Android 10 – Everything you need to know

 

We understand all about the next big update of Android’s operating system, Android 10. That releases openly as of September 3 but at first only for Google Pixel phones. Google IO 2019 introduces the recent major update as Android Q, but it formally renames as Android 10. The update to 10.0 adds a lot of different features. And that Google mentioned for the new software on its official website.

Android 10: RELEASE DATE

The new version releases officially, but that doesn’t imply it’s still accessible for all phones. For each device, each OEM must create its new version and operate with carriers to release it, which may require months. Don’t surprise if this new update isn’t available to your device until 2020.

WHAT’S NEW?

Thanks to Google’s mobile operating system beta, we get a more precise concept of the new Android 10 features to come. With all the beta releases up through the sixth and final beta that went out in late August, additional features and bug fixes arrive.

FEATURES

Beta (Final) 

The sixth and final beta doesn’t contain much-mostly bug fixes, and optimizations-but allows the swipe-to-go-back motion to be semi-disabled by applications.

The 10.0 won’t have Android Beam

Android Beam, the NFC peer-to-peer sharing method when two devices are nearby, will not have one feature in Android 10. In the beta and final software, placing phones back-to-back will do nothing, confirms at Google IO.

Support for Folding Phones

According to the Android Developers blog post, preparation is in progress for foldable phones in 2019.

Dark Mode

There’s system-wide dark mode feature that comes to 10.0, and it’s called Dark Theme. At Google IO, we’ve tried it in, and it operates as intended, but it requires spreading out to more menus. To date, it limits to the list of settings. 

5G

The new Android has some special 5G sleeves tricks. New APIs will allow applications to detect user connection rates and latency, as well as to detect if thconnection is measured.
