All the new features coming in Android 10

If you thought the Pixel 3 and 3 XL were prematurely leaked and detailed a year ago, you may want to keep in mind the first Pixel 3 Lite hands-on photos surfaced online back in November and we still have no idea exactly when Google might be planning to release this mid-ranger.

If you wonder when your device will receive the official Android Q, no one on the planet can tell you that because the final version of Q doesn't exist, and until Google publishes the AOSP version of Q (sometime during the summer), no manufacturer can really start implementing the new version across their portfolio. Android Q brings some UI changes and quite a few novelties under the hood, and also a dark mode whose activation Google made complicated in Beta 1, for whatever reason.

Just hours after a disappointing leak surrounding the benchmark of the Google Pixel 3 XL Lite, a fresh insight towards the cheaper Pixel devices has come forth. Of course, being the first preview, it's probably not stable and you should consider holding off until a more stable beta version shows up in a couple of months, likely at Google I/O. If you want t know all the ins-and-outs of the new Beta, there is a dedicated blog post about the OS available on the Android Developers Blog.

If you want to try out Android Q's new transition animation for the last app action, you can do so by substituting the 2 in the fourth position with a 1.

So, here are some example ADB commands you can send to change up Android Q's gestures for the better.

We can see that privacy will be a major focus in Android Q. Google now treats your location as a special permission that has additional controls for app access. For users, this means both default and downloaded photography apps will have the potential to produce better effects and more effectively process images.

Have fun playing around with the new gestures in Android Q!

Credit: GoogleApps can now add support for a kind of settings pop-up that features only relevant options to the app you're in.

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.

Given that numerous services offered by the search giant rely on machine learning and the device performs some of these AI tasks, it would be an interesting decision for Google to include the Snapdragon 625 processor into its mid-range smartphones, which lacks the improved AI performance of some of the newer chipsets.

Are you going to load the Android Q beta on a Pixel phone? Be warned: this is unstable beta software.

We must however repeat: this beta is more for developers rather than for general use.
