Android Q Beta First Look!

Google release first Android Q beta here are some of the key features

If you have an "always on" mode activated on your Pixel phone, you'll notice that Android Q displays what's now playing (if anything actually is playing), whether it's a track from Spotify or a podcast episode. This means support for multi-resume and the ability to notify an app when it has the user's focus, and help for developers to manage how their app is displayed on a foldable screen.

Google has released the first beta build of the next version of its mobile operating system - Android 10. If the render is indeed accurate, it would indicate that Google is going with an in-display sensor like many other flagship Android phones.

Once you're enrolled, you'll continue to be updated to every new version of the Android Q beta automatically, over-the-air.

Keep in mind, this is only the first beta of Android Q, so that's not a surprise at all.

As The Verge reports, Google today released a preview of the next version of Android.

A new interesting feature is sharing WiFi via QR codes, which is much better than changing the password to some simple number array to make the network easier for sharing.

Félicité , a social media influencer, was found dead in her London home on Wednesday after a suspected cardiac arrest . Fans have been showing their support for the former One Direction star with messages of support on social media.

You get more control over how apps can access your device's location - as on iOS, Android Q lets you grant access all the time, never, or only when the app is open.

How to install the Android Q beta? Google will announce more Android Q features at Google I/O 2019 in May where it is also expected to announce some new Assistant related features. This ADB command will make it so you can swipe the pill to the left to go back (making the back button redundant), swipe down to pull down the notification panel (super useful!), and lastly retain the Android Pie recent apps scrolling. Currently, you can give an app access to your location either all the time or not all.

With Android Q, you have a few seconds after an app has been removed to undo the change. Right now, users can either grant or deny location access to an app which leads to many apps silently tracking the location of their users in the background.

In Android Q, the permissions have expanded. You need a Google Pixel - 1,2 or 3, it doesn't matter which version - to be eligible.

This is because a previous benchmarking leak revealed that the Pixel 3a XL was tested with 3GB RAM and a Snapdragon 625, which in a nutshell, are disappointing specifications for a device with the name "Pixel" attached to it.

After following the prompts, you'll be able to download the OTA update. Considering HMD's close relationship with Google, it's very likely that Nokia smartphones will be a part of the beta program.
