Getting Android right makes the iPhone very wrong

Android is the best in announcements.

This week, Google (GOOGL) Widened the gap between Android and iOS This is when Android 11 was introduced. The new smartphone operating system makes it easy to manage the most annoying and intrusive thing about your phone.

Announcements on Android 11 are now grouped into three sections: Conversations, Announcements and Silent. By separating conversations – WhatsApp, Messenger, texts, DMs, etc. – it puts the most important things first and foremost.

Android 10 Please, you can achieve this by rearranging your messages. Google’s Artificial Intelligence assumes that when you drag your screen from top to bottom on Android 10, you should see your announcements in the order you received them, instead. It is often – but not always – texts and conversations. However, by splitting the dialogs, Android gets rid of a lot of AI guesses, which makes notification navigation easier.

But that’s not the best part of the Android 11 announcement update. Google has also created a new way to communicate with your friends and family, so you no longer have to hunt to retrieve the conversation you had when your friend sent you back. Chat bubbles are Android’s new way of making conversations more fluid.

Instead of sending dialog notifications to the top of your screen and hiding them in the notification bar, Android will overwrite your screen with a photo of your friend with a small bubble. The bubble will display the text of your friend’s announcements, and you can tap to expand or respond to the conversation. But, conveniently, it doesn’t leave the app you have, so you can watch that YouTube video of the water-skiing squirrel without any interruption.

It comes on top of all the other announcements that Android has already given us: you can put to sleep the notifications you want to see later, but not now. You can press a notification for a long time to manage the way the app turns you into an error – allowing you to receive “quiet” notifications that you can only see if you drag down the notification shadow

It said: Of course, this is very customizable and it gets complicated very quickly. Notifications have an appeal to the iPhone’s “on” or “off” (of course you can do that on Android too).

But notifications are the main way for many people to communicate with our phones. News alerts, text messages, your friend’s Instagram photos, dicto videos, YouTube subscriptions … all of these are disruptive to our day, and can be intrusive if not managed properly.

You may think you don’t need to watch that CNN alert right now (of course you do JK) – just put it to sleep. Or you can choose when you like by quietly turning off Facebook alerts. But every time your mom sends you an email from her mahjong group if you want … Android will make sure to let you know when she does.

Every year, Android updates and handles changes. Apple (AAPL), By contrast, it has never been bigger. In iOS 12, Apple finally lets people group announcements together – a long-awaited feature that puts all the app’s announcements in one pile. But they are all chronological. Without the notification bar, you will not be able to get a quick overview of why your iPhone is bothering you. Instead, you’ll have to look around to see which application has the point – or swipe from the top corner to see all your announcements.

Most annoyingly, iPhone owners have to swipe and then tap to reject private notifications (you can’t swipe them like you do on Android). This week, that obvious Android advantage is even better: if you reject a notification too quickly, Android has created a notification history setting that allows you to see every notification your phone receives – rejected or otherwise.

So, of course, there are Many, many reasons You may want to consider buying an iPhone on an Android phone. Announcements If you raise a wall, Android is the best solution to make your smartphone less intrusive into your day.
