Google Announces Android Q Beta: Faster Apps, Privacy Boosts, and More

Google Releases Android Q Beta for Developers, Early Adopters

We don't yet know the authenticity of the drawing itself, but Phone Arena has also made a mock-up of the render that you can see below to help show how it may look as a finished product.

Google's Pixel phone lineup has always been great, but it has also always been stuck in the past.

If you don't own an iPhone, you'll be interested in the successor to Android 9 Pie, specifically Android Q: Google hasn't given the 2019 update to its mobile operating system a proper name yet, but the beta program is already up and running for selected devices.

Android Q beta is now available for Pixel devices

Most Android users have probably never heard of Android's Advertising ID (AAID), an identifier Google launched in 2013 so advertisers could legitimately track users whilst giving the latter the option to reset (i.e. wipe) the ID as often as they pleased. Google expects to have six beta releases this year before the final rollout, so you might want to wait for another couple of iterations.

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.

If you are on Android Q, you can find out how to enable the new desktop mode here. 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.

Disney rehires James Gunn to direct 'Guardians of the Galaxy 3'
When Gunn was sacked , he issued a statement apologizing for his controversial tweets. The first two films have made more than $1.5 billion in worldwide ticket sales.

It's become so controversial that Facebook even announced that it was unilaterally adding location-tracking control to its Android app to head off public concern about its data-gathering behaviour.

Included in the Android Q upgrade are improved security and privacy features which include being able to limit access to your location especially when they are not in use. 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.

In Android Q, the permissions have expanded.

North Korea Threatens to Break Off Negotiations with ‘Gangster-Like’ U.S.
Choe was referring to the summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump that ended when the U.S. I want to make it clear that the gangster-like stand of the United States will eventually put the situation in danger.

In the same leaked beta from February, there was apparently a system-wide dark mode, which would activate the darker colors in all apps, and recolor apps that didn't have a dark theme built in.

Are you going to load the Android Q beta on a Pixel phone? Considering HMD's close relationship with Google, it's very likely that Nokia smartphones will be a part of the beta program. Be warned: this is unstable beta software.
