Seven New Everyday Android Features Coming to Android 15

| Updated on 4 June 2024

Google has announced that they’re releasing seven new everyday Android features to its mobile operating system. These features include the ability to edit messages after they’re sent, easier ways to share hotspots, and more. 

Texting with RCS features on Android

Google will allow the users to edit their RCS messages even after they’re sent. This can be a good option for people who send a message on an impulse or you’ve made a typo and want to correct it. 

Well, to use this feature, users need to tap and hold a sent RCS message up to 15 minutes after it is sent. Now, you can edit the message and you’re good to go. 

Now, the instant hotspot is also coming to Google, which would allow users to connect their Android tablet or Chromebook to their phone’s hotspot with a single tap. Users won’t have to enter the password. Users can also switch their Google Meet sessions in mid-call if they need to move from their laptop to mobile. 

They have also introduced widgets for the Google Home app that can help users control the appliances right from the widgets. There is no need to open the Google Home app, users can change the temperature or manage their smart device right from the widgets. 

Wear OS also gets more ways to pay with Google Wallet, with PayPal as an option. Now, users can pay via their smartwatches without having to pull out their mobile phones. 

Digital car keys are also part of this Android update. They are now available for “select MINI models” and they’ll arrive for Mercedes Benz and Polestar cars soon. Users will be able to unlock and start their cars using their phones. 

Lastly, there are new Emoji Kitchen sticker combos rolling out soon. They may come with fun remixes like a disco ball and headphones. The new stickers would be available with the Gboard.
