Google Pixel 3 owners get huge Android boost as major upgrade revealed

Google Releases Android Q Beta for Developers, Early Adopters

Google Announces Android Q Beta: Faster Apps, Privacy Boosts, and More

Google's Android Q beta forces a system-wide dark mode if users left their phone on dark mode before upgrading or activate it either by heading to battery saver or with ADB in Android Q. The toggle has been removed in the first beta builds of Q, presumably so that Google can polish it before letting users test it.

Android 10 includes a number of new features with a focus on privacy, including the option to limit location information and files access by applications when they are not in use.

The operating system will also include enhanced support for foldable smartphones such as Samsung's Galaxy Fold and Huawei's Mate X devices.

Pixel users, get ready to engage Smug Mode: you get to try Android Q before anyone else.

Apps will also find it harder to gain access to things such as photos, videos, and audio.

Google doesn't mention it in its official blog post, but Android Police spotted for some theming options in Android Q's developer settings. It works quite well (on the Pixel 3 XL and not the Pixel 2) but you can now have "only" a single freeform window open on your homescreen.

With Android Q, there's now a dedicated Privacy section in the settings app. However, it does also lock out legitimate apps that use clipboard data for other purposes, like passing them to a PC for seamless copying and pasting between devices.

This change is meant to prevent apps from copying, say, passwords or other sensitive data without user knowledge. Just as Android 9 Pie came with different kinds of display notch designs, the Android Q has been created to better manage the contents on devices with foldable screens. Google offers the beta to collect and incorporate user feedback.

As known through various leaks in the past, the latest Android version comes packed with a lot of new changes.

In Android Q, the permissions have expanded.

Launching affordable devices under the Pixel 3 range will give Google access to more sales and exposure in price-sensitive markets. You should be able to disable or reset your advertising ID without being tracked, and Android Q makes that possible.

So, one way is to get enrolled in the Android Beta program using the link given below, after which the Beta 1 will automatically land your Pixel phone via OTA update.

Giants agree to contract with wide receiver Tate
Over the past six seasons, (starting with 2018), Tate has ranked 28th, 17th, 24th, 12th, and 30th in fantasy points scored. The Lions discussed an extension with him past year but had numbers lower than he was looking for.
