Do Not Disturb Your Peace

Activate Voice Match

Go hands-free with “Hey Google” anywhere by enabling Voice Match. Train your phone to recognize your voice commands. 

Lock It Down

Security is key, so start by setting up a lock screen with a PIN, pattern, or password. It keeps your info safe and enables handy features like Google Pay. 

Extend Battery Life

Use power saving modes to make your battery last longer. Limit background activity and set auto-activation based on battery level. 

Save Maps for Offline

Avoid getting lost without service. Download offline map areas in Google Maps for navigation on the go. 

Go Dark

Flip on the system-wide dark theme in Android 10 or higher to dim your display and ease eye strain. Set automatic scheduling too. 

Digital Wellbeing

The Digital Wellbeing Suite tracks exactly how much time you spend tapping away on each app and allows you to set limits to tame your app usage. 

Let Autofill Do the Work

Save time entering passwords with Autofill services. Enable Google’s or try LastPass/Dashlane for seamless logins. 

Get a Grip on Rotation

Stop screen rotation from going rogue. Disable auto-rotate and tap the rotation button to switch views manually. 

Safely Sideload Apps

Try more apps from stores like Amazon or F-Droid. Enable “Unknown Sources” temporarily to sideload. 

Set Up Emergency SOS

Stay safe with Emergency SOS in Android 12. Call for help, share location, and configure video recording. 

Swipe to Text Faster

Up your typing game with swipe input on Gboard or SwiftKey. Just trace words to enter text quicker. 

Check Dismissed Notifications

Don’t lose notifications with the notification history! View recently dismissed ones in Android 11 or higher.
