5 Secret Android Functions 90% of Users Don’t Know About

Almost everybody if not all now has a completely indispensable smartphone in their pocket. However, despite this fact, there aren't many people out there who know about all the amazing things these gadgets are capable of.

I would like to tell you about 5 of the most intriguing features of Android


1. Control your smartphone with head movements

There are situations when you just have to use your device but your hands are otherwise occupied or wet or it's too cold outside to take your warm gloves off. Installing a free app called EVA Facial Mouse is a solution for this. After installing the app you'll be able to control your Android device with movements of your head.


2. Screen magnifier

People with bad eyesight often have no idea how much this function can help them. You will be able to zoom in on any part of the display just by tapping three times. Just go to Settings -> Accessibility -> Magnification.


3. Smartphone remote control

If you lose your smartphone, you can track it down and block it without losing your data via andriod.com/find. You have to first do this - go to Settings -> Security -> Device admin apps and check the boxes next to Android Device admin apps.

To remotely find, lock, or erase your data on your Android device, in case you misplace it, go to android.com/find and sign in to your Google Account. If your Google Account is logged in to more than one phone, click the lost phone at the top of the screen. The lost phone will receive a notification. On the map, you'll know the location of the phone is.


4. A secret game

Beginning with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Google puts a little secret present for users into all their devices. Many Android users do not know this. To find the secret game, first, go to Settings and choose About phone or About tablet. Rapidly tap 'Android version' several times, and when a small marshmallow appears on the screen, rapidly tap it again several times, and a special mini-game will open.


5. Text-to-speech

You cannot only read this article but you can also listen to it if you have an Android phone. So if you wish to hear incoming information, texts rather than see it, go to Settings -> System -> Accessibility and turn on the Text-to-Speech Output option. You will need mobile data or Wifi to install voice data to use the Text-to-Speech feature.
