And in this post we have come with yet another really customizable tweak for your Android smartphone. Almost every Android smartphone has a dedicated home key for returning to home right away by pressing it. But here we would teach you to use that for any desired function you want. In general there are many hairs you could do with that home key like long pressing it takes you to the yak manger and double tapping takes you to S Voice,  only in case of Samsung smartphones.
