Google finally releases the final Android Q Beta

Google releases final Android Q Beta ahead of imminent release Android Q has a dark mode. Everything else is details

Interested users can download and install the Android Q Beta 6 on Pixel smartphones by enrolling on the company's dedicated website.

Because this version of the software contains "all of the features, system behaviours, and developer APIs that you'll find in the final platform", app developers will be able to test how their applications will function with the upcoming operating system.

Android Q is about to be served.

The sensitivity aspect is also related to this, but with the caveat that the more room you give the back button the more likely you are to bork some gestures in the process - for example swiping up to open the app drawer. Moreover, API 29 SDK has been finalized in this latest update.

Ever since Google suspended the Huawei's Android license back in May, following the United States government's decision to put Huawei on the Entity List, there had been a lot of speculation about Huawei's in-house OS.

Interestingly enough, the Easter egg has only been spotted on Android Q Beta 6 for the Essential Phone.

Google's study showed that on average users performed tasks involving Home and Back more quickly with navigation gestures than most other models, and it was even faster than with the buttons system. Newly updated apps are supposed to design around the new back gesture; the sensitivity setting should help discover a balance for older apps with conflicting swipe areas.

Broadcom snaps up enterprise security business from Symantec in $10.7B deal
The sale of its enterprise business will allow it to focus on its consumer line, which Symantec thinks it can grow. Following that outcome Broadcom sought out mainframe software company CA, paying nearly $19 billion.

The "200dp vertical app exclusion limit" is a little technical, so here's what it means. So far, these gestures have invited a lot of praise as well as criticism from users, essentially dividing the community based on user preference.

Chris also tweeted addressing navigation drawers "The drawer behavior is changing".

Interestingly, the Easter egg doesn't appear on Google's own Pixel devices.

According to a blog post by the Android team, Android Q Beta 6 includes refinements for the gesture navigation.

What you get in Google's Android Auto big update Google is giving Android Auto a new look and features to make it easier to control apps.

Tapping the Start AR button kicks off Live View navigation, and holding up the phone reveals arrows, indicators, and a live map that guides you to your final destination. After that, simply follow the instructions to configure your environment.
