Android users can look forward to a series of highly anticipated updates coming soon. These new features are designed to enhance usability and convenience across a range of devices. Here’s what you can expect.


Edit Sent Messages with Google Messages

Starting today, users on Android 8 and later can edit sent messages through Google’s Messages app. Similar to other messaging platforms like iMessage, this feature allows users to long-tap an RCS message and edit it up to 15 minutes after sending. This much-requested feature will help users correct typos and clarify messages with ease.

Smart Home Control Widgets for Android and Wear OS

Coming soon, a new widget will enable users to control frequently used smart home appliances and devices directly from their Android smartphones or smartwatches running Wear OS 3 or later. This feature will allow for quick and easy adjustments.

Expanded Support for Digital Car Keys

Android is expanding its support for digital car keys, now including vehicles from Mini, Mercedes-Benz, and Polestar. This feature, which requires Android 12 or later, will allow users to lock, unlock, and start their cars with their smartphones, adding a new layer of convenience to vehicle access.


Enhanced Instant Hotspot Connectivity

Improvements to the instant hotspot feature will enable users to connect compatible devices with just one tap, and seamlessly switch between hotspot devices. This feature, requiring Android 11 or later, will roll out on June 10, making it easier than ever to stay connected on the go.

Anticipating Android 15

While Android 15 is expected to be released in the fall of 2024, individual feature updates often roll out throughout the year. The introduction of message editing in Google Messages, a feature long available on other platforms, is likely to be especially popular among users.

Stay tuned for these exciting updates and more, as Android continues to enhance the user experience with new features and improvements.
