Google today published Android 10, the latest mobile operating system formerly known as Android Q, Android 10 is Google’s first major OS version that hasn’t got a dessert name since Android 1.0 . One of the first to receive the Android 10 update is Google’s Pixel phones. Starting today, September 3, all authentic models Pixel to Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a-will be updated.
Android 10, as explained by Google in a blog post, will not only power next-generation smartphones but also backing foldable smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy Fold and 5 G smartphones, including LG V50 5 G ThinQ, Samsung Galaxy S10 5 G, Xiaomi Mi Mix 5 G and OnePlus 7 Pro 5 G among others. “Android 10 provides you more security, accountability and information control,” Google wrote in a blog post.
Other quality-of-life characteristics mentioned on the Android 10 page cover Live Caption, which we first saw back in May at Google IO, which highlight real-time streaming of audio and video. Unfortunately, this will not start until later in 2019 and will only be accessible at first for Pixel phones.
Android 10 is large on the Digital Wellbeing characteristics of Google as well. Digital Wellbeing now engage a unique Focus mode that enables users to pick and silence the applications they find trouble until they come out of the Focus mode. However, this function is accessible as of now only in beta mode and to use this feature the excited customers need to become beta testers.
There are also a few privacy and safety features here, along with the capacity to share location information only with applications while you’re using them, and a fresh privacy section in Settings that provides you access to checks to manage your internet and app history, as well as your ad environments in a marginally more outstanding places.
The one characteristic that everyone has been waiting for is a dark mode, and Android 10 is not unsatisfying here. The fresh dark theme is now prepared for your night-time viewing, promising to boost your OLED phone’s battery life and help from a number of applications such as Photos and Calendar. Over time, more apps will undoubtedly switch to a dark theme as well, but the number appears to be rather limited and a little random right now, with Fit offering a dark mode while Gmail doesn’t.
The Android sharing function has always been quite slow, and this has been solved by Google in Android 10. “Sharing Shortcuts” allows users to jump into an app to contribute information, such as a file or a picture. This allows users to prevent the slow-to-load sharing menu .
Android 10 includes a large collection of new emoji including gender-inclusive designs, such as gender non-specific representations of professions with the choice to specify male or female models if you want. There’s a new emergency icon in the power menu. There’s an approximated time remaining for the battery life in the quick settings menu.
