Android to roll out features like Text Message Editing, Instant Hotspot and more


Google has given several new updates to the Android operating system that activate interesting features. First of all, the feature of editing messages sent through Messages. Messages that have been sent can be edited by users as long as they are still within 15 minutes. This feature can be used because Messages uses the RCS protocol.

Next, the Instant Hotspot feature should allow an Android device to be automatically used on a Chromebook or Android tablet without having to enter a password. You can also transfer an ongoing Google Meet teleconference session to any nearby personal device. For example, a call starts from the web version but is connected on the phone quickly without the call having to be turned off first.

Additionally, widgets for the new Google Home could roll out to Public Preview users. Through widgets, connected devices (IoT) can be quickly controlled through widgets without having to open an application or menu on the Android notification tray. On Wear OS, support for more non-cash payments is also provided on smartwatches. Control of IoT devices directly on Wear OS is also added via new watch face shortcuts.

Finally, Android now supports digital keys for some Mini cars and will later support Mercedes-Benz and Polestar shortly. We have yet to confirm other details or when it will arrive in Malaysia. Hopefully, everything goes well for Google.
