Smart Text Selection in Oreo OS

Smart text selection helps you out in a pinch. If you're meeting your friend in the city and they send you an address while you're en route, your phone will open Google Maps. Or, if you touch a number for that new takeout place, the Phone app will open so you can order your favorite dish.

Smart Text Selection

Get where you need to be faster with Smart text selection. Touch and hold the desired text, and then touch the available app or touch More Options to web search or use a dictionary. For example, if you touch and hold an address, you'll see Google Maps. If you touch and hold a phone number, you'll see the Phone app. Pretty convenient, huh?
