that should be included in the upcoming updates. Community users whose
suggestions make it the final build will be credited on the forums. Also to
ensure transparency, the company will show the adoption rate and users’ rating
for each feature.

Echo: Echo is an
answering machine with a twist, and it can either respond to calls with a SMS
or play your recorded voice before accepting a voice message from the caller.
It doesn’t need Internet nor is it restricted to any network operator. If you
can’t answer a call, the caller will hear your pre-recorded reply and will then
ask the caller to leave a message.

Sense: This is a
built-in search feature, which lets users look for anything on a phone. Though
it may sound similar to Apple’s Spolight feature, the key difference is the
contextual functionality. In other words, you can simply type a word like food
or recharge, and you will be offered results like Zomato, Paytm among others.
Sense can be called upon from anywhere with double-tapping the home button.
Retriever: Lastly,
the Retriever feature works in the same way as Apple’s Find My iPhone feature.

email id. This too works without Internet connection. This feature ensures that
you don’t lose your phone.
