Android Q Leak Reveals System-Wide Dark Mode and Bigger Emphasis on Privacy

by Amelia Scott — 5 years ago in Development < 1 min. read

In the event the customary cycle holds, it’s going to be a few months before Google is prepared to share anything about Android Q. But XDA Developers seemingly managed to spend time with a very early version of Android’s next large update, and although it doesn’t supply the full view, it does provide a look at a few of what Google could have planned.

The biggest visual change (for today) is a system-wide dim manner. Android 9 Pie’s” theme” can be changed from light to dark, but it only really applies to the notification color and the app launcher. XDA’s screenshots imply that Q will expand dim mode to more areas such as the settings menu, and it might have a setting to force dim mode even in apps that lack a built-in version of it.

Google is also continuing to bolster user privacy. After implementing stricter rules about things such as camera/microphone accessibility and desktop apps in recent releases, it seems like that the company will incorporate a fresh”allow only while the program is currently in use” permission. Currently, Android Pie provides just an off or on toggle for sensitive permissions such as location, therefore adding more flexibility Is a Great move since some programs will not operate if a consent is disabled completely There is also a developer setting for built-in display recording, but that’s not yet fully working in this early build of the OS.

Google introduced some of Android 9 Pie’s major new features back in May of last year, which means you may expect to hear more about Q and whatever new performance it will bring about this time. Both Android Oreo and Android Pie were released in August after a few months of beta testing.
