Android 5.0 Lollipop improves the experience with notifications in apps

Android 5.0 Lollipop improves the experience with notifications in apps

Android 5.0 Lollipop has already given me an excellent impression since its presentation, during Google I / O 2014, and it has only improved over the days. Thanks to a French developer, we now know that a new API present in the latest version of Android allows adding a quick shortcut to the settings of the application itself, thus avoiding having to open it to disable notifications or any other specific function of the app.

The operation of the new feature is quite simple. To see the settings icon, just press and hold a notification for the application in question. After that, by clicking on the gear button, you will be redirected to the settings screen, where you can disable those annoying and often unnecessary notifications.

Apparently, this option will not be visible by default in applications, so it will depend on the developers to choose to add them or not.

So, in your opinion, did Android Lollipop come or didn’t come with the extremely optimized software usage experience? I’m really curious to know what you think in the comments below.
