In this February version, one of the new features that has been incorporated is a notification cooldown. This consists of the volume of notifications is reducing progressively as soon as you receive more than one of the same application. This new feature can be applied to all notifications, to none, or to those that correspond to conversations. And that last point is where Android has given us joy, since the noise that accumulates when someone fills your phone with messages in certain messaging apps is usually quite annoying.

With this type of thing, Google once again shows that, sometimes, the best news is the simplest. Another new feature incorporated is a setting that allows you to control the keyboard’s haptic system to, for example, make a global configuration for all apps without having to go application by application. That way, while you are typing you will not receive the tone, which is usually quite annoying. It may seem like an unimportant novelty, but the interesting thing is that the disconnection, as we indicated, works in a general way.

That means that you won’t have to disable it in all applications and that this setting available in the Android options menu It will overlap anyone in the apps. It may be a good feature to take into account in the future in search of the convenience that Google always bets on. Another addition is a system that allows partial screen sharing. With this new feature, it is possible to specify which application is going to be shared and thus not have to share the entire screen globally.
