Android Q is the new version of Google’s operating system, from which a public presentation is expected in the near future. Although there are no official details, some features of the next Android update have been leaked before the official Google revelations.
“Android Q will enhance the privacy of users and also include a dark mode throughout the operating system.”
One of the main changes is the inclusion of a dark mode for the entire operating system. This means that users are not limited to dark mode only in apps that support it, such as Twitter, Facebook Messenger or YouTube, but can be extended to sections such as the configuration menu, and even applications that do not have such mode.
Another strong point is the hardening of the user’s privacy. Although this has been one of the main concerns of the company (emphasis has been placed on preventing access to camera and microphone by background applications) it seems that they have become even more strict.
Android Q will offer options so that certain features (such as the aforementioned camera and microphone) only work when an application is in use. New permissions on location and other information have also been added, so that they can be deactivated for specific applications.
These are the biggest discoveries about Android Q, but not the only ones. Apparently, the new operating system could have a function to record the screen, in the same way as the option available in iOS. It also seems that Google could be working on its own desktop, similar to Samsung DeX.
