Dark Mode is coming in Android Q

New Leak Suggests Google Pixel 3a Devices Will Be About Cameras and Nothing Else

Google has unveiled several new features for the upcoming tenth release of its Android mobile operating system - Android Q. Stephanie Cuthbertson, the director of product management for Android, made the announcement on 7 May at Google I/O in Mountain View, California. Today it published samples of how to get it up and running on small devices such as Raspberry Pi.

The fact that many Android phonemakers, such as Samsung, are notoriously slow to roll out the latest versions of the software to their customers' devices (if they arrive at all) certainly doesn't help.

Key features of Android Q The key features of Android Q that Google talked about include making content more accessible to a larger audience. There's also Jetpack Compose, which combines the Kotlin language with a reactive programming model to simplify user interface development. Google says. Going forward, the firm will add support for basic text features (copy/paste, selection), plugins, Progressive Web Apps, DevTools debugging, and more.

Serengeti Empress won the race in her first start since pulling up early in March at Fair Grounds with external bleeding. It was the first time such a turnabout had ever taken place at the Derby, and the President was not amused.

Another notable new feature is called Live Caption. Missed calls, messages or alerts will no longer be a concern, as they will be bundled up and displayed in the new notification centre. At the developer fair Google I/O there will be a session "What's New with Android for Cars". Once enabled, it'll mute notifications from whichever apps you find distracting. If someone sends you an address, for example, it'll include an option to open right in Google Maps. It's an alternative to frameworks such as Facebook Inc.'s React Native, and its apps are built using Google's Dart programming language. There will also be support for portrait mode photos, Motion Auto Focus, and unlimited Google Photos storage. Font changes and splashes of bright colors should also make it easier for drivers to read in various lighting, the technology company said.

Android Q Beta 3 comes packed with numerous improvements and new features that early adopters may enjoy if they feel fearless enough to enrol their devices into the Android Q Beta program.
