Android 10: tips and tricks

Last September we were part of the official launch of Android 10, initially available worldwide for each owner of one of the Google Pixel phones.

The fact that this range of phones continues to guarantee the last update of the operating system, makes even the first generation of Pixel still accepted among mobile phone users, despite its somewhat outdated hardware.

So, whether you have the first Pixel in your possession, or the Pixel 3a, or you are going to buy the new Pixel 4, the software of handling be practically the same in all of them. That level of consistency between different generations only seems to be surpassed by Apple's iPhone with iOS 13.

Android 10 is the first full version of Google that does not have the name of a dessert or sweet. It is probably the best, since it is now a little easier to track what version you have without having to remember the name of some candy or cookies.

Google has focused on ensuring the best user experience, so that the new version gains usability and appearance. We review here all those intelligent functions and ways of use provided by Android 10 with our tricks and tips that we liked the most.

The latest update of Android presents a renewed design and new features. You can check our review here to see if Android 10 is worth installing on your terminal.

Dark mode

It is one of the main features of Android 10, and without a doubt, one of the easiest to activate. Dark modes have long existed in other phones, but Google has finally officially implemented it (known as Dark Theme) on Android 10, so that not all applications see them with a dark screen.

Vers that also does not obscure all Google applications. But since Pixel phones (and most other high-end Android phones) have OLED displays, the use of the dark mode is efficient with battery consumption, and not just a matter of aesthetics. The fewer bright pixels, the less energy to consume.

Go to Settings> Display> Dark theme to enable it. You also see a quick button on the drop-down screen.

Use the new navigation gestures

Android 10 has won integers with the adoption of gestures in navigation, replacing once and for all the navigation system composed of three buttons that appeared at the bottom, as well as the combined Android 9 Foot to slide, plunder and back button .

Although it sounds bad to say this, the full gestures are good, and they come to emulate the movements of iOS on the iPhone, but now with an improved experience, everything is said.

Vers that a swipe up allows you to return to the main Android screen; while an up and side slide takes you to an open application selector.

A swipe up from the home screen or up from another place takes you to the app drawer. Also a small swipe up from any lower corner, makes a call to Google Assistant.

Finally, while a swipe from any side of the screen horizontally allows you to go back (as it may be in web browsing), you can also slide your finger on the bottom bar of the screen to jump between applications.
