The first beta version of Android Q is here
MOUNTAIN VIEW. Clearer, with more functions and support for folding phones.
Android Q is expected to be released in August
Google gives Android users a taste of the next version of their mobile operating system. The beta version of Android Q (also known as Android 10) has recently become available. Owners of a Pixel smartphone can download and test it.
The Biggest News Google will probably still save the internal I / O Developer Conference in May, but there are already some new features that you can discover now. An overview:
Dark mode: Google uses a black background in this new mode. The dark mode provides access to both the entire system and the apps.
Permissions at a glance: Android developers strive to make the rights of each app clearer. Users can now see at a glance which apps have access to the camera.
The Back button disappears: slowly but surely, Google is saying goodbye to the Back button. In the current version Android P this is always displayed when it is needed. The gestures have also been revised by the developers.
Share and forward: if you want to share a photo, this can be less cumbersome than before (also in apps).
Unlock with Face ID: face recognition has already been introduced by some manufacturers, now it is also part of the operating system.
Apps in the background: applications can only start new activities when they are in the foreground. This is to stop fraudulent apps.
Functions for mobile Fold phones: with the arrival of foldable smartphones, Google must also adapt its operating system to the new circumstances.
WLAN: A WLAN can be saved in the settings and passed on to other users via QR code.
