Google Pixel 3 Lite XL Spotted, Check Specs

Android Q Beta Released

Pop ups, like those that one gets treated to when they have apps like Opera News installed, may be a thing of the past when Android Q rolls in later in the year. But, this is a beta version intended primarily for developers and it can be buggy.

So what shiny new features does Android Q bring along with it?

Google's Android Pie already lets users change the shape of their icons by default on Stock Android and ROMs which are close to it.

There's a truly epic blog post here listing all the features, including new privacy functions, location controls, new sharing shortcuts, in-app settings panels, and even adaptive WiFi.

Android Q will also come with better control over location data sharing.

"For example, an app asking for a user's location for food delivery makes sense and the user may want to grant it the ability to do that", Burke said.

An app can not access the location of the smartphone unless said app is in the foreground. These identifiers include both the serial number of the hardware and the IMEI code for the hardware.

President Trump Vetos Resolution That Ends His National Emergency Declaration
The bill passed the Senate by a margin of 59-41 with 12 Republicans joining Senate Democrats in a rare rebuke of the president. Democrats - and a handful of Republicans - were quick to label the move presidential overreach.

Is this the final version of Android Q?

Apps will be able to take better advantage of the foldable phones and other large-screen devices. Despite this, it seems like Google is quite pleased of the way Pixel 3 turned out because the Android parent has now made the top notch visible in screenshots. If Google incorporates the same sensor that uses the same camera computational techniques to carry out image processing, we will have a real victor on our hands and it will be at a price range that more customers can enjoy and appreciate.

The Android Q Beta 1 installation process is pretty easy but in case you stuck somewhere during the installation or getting any issues after the installation, and you wanted to return back to the previous stable version of Android then you may have to perform the clean installation which may erase all your data. Once enrolled, Google will notify the user about their status and tell them a system update for their enrolled device is ready.

This is a new API that should help Android devices talk to MIDI equipment more effectively.

Each app will get its own isolated sandboxed storage when using external media such as SD cards, which no other app will be able to access.

By improving the Wi-Fi stack, Android 10 can offer high-performance and low-latency Wi-Fi modes to improve gaming and voice calls. Apps must refer to NetworkStatsManager and ConnectivityManager classes, which are handled differently from /proc/net. It will be a floating user interface which can be started by a third-party app to show system settings such as internet connectivity or volume.

Devices running the new operating system will also support HDR10+ video and Opus audio encoding.
