Google has been rolling out new features for Android ever since I/O earlier this month. We got our first glimpse of Android 15 and the coolest new features it brings to smartphones, as well as the highly praised privacy enhancements that will help make your data more secure. Now, the company is announcing a set of features that will be released much sooner than Android 15.

Android 15 has also been announced, and here are 8 exciting (or useful) features coming to the smartphone.

There are seven new features being added to the Android experience this time around, but the most exciting is the ability to edit text messages. As long as you're using the Google Messages app on your phone (RCS must be turned on), you can long-press on any text you've sent in the last 15 minutes to edit it. Of course, the conversation needs to be with someone who uses RCS, but it's a welcome addition.

Google is also adding new Emoji Kitchen sticker combinations so you can make your emoji creations even wilder. One example is combining a disco ball with headphones. Once you've found your new song, you'll want to send it to loads of your friends.

Syncing between Google devices is also being improved in two handy ways. Soon you'll be able to connect your Android tablet or Chromebook directly to your phone's hotspot with the tap of a button, eliminating the need to enter a password every time you connect. It appears to work similarly to Apple's on-device hotspot feature. Plus, when you're in a Google Meet call, you'll be able to use the cast button to seamlessly move between devices.

The update adds a new Google Home Favorites widget to your home screen, which lets you control your favorite devices, like light switches and thermostats, without having to open the app. Speaking of control, Google is also adding support for digital car keys to select Mini vehicles, with future integration into Mercedes-Benz and Polestar vehicles.

Finally, Google announced new features coming to Wear OS as part of the Android update. You can now control your Google Home smart device using a favorite tile or complication. This means you can turn something on just by raising your wrist and tapping a button. You'll love this feature, it'll make you feel like James Bond. As long as you're in the US or Germany, you can also pay with PayPal through Google Wallet on your smartwatch.

Google says most of these updates will start rolling out today, with Sync and Emoji Kitchen improvements rolling out from June 10, and Digital Car Key enhancements taking effect from mid-June.
