A few reasons to be excited about the next Android update
While most brands are working hard in rolling out Android Pie to their devices, the guys over at 9to5Google and XDA Developers are busy doing a deep dive at Android Q’s new features. Previously, XDA Developers revealed that Android Q will have a new way of handling app permissions, along with a system-wide dark mode.
With 9to5Google’s research, they found more new features coming to Android Q. One of these includes a dedicated emergency option in the power menu.
Other new features spotted by 9To5Google include native support for 3D facial recognition—described to be similar to the FaceID setup process for iOS. Screen recording will also be native for Android Q, and there is a new feature called “Sensor Privacy” that lets you disable all sensors when needed. Rounding up Android Q’s new features include support for Wi-Fi WPA3 and 5G.
Android Q is expected to be unveiled this May at Google’s I/O conference, so there may be additions and omissions along the way.
