What Is Smart Wake And How To Use It?
You may have heard of Smart Wake on a number of occasions. It’s a feature mostly present in newer smartphone models and those coming with the later versions of Android OS.
What is Smart Wake exactly and how does it work? Let’s find out.
Smart Wake sometimes listed as smartwake, lets you access specific applications right from the locked screen. For instance, with Smart Wake on your phone, you can draw a “C” on the locked screen and have your Camera app open up instantly. There are many options in the feature and more specific details depend on your smartphone manufacturer. However, the standard version looks something like this:
- Double Tap to wake your screen.
- Draw Up to unlock your screen.
- Draw a “C” on the locked screen to get to Camera.
- Draw an “M” on the locked screen to open Messages.
- Draw an “e” on the locked screen to open up your Web Browser.
- Draw a “W” on the locked screen to go to Settings/Home
- For the Music Player: draw right to skip to the next song, draw left to go to the previous one.
With some models, you will have even more luck, as they will allow you to customize the above settings and assign the letters to any app you like. For instance, you can set “W” to express-open Whatsapp or “O” to go directly to your Two Dots game.
Smart Wake is convenient and fun. With quick access to your most frequently used apps, your smartphone life can become much easier. If you see something picture-worthy, a simple drawing on the screen will get the camera going. Maybe you need to check a quick fact in Wikipedia? Great, make the “W” represent Wikipedia app and show off your just-gained knowledge among friends and colleagues.
There are lots of uses to the feature and quite a lot of phones already have it available for you. Its normally very easy to set up and enable.

Smart Gesture and Smart Wake are not the same. Yes, the concepts are similar – as both features allow you to activate and unlock the screen more conveniently. However, Smart Gestures rely on your phone’s proximity sensor. The function allows you, for instance, to pass your hand over the smartphone’s screen to activate it or skip music tracks by waving from the right to the left as well as things like auto answering a phone call when you lift the device to your ear.
