ANDROID Q: Leaked the Latest Android Features – Officially, Android Q will not be introduced until May 7 at the Google I / O conference. The fact from year to year, the beta update was released a few months before its official announcement. Android Q Beta 1 is available for Pixel cellphone owners. Beta 2 will be announced in early April, and beta 3 or a more complete version will be released after the Google I / O conference. Google has released its official release schedule.
ANDROID Q: Leaked the Latest Android Features
Some Pixel users have installed Android Q beta 1 on their gadget and now have a new experience.
The newest feature of Android Q is the Dark Theme. By displaying pure black in the background of the application, OLED smartphones will only require less energy and reduce eye fatigue. This feature has often been found on third-party applications such as Facebook Messenger and YouTube. At this time, you cannot turn on or turn off dark themes in the settings menu.
In the option developer we found at the bottom of the Customizing themes sub-menu. You can change different system fonts (letters), change the shape of the icon and choose a new color. The possibility is still very limited in this beta 1 version, but it is very promising.
LATEST SOCIAL MEDIA MENU SHARE
When sharing links, images, or something from an Android smartphone, you have to click the Sharing button and then press which social media is selected.
The latest Android Q feature, Google has changed the panel by centering “Share” at the top and sharing directly.
MORE CONTROL OVER LOCATION
How to permanently prevent your location monitoring application? As with iOS, Android Q will limit the location for the application used. If you close Uber or Facebook, there’s no way they will track you again.
When opening the application for the first time, we also noticed that Android Q shows more clearly the different authorizations. The message is similar to the one on iOS.
VIDEO RECORDING ON SCREEN
This feature is clearly not ready now, but Android Q Beta 1 contains the default video recording. How does it work? We pressed for a long time to unlock the message starting the recording will appear. When finished, click Stop in the notification center and the video goes to the Google Photos Captures folder.
GESTURE FROM IPHONE X
For the button back to the previous application, Android Q borrowed from the iPhone X one of its best gestures. By sliding your finger to the right or left it will return to the previous application and when holding down the home button, then return to the last application that was used. This isn’t final, but it’s profitable.
NEW FILES APPLICATION
More aesthetic changes than revolution, the Android File application gets Material Design. More synchronous with other Androids and quite fun.
SIMPLIFIED WI-FI SHARING
Tired of the question “What is your Wi-Fi password”! To answer this problem, Android Q proposes in its settings to create a barcode that matches your home connection. Other users must scan the barcode to connect immediately. When we connect to a new Wi-Fi, we also have the option “scan password”. The smartphone then looks for the QR Code.
DESKTOP MODE ARRIVES
Now you can’t try it now, but Android Q says there will be a “desktop” mode. Similar to Samsung DeX or Huawei PC mode.
SIMPLIFIED INSTALLATION APK
One of the advantages of Android compared to iOS is the ability to install applications from any source. With Android Q, there will only be a small loading bar in the center of the screen. Again, Google simplifies Android.
SOME OF AESTHETIC CHANGES
In the notification center, the font used for the time / clock is different. In addition, the Android cellphone now displays the remaining battery percentage, Android Q changes the estimated time left before the cellphone turns off.
When the phone is idle and Always on Screen is active, the battery percentage will also be displayed. The song that is currently playing is also shown below the time. It is impossible to know whether this new thing will be provided for pixel phones or not.
