However, the most recent and attention-grabbing novelty has been called the Smart Toolbox , focusing on getting the most out of shortcuts. Now, with this latest update, we can also access various apps from the retractable sidebar , thanks to which we can quickly retrieve the preset ones.

How does Smart Toolbox work?

Looking more closely at the features of this "new" tool, we find that it is actually an almost identical copy of the bar that we found in ColorOS from OPPO and Realme .

The only difference of importance that we find is that it has functions such as screen recording and captures ; it simply has the start of the apps that are already inserted there.
