As speculated earlier, Google has released Android 10 for all Pixel devices. The release date was leaked by Canadian mobile carriers and it has indeed come true. This is the first time Google ditched dessert naming convention for its mobile operating system.
Google surprised us by ditching dessert naming convention for the latest Android. The company recently announced that its latest mobile operating system will be called Android 10. Now Google has revealed the exact date on which Android 10 will roll out for Pixel devices.
Up until now, Google has always named a new release of Android after a dessert. Well, with the release of Android 10, that is no longer going to be the case. The company has done away with dessert names and will now simply be calling Android Q as Android 10.
We are just weeks away from Android Q final version release. Google has now seeded the last and final Android Q beta. As expected Google has fixed some bugs and did maintenance. However, Google has changed how the gestures will work.
A new leak hints that Nokia is finally ready to jump into pop-up selfie camera bandwagon. MySmartPrice has revealed information about the upcoming Nokia 8.2. It may be recalled that Nokia 8.1 was announced in December last year and the company is now ready with its successor.
Xiaomi announced that they will be recruiting beta testers for MIUI based on Android Q Release. The company is going to roll out the update for 400 beta testers and XDA Developers have managed to get their hands on the upcoming MIUI build. The MIUI 10 build is running on Xiaomi Mi 9 and is based on Android Q.
With Android Q, Google is going to debut a new gesture navigation system that’s more refined than the one it launched with Android Pie last year. However, with the release of Android Q Beta 5 earlier today, Google has announced that when the OS is initially released to the public, the new gestures won’t work with custom launchers.
Android might pack a lot of features but sharing files between devices is still a pain. Unlike iPhones, Android phones do not have a proper AirDrop-like feature.
As expected the Android Q Beta 4 has officially arrived. The Beta 4 will offer a much stabler platform for developers to test the compatibility of the apps. Google has also published a standard API level (29) alongside the official SDK for developers.
Google has been toying with the idea of ditching the back button since the launch of Android Pie, but with Android Q it’s finally pulling the trigger.
