Here's How To Enroll In Google's Android Q Beta Program

Android Q comes with plenty of other changes aimed at improving the overall experience of using the OS. Here's the site where you can download them. Now Google is adding much-requested theming features.

Credit: GoogleFoldable phones are tipped to be the next big thing in smartphones, and Google's making sure that Android Q is ready for it. Functions for pausing and resuming apps have been updated to allow for the multiple different processes that could run simultaneously on a foldable phone, and apps can now be more easily resized for changing between screens. Currently, you can give an app access to your location either all the time or not all.

Huawei and Samsung have both announced devices that can physically fold in half with Mate X and Galaxy Fold launching later this year. No more turning your router this way and that to find the sticker with the password on it. Users who wish to install this new OS version may need to enrol in Google's program for the goal beforehand.

Monochrome is self-explanatory, and can be found in the current version of Android, 9.0 Pie. Google says that apps can either use their own sandbox to store data or in "common collections".

Google Releases Android Q Beta for Developers, Early Adopters
Android Q beta is now available for Pixel devices

We do not yet have certainty about the flagship that Google will market this year (two as always?), Nor about which of the two devices, the following image is based, but here is what Google Pixel 4 looks like (or Pixel 4 XL). So, you could get better portrait mode snaps.

There are also camera tweaks, notably for enabling more messing around with depth-of-field control, as well as new audio and video codecs and improved APIs for graphics and neural network performance.

This feature could be really useful when you're listening to a track and want to extend a taste of it to your friend as well, so you can switch to the speakers using this feature. However, I must wonder what delicious dessert will Android Q be named after?

Apps will also have access to a quick settings panel that will include all the settings a user would need to update before using an app. Google offers a browser app as an example, which would have a settings panel that includes items like Airplane Mode, WI-Fi, and Mobile Data.
