TechsPlace | Android is all set to roll on its next dice with the new Android 10 Beta 3 version that is Android Q. A fully-fledged release is planned to hit the market this season with major features for the tenth version. The most common changes which the users might notice the UI i.e. the dark mode and improved gestures. But there is a lot more to the major version apart from these minute changes.
The basic aim is to meet the needs of the users along with rectifying all the errors which have been hanging around in all the past updates and versions. Also, a lot of focus has been placed upon Android’s security and privacy models. To be precise, Google has been trying to reunite with the leftover work of the later version, trying to make the 10 version the most successful one. We ought not to doubt the capability of Google of course and you may hire an android app developer.
Android Q Features
Let’s get straight to the features of Android Q which are being enhanced and introduced, containing the excitement is hard, isn’t it?
1) Dark Theme
This probably has been the matter of the subject of the 10th version. Mainly because this has been lately been the basis of debates and the developers expect this feature to bring on the greatest of appreciation. It’s pretty simple gaining access to the mode, the user can straight away pull off the quick settings menu, tap on an option, and there it goes, your device’s interface will go all black from the present white color. This would actually save a couple of your battery drainage percentage, and the Android 10 Q’s battery saver mode has been directed towards automatic activation of the dark theme.
2) Gestural Navigation and the Back Button
This feature would, by far be contentious according to us because the gesture game is going to change, for the good of curse. The best part about this update is that the back button will become gestural as well, isn’t it exciting. Guess we know why it would attract the most eyes and lips talking about it. If you expect an explanation, here it goes.
The Android Q will contain a long and white bar at the end of the screen which would be the basis of the gestures. That is, swipe up to go home, for multitasking – you need to swipe up and drag across, to switch between apps – swipe across quickly, to get access to the app drawer – you need to swipe up from the home screen. Though we do not expect all of the positive views as per these gestures are in concern, but we do believe the debate is going to be around the corner for long enough.
The iOS team which happens to shift to the Android club will no longer find it difficult to cope, such are the similarities. The next improvement with this update is the animation, and we get the word they are better as compared to the 9 Pie. You might call the updates or features regarding the gestures a Xerox of the iPhone but, you Android has yet surprised the users with the back button. The users can swipe from across the edge either from the right or left and an icon “<” will appear which takes you back. To enjoy the android app development services, it recommended to stay committed to changes and comes along with the new update.
3) Security updates
Android app development company perceives Google tries rather hard to come up with recent updates, introducing something new every time. The struggle has been real all the time and something different has been brought to the dice, but rather a long way to go it is. The mechanism of updates generally goes from manufacturers to carriers in order to update and distribute each of the updates hence introduced. Therefore, “project Mainline” is being introduced in order to reach out to each and every system, through Play Store infrastructure. To facilitate this Google is working on 14 modules to be able to roll on the update directly. They are: –
- Captive portal login
- DNS resolver
- Documents UI
- Media codecs
- Media framework components
- Network permission configuration
- Networking components
- Permission controller
- Time zone data
- Module metadata
4) Permissions and privacy
It was noted as such, a different feature for Google likes keeping people familiar with new updates and not rather a newbie. Location access is being fixed, i.e. limit the location to a particular app and only when they are open, the hub of app permission will be a bit more defined, etc. Google will be simultaneously rolling on a frequent update for the permission and privacy setting. To enjoy the mobile app development solutions comes along with the new update, staying committee to adopt the changes is the key.
5) Live caption
Here is the most exciting feature, rather an impressive approach. Live captions will get you the actual script of what is going on in an audio or a video in written form, in literally any app. You may turn it on via the accessibility settings. You will find a new option below the volume radar, all you need to do is type it and you will be availing the facility in a black box, a great approach for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
6) Parental controls and focus mode
The present update contains monitoring your usage of mobile on a various interval basis and the new one is targeted to indulge parental control into the same section of the setting panel. This is not a new term but was in the form of an app, which would be integrated into the Operating System.
Changing the notification view is also Google’s part of the fun. The petty changes in the coming version are – you cannot swipe in both directions to dismiss a notification, rather will be a one-way swipe while the other would cater snoozing or setting. The major change though is the auto-reply function, where the messages will be detected in the notification panel and you will be able to send them an automated reply as per the context. Life if you receive an address – you will be suggested to being right there. The list goes on.
