The smartphones play a very crucial role in everybody’s life, and we can’t deny it. We usually wake up with it and go to bed with it too. But, still, we don’t know that to what extent we can use our phones. So, here is the list of what all things we can probably do on a smartphone many of us don’t know.
1) Remote lock or If lost, wipe the phone
Your phone contains most of the stuff to make our lives easy. If, our phone got lost or goes missing all that information is out there in the hand of an anonymous person. But, don’t worry we can stop that. Now, you can enable Android Device Manager in Settings > Security > Device Administrators. Now, you can erase the phone if in case your phone is lost. So, you are sure that your data is now only secured within you and not somewhere else.
2) Use voice search even when the phone was off
With Google Assistant you can now unlock your phones with your voice command and not only that you can even use voice search even your phone’s locked or with the screen off. You just have to tick on Trusted Voice from the security. Also, you have to go to Google settings > Search and Now > Voice > OK Google Detection > Click Always on.
3) Identify the song
If you are having trouble in the identification of the song or song lyrics, don’t worry you just need your smartphone. Just go to your Google Play Store and search for MusixMatch. Hola! Now you are not a novice anymore in case of songs.
4) Convert into a video-game console
Nowadays, many phones have an immense power for hardcore gaming, but that isn’t enough. Sometimes, good sound system and a big screen are required too.
