by August 28, 2019 0 comments

Android 10 (earlier referred to as Android Q) will be rolled out first for Pixel devices, starting September 3. The search giant has also changed the Android logo from green to black. The Android 10 update will be available for the Google Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 2 as well as on the first-generation Pixel and Pixel XL.

For the Android 10, Google has added a new accessibility option – Live Caption – that will make content more accessible to over 466 million deaf and hard of hearing people around the world. The Live Caption is designed to automatically caption media that’s playing audio on your phone. The feature works with videos, podcasts and audio messages, across any app. The moment speech is detected, captions will start appearing, without the need to connect to a Wi-Fi or cell phone data.

There will also be a dark theme in Android 10 that transforms everything including text from white to black. It will help users increase the battery life of smartphones. Android 10 will also bring new gesture-based navigation control that for many might resemble a lot like iPhones. A swipe up will take bring you to the home screen, swipe up and drag across to go into a multitasking view, swipe across it quick to switch between apps. And to get to the app drawer, simply swipe up from the home screen.

For security, Android 10 comes with almost 50 new features and changes focused on security and privacy. Google has also created a dedicated Privacy section under Settings, where you’ll find important controls in one place. The digital wellbeing is also updated with feature like Focus mode, which is designed to help you focus without distraction. You can select the apps you find distracting—such as email or the news—and silence them until you come out of Focus mode.
