Android Q developer beta is available for all Google Pixel phones

Google has released the first preview of Android Q. This release will inevitably include ample bugs and half-finished features, but it's the first glimpse of Google's vision for the future of Android.

We've got Android Q beta up and running on our Pixel 3 XL.

Note: If you've not installed Android Q on your device, there are reports that you'll be able to use the dark mode on Android Q if you enable it on your Android Pie device prior to installing the Android Q update. Also, if you know of any other methods to turn on the dark mode in Android Q, let us know in the comments down below.

One of the features we're most excited for is improved control over apps that use your location. With Android Q, you can choose to grant an app location access, deny it, or only allow access when the app is open. That menu includes two options in its current state: set a wallpaper and add app shortcuts.

"Android is right at the center of this innovation cycle, and thanks to the broad ecosystem of partners across billions of devices, Android's helping push the boundaries of hardware and software bringing new experiences and capabilities to users".

You'll have more control over apps and their access to shared files. This means that users will be able to limit access to photos, videos, or audio collections on the device with the help of new runtime permission.

If the user is likely to spend cash in-app, they'll be allowed to play the game without advertisements.

Android Q also makes sharing content faster. All the change logs and new features of the Android Q can be seen from the Source link given below. This was essential as now the operating system and the apps can take advantage of the innovative different screen types. One of the best new additions is how easy it is to share your WiFi settings.

As rumors suggested, the Android team has refined privacy settings in Android Q, and we're starting to see some. For example, if you're using a browser but you've got no internet connection, a setting panel can pop up and display the Internet Connectivity panel so that you can quickly toggle on Wi-Fi or mobile data without leaving your app.

New privacy security features.

Now, for the most important question: What does the Q in Android Q stand for?

With Android Q, apps can request a "dynamic Depth Image" which basically allows you to use specialized blurs and bokeh options as well as enjoy 3D images and support for AR photography.
