The next version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android, will bring a series of important changes. The filtered version of Android Q reveals a series of important details that you will see in the next version of Android.
The main change in the next Android is the dark mode of the entire system. The visual change gives a dark tone to the UI elements, such as configuration, initiator, volume pane, and third-party application notifications. A developer option called “forced substitution in the dark” enables dark mode for applications that do not support native dark mode.
Android Q brings two new tools in the accessibility section. “Action Time” allows users to choose how long to display an action promotion message before it disappears. The “Reading Time” tool will help users to specify how long they want the message to be displayed on the screen.
The new version of Android will also feature the “sensor off” tool, to help the user to disable all sensors with one click. You can find the new lock screen feature, the appearance of the application setup dialog box, and the new set of filters in the file application, which classifies files into different types, such as images, audio, video and documents.
Privacy focused tools
Android Q can also introduce more privacy-focused tools. The refreshed permissions check detected in the preview compilation indicates that users can easily see the permissions granted for a particular application. You can also choose to limit these permissions based on the usage status of the application. The filtered version also considers that the version also allows users to easily check the applications that use the location data.
The developer option called ‘force desktop mode’ enables a forced experimental desktop mode on a secondary display. This indicates that Android Q will introduce a native desktop mode functionality like DeX by Samsung.
The new version will majorly focus on enhancing the gaming experience. The smartphone users will get ‘Game Update Package Preferences’, to choose a graphics driver. Another option added in the developer options is a flag for enabling native screen recorder.
