Android Q features
Google’s developers team is busy building the new Android Q. The people over at XDA Developers have come across the earliest build of Google’s upcoming OS version tested on a Google Pixel 3 XL and shared some of its features.
Highlights of Android Q Features
- A system-wide dark mode
- More control over app permissions
- Desktop mode tool
- Multiple new developer options
- New accessibility controls
System wide dark mode
One of the most well-known features found in the leaked Android Q build was a system wide dark mode option that was enabled by ‘Set Dark Mode’ toggle. One more option to automatically enable the feature based on the timing of a day was also spotted.
More control over app permission
More privacy-focused tools. The revamped permissions controls spotted in the leaked build of Android Q indicate that users will be able to easily view the permissions granted to an app and also choose to restrict a few of them depending upon the usage status of an app. Moreover, the leaked build of Android Q is also seen to let users easily check which apps are using location data, a location icon which appears in the status bar
Some accessibility tweaks governing how long messages like heads-up notifications other actions appear for are also present, as well as a new “sensors off” Quick Settings tile which disables all radios, two new options for the screen lock setting, and options in the built-in files app to filter items by type.
