Android 10 brought many new features and improvements, and if you just installed it on your device, we can guarantee you’ll enjoy exploring what’s fresh. You can now enable dark mode and change Android’s overall theme. This was something many people were waiting for. In addition, you can share Wi-Fi details with QR codes – your friend came by and wants to connect to your Wi-Fi, but you forgot the details. You can use this feature. Cool, right? These are just some of many great things Android 10 brought along.
Speaking of cool things, we should mention Smart Reply. While we did have a similar thing before, it was not the same. It was actually a feature called Quick reply. It allowed you to reply using the suggestions in the notification panel.
A smart reply is not the same and here is why. You now get suggestions that are far better than the ones offered with Quick replies. And not just that. You will also get suggested actions and you will get it all right there in the notifications panel.
For instance, a friend is asking you out to dinner. You will get suggested replies, like Yes, No, or Maybe. In addition, you can get suggested actions. For example, a shortcut for Google Maps to show you the direction to the restaurant. And that’s pretty cool.
When it comes to shortcuts, the one you will see the most is Google Maps. But in the future, it should also work with other apps.
To top it all, this feature is not only the feature you can use for the built-in messaging app. It works with other apps, such as WhatsApp, Messenger, Signal, and more.
The best part of it all is that you don’t have to turn this feature on. It’s there as a built-in option.
If you don’t like it for some reason, there is no way to turn it off. So, if you don’t want to use it, just don’t tap on it.
