Five battery-saving Android features that will keep your phone alive

  Five battery-saving Android features that will keep your phone alive And how to adjust them. Tethered Save your battery to avoid phone-charging emergencies. Keeping your phone’s battery alive is a constant battle. To thwart misbehaving apps and excessive drain, Google has added a number of energy-saving features to Android over the past few years. Here’s how they work, and how to tweak the settings to fit your needs. Battery Saver stretches your charge when you need it most Back in Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google introduced a feature called “Battery Saver” to eke a bit more life out of your phone when it’s almost drained. When you enable Battery Saver mode, Android throttles your phone’s performance, limits background data usage, and reduces things like vibration in order to conserve juice. This makes your phone a bit less convenient to use—it’ll run slower and notifications may not come through—but that’s better than your phone being completely dead. Battery settings You can turn Battery Saver mode on and off from Settings > Battery. You can turn on Battery Saver mode at any time. Just head to Settings > Battery on your phone and flip on the Battery Saver switch. While you’re in the Battery settings, if you tap Battery Saver, you’ll also see an option to turn on this mode automatically when your phone reaches 15% or 5% battery. That way, when your device nears death, Android will attempt to stretch the battery as long as it can go before that final shutdown.

Twitter today announced an upcoming addition to its suite of mobile notifications. Namely, it will soon offer users personalized news updates, generated based on their interests.

Currently, Twitter offers news notifications, for those who want to be kept up-to-date on what’s happening around the world. Now the company is expanding on that with personalized updates. This could offer a better option for all those people — including me — who have opted out of news updates due to them cluttering up their phones with stuff they don’t find interesting.

These notifications would ping you with news based on the kinds of accounts you follow and things you tweet about. Tapping on one will take you to a curated page with related tweets and video on the topic, same as if you found the story on your Explore tab.

Google Photos' web version now behaves like a native app

  Google Photos' web version now behaves like a native app Not everyone can justify downloading the Google Photos app on their phone, and that just hasn't been an option on computers. There are still limitations to the web version. You can't see offline photos or receive push notifications (say, when the Assistant has produced a new edit). If those aren't deal-breakers, though, this should be a viable alternative when you can't (or just don't want to) install conventional software to manage your image library.

Similarly, you’ll also see curated events on the top of your timeline. These “Happening Now” panels are already used for live sports, but now Twitter is expanding that to include the same personalized news it proposes to notify you about: “At the top of your timeline, you’ll see news that’s relevant to you along with the surrounding Tweets and videos.”

More updates, to roll out in the coming months, put further emphasis on the site’s news credentials. Twitter is also updating its Explore tab to include topics instead of just content type — meaning you could potentially sort your tweets by entertainment, science…dare I hope for a “tech” tab?

At the moment, the greatest drawback of the basic Twitter timeline is the inability to sort tweets into different categories. If you follow certain accounts for news, and some for gossip, and others for humor, then it all gets jumbled together into a big tweet stew. That’s always been both a source of charm and mild frustration. But if the new Explore tab is actually in-depth enough, it’ll be more relevant for most users.

Personalized news notifications will roll out in the coming weeks, while the new Explore tab and Happening Now tweets will roll out in the coming months.
