If you are an Android user, you may be familiar with the on button. It is a new widget that is present in many of the Android phones to help users interact with their apps in a more convenient manner. The on button is, simply put, a sort of dialer button that allows users to call up the Google search box in order to perform a variety of tasks. Below is a look at how to use the on button in Android.
Most of the native Android phones do not support this widget. However, the device manufacturer might have added it in the phone. In other words, if you see the on button, you will know that the phone does not support this widget. If your phone has an on button, you can still use it in order to activate a number lookup or other such task.
The easiest way to get such actions is to access the in-built contact list from the menu that pops up when you press the home button. Then you can either call up the contact’s social security number, or you can simply start a search through Google. To access the contact list, you can go into the contacts folder. This is a good place to start since most people do not expect to see it and will probably not bother to check it out. The shortcut menu is accessed by pressing the menu button.
While you can get such actions with the contacts list, you will be required to log in with your Google account in order to perform such actions. This is because the Google contact list, unlike the one in the default contacts folder, cannot be accessed without a Google account. Besides the contacts list, you can also use the navigation keys, which are the small icons on the bottom left part of the screen. They are useful to access the application icons and home screens.
You can easily perform such actions if you log in with your Google account. It is as simple as clicking on the menu button and then selecting your account from the list of options. The menu will then turn green, indicating that your account is active. You can use the contact menu to access your Google contact list, edit your Google account or even sign out.
As soon as you have entered your credentials, you can then start searching for certain app. The shortcut button that appears when you are typing into the address bar will give you the option to perform a search for any app. However, you should make sure that you do not end up with a random app for such a search. This is because such a search can land you in some unwanted situation.
Before launching the specific app, you need to look for its icon in the app drawer or on the launcher. This is because this widget can be very useful if you are looking for a specific app. However, if you cannot find it, you will need to try again later.
After installing the widget, you can now start performing searches with it. The widget is very convenient if you have an app that you would like to search for and then use it to perform a search.
