I've been an Android user since the day it came out. I don't consider myself an expert on the system, but I do feel i have a great understanding about the deep features our devices have. That being said, I still seem to stumble across things we can do that I never knew was available. I also find that many users have very little knowledge of all the features they have in their hands. One example that seems to wow people is when I have them put their device back-to-back to mine so I can easily transfer photos, app links, webpages, etc. via NFC and Android beam. I've had many exclame, "How did you do that!?" It got me thinking, what other features am I missing out on? So I thought, how about we have a thread that we can share our favorite, possibly unknown to the average user, things your device can do. It can be stock (factory features) like the NFC one i mentioned above or something you can do with an app. Who knows we might find out our device are even more powerful then we thought!

Great tip! I find the Google Home device slightly crazy. I used to live in the UK and set it up over there in English. Sometimes the device would speak to me in Swedish though.. even though I never talked to it in my own language... 👻 Could maybe have something to do with my phone being set up in Swedish?

So, I wanted to share a nifty tip when you would like to remove something from your otherwise perfect photo - without installing third party apps like Snapseed or others. If your Galaxy device runs One UI 3.1 you actually have a quite powerful tool called "Object Eraser" straight in your Gallery. With this you can easily remove unwanted things from the photos you've taken with the camera. 

- Go into Gallery, settings, enable "Object Eraser" in the "Labs" section.

- In the Gallery, select the photo you want to edit

- Choose the Pencil icon to start editing it (if you are asked to update editor in Galaxy Store, please do so)

- Scroll to the right, there should be a new Erase icon next to the Text icon.

- Tap it, and then draw around the object you want to remove. Then tap "Erase"

- When you're done, click the check icon and enjoy! :smiling-face:
