The new sharing menu is much faster than the other legacy menus. The most important job of android 10 is to recommend contacts and apps for sharing. Time will tell whether Google actually fulfill this goal or not. If yes, then the third party developers will also need to update their apps to take advantage of this feature.

Android 10 comes up with an excellent feature called live caption. It provides you with the real-time captions experience like when someone is talking, and it all happens locally in your devices means no internet connection is required for any activity.
Live captions are very helpful for deaf & dumb peoples. You will be able to turn this feature under accessibility settings in your device.
The back button or a classic navigation feature is removed now in all-new Android 10 version. Alternatively, Android 10 includes a full set of gestures so that android users can experience beyond buttons, virtual or otherwise. It’s not a default setting in your device; you have to go into the settings option and choose new navigation options.
This feature is very similar to the iPhone, but the styling is a little different. The bar present at the bottom of the screen can be used to switch between the apps just like the iPhone.
Revamped Notification Controls
From the last couple of years, Google has been continuously working on the notification control system. This time Google has successfully dealt with the feature. In the previous android versions, you were not having any control on the notifications alerts of any app, but this time you have to select whether you want to customize notification alert for some app or not.
It means that when you swipe away notifications, you have to choose whether you silent the notification or alert the notification of this app. If you don’t like then press turn off notifications options and decide not to be bothered by the app ever again.

This one is best for using multitasking apps on your phone. It reminds us of Facebook messenger chats heads as it is a little similar to that. The Bubbles work like this:
When you receive any notification alert, a tiny circular bubble will appear on your screen to tap. For example: for a messaging app, a bubble will appear on your screen, and you can tap on the bubble notification to view a conversation thread or reply without disturbing the entire apps. Developers use Bubbles for notes, arrival time and calling too.
This is one of the amazing features of Android 10 that Google offers you. You can easily change the accent colour of your entire UI. The colours include blue (default), black, green, purple, cinnamon, ocean, and space, orchid.
These colours were found in the developer’s option of the first beta. And in the second beta, you have to find a new app appeared called Pixel Themes which gives the experience of new accent colour customization tools.
A Better Files Manager App
In the previous versions of Android, Google offered files app with no frills and affairs and even with no shortcuts. But this time it will give you a better experience of running and managing files via the app.
The new file app does not only have shortcuts, but it offers a revised UI with a universal search bar at the top of the screen and quick access to other apps. There is also a chance Google can make some changes in this app before launching, but it definitely gives you a better file managing experience than the previous one.
