App swipe up gesture:
This feature was introduced with HarmonyOS 2 but does not come with EMUI 12. So EMUI 13 is the software that finally brought in-app swipe up gestures, also known as app snippets.
The feature works as a trigger to expand the app’s features, such as the app’s own service widget or a set of key features. This allows you to start a specific function on the spot. However, you can also pin an app’s service widget to the home screen.
Making their grand debut in the EMUI universe, Service Widgets are home screen cards that provide quick access to an app’s key features or readouts. For example, the health widget will show you consumption as well as step count, and the camera widget will let you take photos in four different modes. Widgets come in different sizes to fit the layout.
Stack and group widgets:
To save space and keep the home screen layout clean, there are two additions: stacking widgets and grouping widgets. These two functions work according to their names, but they are quite useful.
The new big folders are now smarter than ever, they come in a variety of sizes and you just need to hold and pull the anchor to resize the big folders according to the app inside the folder.
Drag to share:
Sharing is further enhanced and made accessible, long press on any text, image or file that catches your eye, drag it onto SuperHub and paste or share it to any app or connected device. You can easily find, reuse, and delete previously pasted and shared content.
Super Device is a way to go, and it’s finally here. EMUI 13 brings you a Super Device feature that supports collaborations between a wider range of devices, including Huawei Vision, Huawei MateBook and Huawei MatePad Paper, Eyewear, Earbuds, Smartwatches, Tablets and more.
Multi-screen collaboration now comes with a landscape window mode, which allows you to open apps in large horizontal windows to maximize your view.
Another feature of EMUI 13 allows you to shoot from any angle on any connected phone and get a side-by-side view on a single screen. During video chats, you can switch between the cameras on your different devices, which is the next level of innovation.
Do you want to share music with your friend from a smartphone? Yes, you can with EMUI 13, just connect the FreeBuds devices and share up to two earbuds at the same time. While also controlling the volume level.
EMUI 13 brings you this unique ability, SuperStorage to free up to 20GB of storage space by stacking duplicate files, compressing less-used apps, and deleting unnecessary downloads to create space for your important storage requirements.
Privacy & Security:
EMUI 13 takes care of the privacy and security of your Huawei smartphone. This happens courtesy of the privacy center and security center to review app access and personal data and inform you of vital device information.
One of the novelties that EMUI13 has over its competitor is the sensitive information removal tool that could remove the location of the image, the time and the model of the device used to take the image.
