Android 10 beta rolls out

Verizon Google Pixel 3 XL

Unlike previous years, where the first preview release for the next Android update was released only for developers, Google has made the first Android Q beta available to anyone who wants to sign up. They've angled their newest tech for this end as "App campaigns for engagement" and "smart segmentation" features for developer use in Android games.

Controlling apps that access photos, videos and audio files have become easier to manage on Android Q. Also, apps are required to use the system file picker inside the Downloads folder so that users can choose which files can be access by the app.

Users are prompted to give apps permission to see their location never, only when the app is running, or all the time - even in the background. The fourth version of the beta, which will feature final APIs, the official SDK and app publishing libraries for the Play Store, is set for the turn of June. For the uninitiated, Project Strobe is a review of third-party developer access (this includes the likes of Facebook and TrueCaller) to Google account and Android device data.

Further privacy controls extend to limiting the app's access to the device's serial number, IMEI and other identification aspects.

Android Q will come with a new settings panel in the system which will help users access important settings directly without leaving the app. Key settings such as NFC, volume, Internet connectivity will be displayed in the floating UI. For example, Chrome could show shortcut buttons for adjusting settings like WiFi, airplane mode, and data without you needing to go into the Settings app.

Android Q puts new limits on files located on shared external storage. Or you can just keep it on all the time. The post stated that the Beta version is rolling out to Google Pixel devices including the original Pixel and Pixel XL. Camera apps can request a Dynamic Depth image which consists of a JPEG, XMP metadata related to depth related elements, and a depth and confidence map embedded in the same file on devices that advertise support. The added depth metadeta can be used by apps to apply "specialized blurs and bokeh options", among other things. This aids in providing high-quality video content and reduced bandwidth. As we've discovered in the past, initial builds of new Android versions can have various issues, so we recommend not flashing this software onto your daily driver. You can read about all of the updates in the first beta for Android Q on the Android Developers Blog. Comment in the section below and stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more.
