Settings Search Bar

Settings now has its own dedicated search bar. While this may seem like a very minor addition, it’s actually a great timesaver when you know exactly what you’re after. For example, let’s say you want to change your network settings, but you don’t know where to look. Just head to settings and search for “network” and you’ll find what you need almost instantly. This is one of many neat little features in Lollipop that really helps to increase efficiency in a simple and intuitive way.
Swipe Twice For New Notification Bar
Lollipop comes with a new notification bar - simply swipe down once from the top of your screen to look at your notifications and swipe down once more to access your quick settings. As in previous versions, it’s still possible to access your quick settings with a little more speed by swiping down with two fingers instead of one. From here you can access all the usual and familiar Android features, with a few new options introduced with the new OS, such as flashlight.
Android finally has its own built in flashlight button, which can be found in your notification screen. This feature, which has been on iOS and Windows Phone for some time now, uses your phone’s LED flash as a torch at the touch of a button. Previously, Android owners were forced to download a separate flashlight app, which if you’re upgrading, you can probably go ahead and delete now unless you’re after specific third party features, such as strobe lighting or timed flash effects.
Data Usage Notification
This is a handy feature if you’re on a strict data plan and you have a tendency to go a bit overboard. Use the two fingered downward swipe to access your quick settings before tapping on your phone’s signal symbol. A new screen will appear displaying the amount of mobile data you’ve used. Tap More Settings and you can set a specific data warning as well as a data limit, making it almost impossible to veer outside of your contract and saving you from racking up some unsightly bills. For instance, if you have 5GB of data a month, you can set the warning at 4GB and the limit at 5GB. Once you reach 5GB of data usage, your phone will turn off all data.. Hide Or Disable Sensitive Notifications
Notifications have received a lot of special attention in Lollipop. Not only do you have more control over them (such as double tapping to open the app associated with the notification), but they’re now also displayed on your lock screen, allowing you to see what’s happening on your phone at a glance. The downside to this however is that so can anyone else. If you’re receiving notifications that display sensitive content, you can make sure this is kept hidden until you enter your passcode. Just head to Settings > Sound and Notifications and under the setting that says ‘When device is locked’ select ‘Hide sensitive notification content’. You can also hide all notifications if you wish.
Long Press To Remove Notification Spam
With a lot of apps come a lot of notifications. Sometimes these are helpful, such as weather updates or chat notifications, but other times they’re a pain in the neck, such as software updates or intrusive games urging you to buy upgrades. Next time you receive a notification you don’t want, tap and hold it until a small ‘i’ appears on the right hand side. Tap the ‘i’ button and you can either block the app from sending notifications in the future, or set it as a priority, so that it’s always at the top of your list and will come through even when your phone is set to silent.
