Open Settings > Notifications > Wireless Emergency Alerts on your Android device. You can choose which types of alerts you want to receive, ranging from extreme threats to public safety concerns.

Simply take a photo of a product, a painting, a barcode, a famous landmark, or a well-known image. Google will offer you relevant information if your photo matches something in its database.

Your smartphone's camera is sensitive to infrared radiation, and you may test it for yourself by using a standard IR remote control. In the viewfinder of your camera app, the infrared beam emitted when a button is pressed appears as a white or purple light. When a remote control stops working, you may use this trick to see if the batteries are dead, and if you can't find the remote, you can use your phone as a substitute remote to control devices like your TV, air conditioner, DVD player, and projector. A custom remote capability is available on some Android phones, and it's normally found in the Tools or System folder on your home screen. Don't worry if you don't have that capability. From the Google Play Store, you can get a reputable third-party remote control app.The Apple TV remote is integrated into the control center of the current iOS releases for our iPhone dudes and dudettes. It is possible to manually add it in older versions.

The magnetometer incorporated into most current smartphones is used in the apps. While many are free, they usually contain advertisements.

10. Adjust Siri's Pronunciation

With an iPhone, there's an easy way to get Siri to stop mispronouncing words or names you use regularly. Activate Siri and instruct her to enunciate a word or name that she frequently misspells. Say, "You're pronouncing [that word] improperly," after she's repeated the word, and you'll be requested to say the name correctly. You'll then be presented with a menu of options for adjusting Siri's pronunciation.

You may accomplish far more than you ever imagined by simply downloading an app or enabling a feature on your smartphone. With your smartphone, the world uh at your fingertips - explore the possibilities!
