Google introduced a lot of changes with Android 10, ranging from privacy changes to branding changes. Now that Google has officially released Android 10, it has quickly landed on Pixel smartphones.

The update of Android 10 will be done soon with new devices. Google has been very busy with this version of Android and has taken its time to release it. As expected, Android 10 is packed with cool features like smart responses, system dark mode, and more. In this article, we are going to share a list of the best features of Android 10 2019.

Android 10: 8 best features to know!

It should be noted that the list does not include the minor changes made by Google in the new operating system. It only includes the key features of Android 10 that are worth mentioning. So, let’s take a look at the list of the best features of Android 10 2019

Dark mode

Well, if you’ve been reading tech info for a while, then you should know that Google has been experimenting with a system-wide dark mode for some time now. So, with the Android 10 version, Google officially launched the system-wide dark mode. Android 10’s new dark mode can be enabled through the Quick Tile settings or using the Developer option.

Smart responses

Prior to Android 10, smart reply functionality was only limited to Google apps. However, Android 10 can now predict what you’ll say in response to a message. The good thing is that it will show you predictive answers on apps like WhatsApp, Messenger, etc. So, on Android 10, smart reply is supported on all messaging apps.

Sound amplifier

This is an audio feature added to the Android 10 operating system. The Android 10 sound booster allows users to adjust sound settings in different environments. For example, you can turn up the sound to make music audible in a noisy environment. Likewise, Sound Amplifier can also be used to filter out background noise and fine-tune the sound.

Focus mode

Focus mode is not a feature, but an extension of the Digital Wellbeing suite. As the name of the new feature suggests, Focus Mode will help you focus on the task at hand by eliminating notifications from apps and games. It’s kind of like a game mode, but it consumes less resources. So, focus mode is another best feature introduced in Android 10.

Bubbles

Are you missing Facebook Messenger’s chat head feature on other instant messaging apps? If so, then this new feature is added just for you. Bubbles is quite similar to chat heads that display circular notifications on the screen. However, Bubbles does not support instant messaging and social networking applications.

Wi-Fi sharing via QR codes

This new feature allows users to share WiFi credentials through QR codes. Huawei and Xiaomi smartphones have already benefited from this feature for a long time, and now is the time to switch to Android. This feature is quite easy to use and saves a lot of time. To share WiFi, users need to tap on WiFi network and click ‘Share’ button. In the sharing menu, select the QR code option. Once done, your friend should scan the QR code to access WiFi.

Live Caption

Well, this is another best feature that hearing impaired users will love. Android 10’s live capture feature adds subtitles to all videos played on the smartphone. What’s more interesting is that it doesn’t need an internet connection to generate the captions. However, the live captioning feature is not entirely perfect.

Play Store Security Updates

Yes, you read that right! Google has been experimenting with security updates through the Play Store for a long time now. Now with Android 10 you don’t have to wait for your carrier to approve the update because you can install security updates right from the Google Play Store. Just like app updates, security and privacy fixes can be sent directly to your phone from Google Play.
