Recently, Google has released the beta program for Android Q for . Instead of publishing the first beta version for developers only, Google lets every user register and . Of course we have it installed as soon as possible. As we continue to dig around to find new, hidden and unannounced goodies, here are five Android Q features that are worth getting excited about.
Remember, Android Q is currently in beta – the first beta! – Functions will probably change or be completely removed. We will update this post if necessary.
Wi-Fi and QR Codes
Sharing your Wi-Fi network password with friends or requesting their password can be cumbersome. Android Q introduces a new feature that lets you create a QR code for your Wi-Fi network or scan a QR code to connect to a Wi-Fi network, directly in the device's Wi-Fi settings ,
Always accidentally remove an app from your home screen and then find that you can not remember which app was there? I have.
With Android Q, you have a few seconds after an app is removed to undo the change. You will find the undo button at the bottom of the screen. Press and bam, the app is back where it belongs.
Android finally gets more control over how an app can use location information. Currently, you can grant an app access to your location at any time or not all. With Android Q, you have the ability to access an app for your location information only while actively using the app.
This is not just a matter of privacy, it also helps to save battery life.
With Android Q, there is now a special privacy section in the Settings app. When opening, you'll see the different permissions apps can get for calendar, location, camera, contacts, and microphone.
Android lacks a clear way to show which apps can access what data on your device. The new section makes it easier to detect and revoke permissions for specific apps.
Better notification control
If you press and hold a warning for a long time, you now have several options for managing how the app notifies you: Lock, "Silently", and "Keep the Alert."
This is a small but important feature because you no longer need to go into the Settings app to find out how to customize an app's notifications. You just press long, choose an option and you're done.
