There are many interesting features such as the Dark Theme, Smart Reply, gesture navigation and Live Caption. First of all, with the new Dark Theme feature, you can make your entire phone dark. This is almost similar to Apple’s upcoming iOS 13 which makes the entire phone dark. Not only that, but Google is also allowing its dark mode for a specific app such as Photos and Calendar. With this feature, Google says it will be easier for your eyes and for your phone battery too.
The second feature is the gesture navigation which was preview back in May during Google I/O. Gesture navigation is mainly for devices with a larger screen and edge-to-edge displays. This feature has already existed in iPhone X where you can swipe easily. The same you can do now where now with few simple swipes you can go backwards, pull up the home screen and fluidly move between tasks.
