ability to attach additional equipment via USB is the advantage of Android, which we do not use very often, but to save it our lives daily. You can connect a keyboard, mouse or almost all standard USB accessories thanks to a USB OTG connector and a small adapter.
- It may be the most useful tool to connect Pendrive to save and transfer files. Exist flash memorywith a dual port so you can connect it to your cell phone and computer without any adapter type. They are useful and you can take them to the keyhole.
- Mobile phones with USB C 3.1 can be connected to a dongle to get an internet connection via Ethernet, HDMI output, and USB ports. This is not something that is compatible with all mobile phones but with which it works incredibly.
Send all content to your Chromecast
Chromecast is an absurdly inexpensive accessory that we love. Serves to send content to television, there are not many mysteries. But at the end of television is the door to content, so the simplicity of its virtue.
When you are in an app such as Netflix, YouTube or Spotify, a box will appear indicating that you can send the content. Click on it and it will appear on the screen. If you have a Google homepage, it will also appear in music or podcast applications for sound.
