Android Q Beta: New Features, Release Dates and How to Get It

Verizon Google Pixel 3 XL Google Releases Android Q Beta for Developers, Early Adopters

Credit: GoogleFoldable phones are tipped to be the next big thing in smartphones, and Google's making sure that Android Q is ready for it. Functions for pausing and resuming apps have been updated to allow for the multiple different processes that could run simultaneously on a foldable phone, and apps can now be more easily resized for changing between screens.

With Android Q, there's now a dedicated Privacy section in the settings app. Rather than bounce users between a smart speaker app and the settings menu, the pop-up would provide direct access to the setting an app require changes or permissions to, all while remaining within the app's interface.

We're limiting access to non-resettable device identifiers, including device IMEI, serial number, and similar identifiers.

If you are on Android Q, you can find out how to enable the new desktop mode here. Downloads will also require the user to select a location via the system file picker.

Given that numerous services offered by the search giant rely on machine learning and the device performs some of these AI tasks, it would be an interesting decision for Google to include the Snapdragon 625 processor into its mid-range smartphones, which lacks the improved AI performance of some of the newer chipsets.

The operating system will include a new Sharing Shortcuts feature, which will let users quickly enter another app to share content. And because they're published in advance, the share UI can load instantly.

Sharing your Wi-Fi network password with friends or asking for theirs can be awkward.

So, here are some example ADB commands you can send to change up Android Q's gestures for the better. This is something most devices have for ages, and with the Q update this feature will be natively supported.

Monochrome is self-explanatory, and can be found in the current version of Android, 9.0 Pie.

This will allow the user to apply depth-related blurs, bokeh, and focus weighting without the need for additional hardware or third-party software.

It's become so controversial that Facebook even announced that it was unilaterally adding location-tracking control to its Android app to head off public concern about its data-gathering behaviour. The ones in beta program will have a small head start, but the exact date for anything official is unknown.

Finally, Android 10 will require 64-bit support in all apps. Appropriately named Android Beta Feedback, this will be the preferred means by which you can report bugs, submit feature requests, and other notes for the Android team.
