But what does Touch Bar do?

Touch Bar simply enables you some shortcuts of things which you often use, right on your fingertips. Like quick settings or your favourite smileys.(in MacBook only)

This idea inspired iOS developers to develop a Touch Bar for iOS mobile devices which lets users use a hovering Touch Bar in their devices. But that was only for jailbroken iOS devices.

Right after that Android developer developed a TouchBar app, which is much similar to its iOS version. It is free for Android users and the most important, it doesn’t require your Android device rooted. Now let me tell you how you can get MacBook Pro Touch Bar in your android device easily step by step.
