First you must know that we are in the era of technological revolution, with the recent development of 5G and the advances in AI (artificial intelligence) it is easy to tell that smartphone’s would serve us coffee in the coffee shop. Ironic right! But one day we would get the unexpected giving the latest technological advancement.

So here some important but unknown smart phone features you should know about.

1. Artificial Intelligence

Talking about artificial inteligence, we would focus on Google Pixel smart phone. Before 2016, AI and smartphones remained separate from one another. But thanks to Google’s acquisition of three AI firms and Motorola’s ATAP division. With the Pixel, You come closer to a smarter world where AI fits into your pocket.

Modern AI, such as that found in the Pixel, relies on a technology known as machine learning and this technology which was a result of one of Google’s recently acquired subsidiary called DeepMind. And that means a technology capable of outsmarting a human may now inhabit your pocket.

2. It Knows What You’re Talking About

Another Google Assistant feature worth mentioning is contextual processing. Older personal assistants work great for asking a single question. But they’re poor for continuing a dialog. Assistant closes the gap between a conversant AI and one-shot assistants by adding context to issues.

For example, if I ask Assistant for directions to the supermarket and then correct myself by saying “I meant to the nearest bank,” Assistant places that question within the context of the conversation. It then intuits that the user wants to issue a navigation correction. The process feels seamless and without the stutter of the previous generation of personal assistants.

To date, only a few Google products include Assistant. That’s the Pixel, Allo, and Google Home. A few other apps, such as the Photo app, include Assistant as a feature.

3. Facial Recognition

One of the overwhelming features in Google Pixel is its photo app. Once you snap a picture of friends, Google uploads your photos to the cloud, and its AI applies a facial recognition algorithm. Each and every person in your album can receive a tag (or name). You can search your database for all pictures of a specified individual.

But that also means Google keeps a catalog of not just your identity, but the identities of your friends (and random strangers who blundered into a shot).

4. Concierge Service

If getting access to a machine assistant wasn’t enough, Google also borrowed a feature from the Amazon Fire Phone: direct access to a human assistant. If your Pixel ever malfunctions or you just need some advice, a human operator can help with just the touch of a button.

5. The Hidden RGB LED Light

Among its unadvertised features, the Pixel throws in a secret LED for notifications. Users can enable this feature, which saves on both battery life and screen lifespan. To permit it, the user must navigate to Settings > Notifications and click on the gear icon in the upper-right side of the screen. Then enable the Pulse notification light. From then on, whenever users receive a notification, the LED
blinks.

6. Quick Switch

Note: the quick switch feature only works on android 6.0 Nougat.
Nougat allows you to switch back and forth between the two most recent apps by double tapping the recent app button—it works in split-screen or full-app mode.

7. Run apps side-by-side


This is for android users
One of the new features added in Android 7.0 Nougat is the option to run apps side-by-side or one above the other. This view comes in handy when you want to display photos, optimize your social networking, or multitask, although it’s a bit too laggy for gaming.
To set it up, tap the Overview button (the square icon below the screen) button, and choose which of your recently used apps you want to see. Then, hold and drag that app’s title bar to the top or left of the display. Finally, choose another open app to appear alongside or under it.

Meanwhile, here’s another related tip: Double-tap rather than single-tap the Overview button to quickly switch between the two apps you’ve been using most recently.

8. Change volume settings independently


Your device plays several different types of audio—including ring tones, notifications, alarms, phone calls, and media. If you’ve ever gone to the Settings menu, opened Sounds, and tapped Volume, you’ll have seen that you can use individual sliders to adjust these audio types individually.
However, Android gives you a quick-and-easy shortcut. Tap the physical volume buttons on the side of your device to make whatever’s currently playing softer or louder (if no media is playing, this action will adjust your ringtone volume). When you do, a small box will pop up on the screen, showing which volume setting is changing and how. On the side of that box, you should see a small arrow. Tap it, and the box will expand to show multiple volume sliders at once. This can save you a trip to Settings.

9. Bring back lost notifications


Accidentally swiped away one of the notifications that you wanted to read fully? Got a nagging sense that someone emailed you, but now you’re not sure? If you want to review all of your recent notifications on Android, you’re in luck. This ability is possible—though the option isn’t easy to find.

Tap and hold on an empty part of the home screen, and a screen-adjusting mode will pop up. Choose Widgets, and find the Settings shortcut. Drag this icon to an empty space on one of your home screens and drop it in place, and a list will automatically pop up. Choose Notification log from the list and tap the icon to open up Android’s notification history.
