On Wednesday, Googlereleased a preview of the next version of Android, codenamed "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.
Android Q, which won't have a name or version number until closer to release, doesn't have any significant visual changes as we saw in Android Pie. However, this is the first beta.
For privacy, Android Q will offer a new location access setting for individual apps. The "allow" or "deny" permissions pop-up now has three options, and the blog post says that "Android Q enables users to give apps permission to see their location never, only when the app is in use (running), or all the time (when in the background)".
If you prefer, you can download the latest Android Q Beta build and manually flash it to your Pixel device. Sometimes you had to wait for the app you wanted to pop up; sometimes you would move to tap on something and the icon would jump.
Policies around access to device hardware identifiers has been changed, too. You should be able to disable or reset your advertising ID without being tracked, and Android Q makes that possible. There's also a version of Android Q for use with Google's Android Emulator, allowing developers without a physical device to get started coding for the new OS as well.
Instead, this beta has developer-focused tools and options. And it will offer a new Wi-Fi performance mode for when low latency is important, such as during real-time gaming, voice calls, and the like. What are your thoughts on the Android Q Beta 1? Developers will be able to register sharing shortcuts with the system so they will populate instantly. Be sure to check out the full list of changes by following the below links.
ART, the Android Runtime, is getting even more optimizations and should launch apps even faster. As part of its work in Project Strobe, Google is adding a number of new privacy and security features to Android Q. These include more control over when apps can get your location information, more control over apps' ability to access private data like photos and videos, and a new blocker on apps launching foreground activities from a background task (which often interrupts what you're now doing in another app). Thus, you'll be able to unlock your phone and access secure apps like Google Pay on properly equipped phones.
