2. New & Fantastic Way to Control Notifications
In the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, you’ll find new and fantastic ways to control notifications for various purposes such as for receiving SMS, calls, etc. This new operating system version adds a new feature to view and respond to messages directly from your lock screen. However, you can hide sensitive content for these notifications.
For fewer disruptions, you can turn on Priority mode via your device’s volume button so only certain people and notifications get through. Or schedule recurring downtime like 10 PM to 8 AM when only Priority notifications can get through.
This new version of the Android operating system also enables you to turn off or prioritize the notifications for individual applications in your smartphone.
3. Battery Saver & Other Battery Features
This operating system comes with the amazing battery saver feature which extends device use by up to 90 mins. When you plug in your smartphone to charge, it will show the estimated time left to fully charge your device.
In the battery settings, you can also find the estimated time left on your device before you need to charge again.
4. Android Smart Lock & Other Security Features
The new Android Smart Lock and other security features make the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system ultra-safe. New devices are coming with encryption automatically turned on facility to help protect data on lost or stolen devices.
Moreover, you can use the all-new Android Smart Lock to secure your phone or tablet by pairing it with a trusted device like your wearable or even your car.
5. Multiple Users to Share Device with Family and friends
Guys, it is the all-new feature in the new Android Lollipop operating system by which you can create multiple users on your phone to share the phone with limited access to data.
The most important benefit of the multi-user feature is that if you forget your phone, you still can call any of your friends (or access any of your messages, photos, etc.) by simply logging into another Android phone running Lollipop. Also perfect for families who want to share a phone, but not their stuff.
The guest user feature is the most beneficial and I really loved it a lot because if your friend or brother asks your phone to surf the Internet or for another purpose, you can give him access through the guest account so that he cannot see your personal stuff. So, with this guest user function, you can simply lend your smartphone to anybody without having to worry about your personal data.
6. Screen Pinning
It’s another exciting feature of Android 5.0 Lollipop in which the device owner can pin the screen area or specific content so another user can access just that content without messing with your other stuff.
7. Enhanced the Color Blind Capabilities
If you’re a color-blind person, then you’ll be happy to know about this feature of the Android 5.0 L operating system. In this new version of Android, the low vision and color blind capabilities have been enhanced.
In fact, you can boost the text contrast or invert colors to improve legibility. The display of Android L is highly adjustable so that you can adjust it to improve color differentiation.
8. Android L Supports 68+ Languages
Unlike the previous versions of the Android L operating system, it is now available in more than 68 languages around the world. 15 new language additions are as follows:
Basque, Bengali, Burmese, Chinese (Hong Kong), Galician, Icelandic, Kannada, Kyrgyz, Macedonian, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Sinhala, Tamil, Telugu.
So, these are the 8 new and most interesting features of Android 5.0 Lollipop you didn’t know or you might not found them in previous versions. Mostly, I loved the material design and multi-user features of the Android L operating system.
