Some of the other additions include new RAM manager, adoptable storage devices, new app drawer, auto backup and restore for apps, and support for USB Type-C ports.

LG has also detailed some of the features it added in the latest Android build including battery optimisation; Knock Code settings, which will be updated to offer an improved experience for the latest OS build; Direct Share, which will show users frequently shared combinations of recommended apps and people; Silent Mode sound profile; auto-brightness improved to be brighter when in a bright place and darker in a dark place; memory settings have been added to Settings > General > Memory to be easily accessible; screen for Apps settings has been simplified, and LG Bridge has now been renamed to LG AirDrive.
