There's no guarantee these will make it into the final build of Android Q, mind you - Google teased a dark mode in previous versions of Android, only to pull them in the final release - but a man can dream.
Android developer Till Kottmann has taken to Twitter with some new spoilers about the upcoming Android Q Beta program, highlighted in an apparent screenshot detailing exactly how feedback will work through testing.

Qureshi added that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government was ensuring that NAP is followed in "letter and spirit". Bolton that Pakistan's High Commissioner to India had returned to Delhi after consultations.
Here's a closer look at what this Android Q release delivers, how to get it, and when we can expect additional updates. Up until now Google only allowed this mechanism starting with later betas, when things became more stable, and the first preview build was only installable manually, as it was aimed exclusively at developers. The Android Q Beta 1 is aimed towards the developers for testing their apps for the new version of Android.
Why should an app require access to your location even if you're not actively using it? Apps should now use the new Download system file picker in order to provide users with more control. However, the Android Q first preview can be received over-the-air.
Android Q is also adding Settings Panels to help you quickly enable a specific setting that an app needs.
Israeli authorities to reopen Al-Aqsa Mosque compound
Israel closed the structure in 2003, claiming it was used by a heritage organization with ties to the Hamas militant group. Two Palestinian minors were arrested and police were seen shoving and wrestling several people to the ground.
Access to device IMEI, serial number, and similar identifiers will be limited in Android Q, and Google will randomize your device's MAC address when connecting to different Wi-Fi networks by default (this setting was optional in Pie). Google is also enabling Android Q to prevent apps from launching an activity while in the background, meaning that an app won't be able to just jump to the foreground and take over your focus. This share UI will apparently be able to load instantly, which is big if true. You can read the full blog post here, but we've gone ahead and summarized the most notable changes.
Android Qalso makes sharing content faster. Google says users will be able to toggle on a "low latency mode" which would be beneficial for "real-time-gaming" and "active voice calls". Developers can use Dynamic Depth data to create 3D images and AR photography.
In terms of imaging, applications can now request a Dynamic Depth image that contains metadata surrounding the elements related to depth along with a confidence map in the same file.
The performance of the ART runtime at the core of Android has been improved too, while the unified authentication framework now has support for passive authentication methods such as face. But the Android Q Beta is meant for developers and early adopters.
California governor suspends death penalty
