The tenth version received a number of rather interesting innovations, how weighty they are, to judge consumers based on the needs in each case. For some, the innovations will not be significant, for some, the new parameters will be of genuine interest.
Consider some of the key features announced by the developer:
Added the ability to display the screen menu in black. We are talking about quickly turning on the dark mode in the settings, spreading globally to all sections of the menu and some applications. This mode may be of interest for aesthetic reasons, in order to relieve eye strain at a certain time of the day or to save energy on devices with OLED screens.
Recognizing text from Live Caption videos
When playing any video, it became possible to recognize the spoken text with its output to the screen. In other words, there is a translation of subtitles in real time. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? If, in reality, no restrictions are imposed on the Russian language, then this function opens up broad prospects and conveniences, for example: watching videos in a public place, without headphones, reading subtitles, learning English, watching thematic videos displayed on the screen text, assistance to bloggers, which consists in adding text to the video, if necessary, etc. It will also play an important role for people with reduced hearing.
For incoming messages, quick access is often used to respond through the notification curtain at the top of the screen. According to the developers, users will be offered a choice of popular short answers, selected in meaning, suitable for the received text message. The smartphone owner will have to click on the appropriate proposed answer and the forward button.
For those who like to use emojis, 65 new pictures have been added.
It has created an updated privacy menu located in the Settings section. It is more conveniently presented and grouped with information related to location data, access to geolocation, blocker of background applications, settings for displaying personalized ads and rejecting them, etc.
This is an interesting feature. It allows you to limit the work with a mobile phone and, probably, first of all it will interest parents who want to monitor the time that their child spends on the gadget. For example, a number of blocking functions are provided after a specified time or disconnecting notifications from specific online services.
