10 Best Android 15 Features

It wasn’t long ago that we had the Android 14 OS; now, the 15 is on its way. Although the official release date of the Android 15 isn’t known yet, there hasn’t been any leak from developers, and as usual, the beta build gives a bit of insight into what to expect. We have seen and heard that the Android 15 will be a worthy upgrade. 

If you remember, Android 13 was the last major shakeup in the Android ecosystem. It came with many upgrades and exciting features that made us believe the Android universe was headed in the right direction. However, there were some major breaks in Android 13 and Android 14

Don’t get me wrong; both OSs were awesome, but they lacked the upgrade we were yearning for, and you can quickly tell from the user interface. 

But with Android 15, we think the Android OS is back on track. Based on what we’ve seen, these OSs have top-notch features that will be a blast. 

In this post, we will list all the top features of Android 15 and ask you what you think about this upgrade. So, let’s get to it.

Top Best Android 15 Features

Satellite Connectivity Support 

When Apple announced satellite connectivity support for the iPhone, it left a sour taste in my mouth as an Android lover. Many of us voiced our complaints about why we aren’t getting this feature on Android. Now, I think the south taste is out. 

According to information from trusted platforms, Android 15 will include satellite connectivity support. For those who don’t know what this is, satellite connectivity support allows you to send and receive messages even when you are out of network range. 

So, Android 15 will allow preloaded RCS and SMS apps to use satellite connectivity support to send and receive messages. This means satellite connectivity support isn’t limited to emergency uses only, as it is on iPhones.

If everything we’ve heard is true, all Android 15 devices, even budget phones, will have this feature, which is a plus for Android. 

Find Your Phone Even In Offline Mode 

As we all know, with each Android update, Google tries to improve the Find Your Phone feature. This feature helps owners track their phones when they are stolen or misplaced. 

On other Android OSes like the 13 and 14, where the phone needs to be online before you can track it, Android 15 can track your phone even though it’s offline. How will this work? That’s a good question. According to our information, the Android 15 will use Bluetooth ping to help track a lost phone.

We all know there is a Find My network; now, this is what will happen. The missing phone will broadcast its location details to any nearby Android device, which, in turn, will be uploaded to the Google server. 

Only the broadcasting device owner and those with access to the encryption key can locate the device. Furthermore, it was reported that Google is working on Powered Off finding. 

This will help users find their missing phone even if powered off. The sad news is that it will only run on Android 15 and later, so those with the old Android version won’t be able to access this.

Notification Cool down 

Another feature to expect from the Android 15 is the notification Cool Down. This works because it prevents successive notifications from being sent from the same app. 

For better clarity, if you have received a notification from an app when the same app sends another notification, this feature will cool it down. 

This way, users will receive fewer annoying notifications. A report from Android Authority says that Android 15 will come with a feature called vibrate when unlocked. 

When you toggle on this feature, it will prevent your locked phone from constantly vibrating when you receive successive notifications. It will only vibrate when unlocked. 

Partial Screen Sharing 

Those who love recording their phone screen will love this. The Partial Screen Sharing feature helps you screen record or share a particular app rather than the entire screen. 

With this, you don’t have to panic when you mistakenly open an app you don’t want people to see while sharing your phone screen or recording. 

Private Space 

Google has been trying to improve security on Android devices, and they’ve taken a step towards achieving this. Private space helps users create a secure space to hide sensitive data, files, and apps. 

You can also create a different password or PIN to protect your files. Furthermore, you can install apps directly into the private space and delete them anytime. 

Although this news isn’t legitimate, rumors have been circulating that Google might also add a private share to Android 15, which would be cool. 

Sensitive Notification 

Regarding security, as we all know, certain fraudulent third-party apps tend to access your messages, including OTP messages. 

These apps expose your messages to specific individuals with negative motives. In a bid to solve this problem, Google has added this sensitive notification feature to Android 15. 

This feature prevents these apps from reading your OTP messages. 

Battery Health 

Finally, this is coming to Android. The battery health feature helps users monitor the health of their batteries, which degrade with time. 

The sad news is that most users rarely know the proper health of their phone’s battery and don’t know when to change it. However, with Android 15, you can access battery health information and be informed when your phone battery needs a change. 

The feature isn’t new on iPhones; we are just grateful it is finally coming to Android. 

Edge-to-Edge Apps 

With the increase in the size of Android phone screens and slim bezels, Android devices now show more content than usual. 

However, most apps don’t entirely use the space they have. Android 15 solves this problem by forcing apps to go side by side, in turn increasing user experience. 

High-Quality Webcam Mode 

Over the years, some of us have used third-party apps that help us use our Android phones as Webcam on our PCs. However, that will be changing soon. 

The Android 15 will feature an inbuilt, high-quality webcam mode. With this, you don’t have to download any third-party app to use your phone as a webcam. 

The lovely part here is that the video quality will be high due to the HQ symbol enabling the webcam mode. However, this mode disables power optimization, leading to high battery drain when used for a long time. 

App Archiving 

The app archiving feature allows you to keep data from uninstalling an app. Most of us have apps we rarely use, and we uninstall them to free up space. 

The app archive helps store data from these apps, so when you reinstall them, you start from where you left off. The feature is already available on iPhones, and you can also get it in the Google Play Store. The downside is that you can only store data from apps you install from the Google Play Store. 

However, that is about to change; Android 15 allows you to archive any app from the app info page and helps you archive apps you rarely use. 

This turns the app icon grayish, presenting you with a download icon. Tapping on the icon sends you to the download page on the Google Play Store. Furthermore, you can unarchive an app by tapping restore on the info page. 

Conclusion 

Android 15 promises many fascinating features. We just presented the top 10 features we found very useful. Also, Google may add some new features to the Android 15 that they want to surprise users. 

The official date of the Android 15 isn’t known yet, but I guess it should be out before November. So, let us know what you think of these features.
