  • Android 11 will have a new feature for interacting with your smartphone

    After Google released the first test build of Android 11, it turned out that the new version of the mobile OS contains many useful settings and features. One of them, codenamed Columbus, is designed to expand the user experience of gadget owners running a "green robot."

    Android 11 will have a new feature for interacting with your smartphone

    The innovation is the ability to launch various applications using a double-tap - but not on the display, but on the back cover of the gadget. Details on the operation of such a function are not yet known - presumably, we are talking about the joint use of an accelerometer and a gyroscope for “reading” touches to the device’s body.

    According to developers who have already tried Columbus in action, the new input method works even when using a case, although at this stage it’s worth adjusting the sensitivity of the sensors. It is reported that the function is active even when the display is off. According to rumors, with the release of Android 11, only users of smartphones in the Google Pixel line can take advantage of this unusual opportunity. The approximate dates for the mass distribution of the original option are unknown.
