Motorola was first introduced the Smart Driving Mode on its Moto X smartphone back in 2013. Motorola’s Driving Assist automatically identifies you are driving and helps you stay focused on the road. Realme’s Smart Driving and Riding Mode have also offered similar functions when you are driving your car or motorbike.

What’s Smart Driving mode in the Realme smartphone? This feature offers distraction-free driving. In this mode, all unnecessary notifications will mute (except incoming calls, which you can also categorize), automatically send text messages to callers that you are driving, and helps you stay focused on the road. Also, there is a Riding Mode for bikers. Smart Driving mode is the best alternate method if you don’t own an Android Auto enabled car. Android Auto will limit distractions while you are driving. For example, Android Auto won’t disturb you with every app notifications. It hides all notifications except phone calls and texts from supported messaging apps.
