Android Q First look And Features

Posted by

Hey everyone! Let’s have a quick look at Android Q running on a Google Pixel 3 with system wide Dark-Mode, let’s check it out.

Changes –

  1. Lock screen always on display – Battery display moves to upper right corner, Active Notifications appear on the upper left corner instead of center.
  2. Notification Panel – Notification icons have changed a little bit not too much. But in settings menu we have noticed that some icons have changed. Swipe left to get rid of the notifications. Here in Android Q you gotta swipe right to dismiss your notification.
  3. Android Beam now removed from Android Q.
  4. In default app settings we have noticed that in pixel 3 with Q, we have a new thing called Rows. Though, we are not 100% sure about what that is and what does it signify.
  5. In Privacy settings – open up an application, the application developer can specify why they needed the notifications in the first place.
  6. Location – Apps that uses location appears on the top of the notification.
  7. Gestures – Turn off swipe up to home is removed in Android Q.
  8. Dark Mode – 8.1 Always off 8.2 Automatic 8.3 Always on: True dark mode is on this persist throughout the applications which supports the dark mode.

This is a very early build of Android Q but it does work on the phone with a lot of broken features. This is a privacy focused update and is awesome for those who are worried about about Android privacy.

Google is working on its own desktop / external display mode similar to Samsung’s DeX. There’s also a developer setting for built-in screen recording, that’s not yet fully working in this early build of the OS. Both Android Oreo and Android Pie released in August after a few months of beta testing.
