Using the latest Google mobile operating system is as easy as pie when you know where the best bits are – Things reveal the most delicate slices so you can get more from your phone.
Find your way
Try gesture navigation: Android 9 Pie keeps your traditional navigation buttons (back, home, overview), but only by default. We recommend that you change them for the new gesture. Into the Settings, go to System then gestures and turn on Drag home & # 39; button. The back arrow will now be contextual, showing only when relevant. The home button will be a flat pill, but it works the same way as before.
Use the new overview: In Gathering, gestures increase speed and fluidity faster. Scroll up the home button to see large previews of open applications such as iOS. Drag / move the left or right previews to navigate and touch an app to expand it.
Get apps: Also, in Overview, you'll see shortcuts for commonly used apps at the bottom of the screen, along with a search bar. To access the application drawer, drag / drop this panel. The new home button also allows you to quickly switch between two applications by right clicking on it. This means you can jump quickly between, say, Chrome and Gmail, without using Overview. Want to kill an app? Drag up preview.
Screen rotation control: In "Pie", you can disable automatic display display. But the new operating system adds a custom-spin knob to the navigation bar when rotation is possible. This will lock your device to the other direction until the button is pressed again, or if the auto reactivation is rotated.
Connect an app: App-pinning is not new, but now it's simpler. Open Settings and below "Security & location" go to AdvancedTouch "Screen Fit" and turn it on. In the Overview, touch the app icon and "PIN" to lock the device in that app. Hold the back and back buttons to fix them. In Settings, "Block device when unzipping" will stop someone wearing the device.
Take a screenshot: You can still make a screenshot in the usual way by keeping power and low volume. But also Pie offers a simpler way: hold down the power button until a popup menu appears, and then tap Screen Capture.
Edit screenshot: When editing, use the pull handles to crop the screen image. You can also capture the image inside the cropping frame. Below this area, you will get pen and marker tools with a range of colors and deactivation / recovery buttons if you make a horrible mess when scribbling.
Improve battery life: If it's not already, go ahead Settings > Battery > Adaptive Battery and turn on "Use adaptive batteries". Over time, your device suits your usage patterns. Applications requiring more power are prioritized.
Manage brightness: Enable adaptive brightness in Settings > Display and your device will try to change the brightness settings to suit the environment. Manually adjusts "Quick Settings" and will then be taken into account when automatic changes are made.
get well as soon as possible
Frequent user ?: Into the Settings > "Digital Well-being", the dashboard describes the general use of your device for this day, along with the number of unblocks and notifications received. Touch the graph to show you in per-app numbers and see how often Android was with your gloves.
Learn to stop: On DashboardTouch "Wind Down". Turn on the function and define a period when it will be active. Enable gray colors to make the screen look less appealing when it's time to go to bed and use it Do not bother & # 39;.
Set a time limit for the app: touch "No Stopwatch" to display a timer menu and to define a maximum amount of daily use for any application. When the allocation is up, the icon will be gray until midnight.
Lock lock time: If you get sick from an app that alerts you with notifications, hold down one, and then turn off notifications. Also, in Settings, go to Apps & Notifications> Notifications to see and disable notifications from apps that have recently submitted one.
Choose the best bits: If you do not want to completely block an application's communication with you entirely, tap the "info" button. When the panel loads, touch the "notifications". You can then decide what types of notifications the app can send so you only get the ones you want.
