Google has finally opened the official name of Android Q. This time it has enthused away from the ‘dessert’ naming scheme and is purely calling the OS as ‘Android 10’.
The two leading goals of Android Q are to bring gesture navigation to Android and make the dark mode more prominent.
Android Q offers a new Dark theme that applies to both the Android system UI and apps running on the device.
The dark theme has many benefits:
- Can reduce power usage by a momentous amount (depending on the device’s screen technology).
- Improves visibility for users with low vision and those who are sensitive to bright light.
- Makes it easier for anyone to use a device in a low-light environment.
More rough permissions for apps to access your location:
· With Android 10, Google is enhancing the user privacy by making location access rougher so you are in complete control of it. In addition to enabling and disabling the location service, there will be a third option that will let the app access your location when in use or active.
Android 10 may have a ‘Fast Share’ option
Fast Share is a forthcoming Air Drop-like file sharing tool for Android 10. With a fast share, you can send one or more files to one more device by selecting the files you want and picking the “Fast Share” option in the share sheet menu.
Now connect to Wi-Fi without typing the password
The new Android OS will make it easier to connect to a Wi-Fi network with QR code. The owner of the wifi network won’t have to share the password every time.
Users can play more audio and video formats in Smartphone’s
Android 10 will support more video codecs so users can play added kinds of video formats in their handsets.
Smartphone’s get better integration with desktops and laptops
Android 10 is supposed to feature the ‘Desktop Mode’ that will let the handset quickly connect to desktops like Samsung dex.
