11 Android 4.4 KitKat Hidden Features That You Should Know

Updated on

Just a few days ago, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) announced the all-new Nexus 5, manufactured by LG. This has been the most anticipated Android smartphone in a while, as it’s a flagship phone from Google and it comes with some high-end specs with a very low price tag. You can grab the 16GB variant of Nexus 5 for $349 and the 32GB variant for $399, and that too is carrier unlocked. However, apart from these exciting points, the phone comes with the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat.

The new version of Android comes with some amazing features, and power saving is one of them. As per Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), the Chrome browser, for example, will use 16% less power in KitKat compared to Jelly Bean. Apart from that, you can simply say “OK Google” from the home screen or in Google Now to launch voice search, send a text, get directions, or play a song. Quickoffice will also come pre-installed with KitKat. But we all know these features, right? How about learning some hidden Android 4.4 KitKat features that are not that known by everyone?

Android 4.4 KitKat’s hidden features

Here’s a YouTube video that will take you through these hidden features in Android 4.4, depicted on the Nexus 5 since right now KitKat is available for this phone only. Other devices will soon be getting the KitKat update, but they’ll have to wait.

When setting a wallpaper, you can finally set it to full screen without the need to crop a portion from it. Oh, and do you know there’s also a hidden easter egg in the Settings? (but we wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise, would we?). So go ahead and feast your eyes on this video. As usual, let us know what you think about this in the comments below.
