XDA got to the top of Android Q, confirming that the next version of our favorite Google operating system will include a dark mode as expected. But the hidden XDA picture hides many other secrets, including much needed application permissions, which can be a desktop interface of Samsung DeX as well as a pile of smaller features. new "Set dark mode" option in Settings -> Display, thanks to daytime auto-tuning. Take this switch and you're greeted with a dark (but not quite black) theme similar to what is already being done by some other primary Google apps – although XDA did not test if this setting enabled the
Dark Grays like this may show problems with the simplicity of lower quality OLED displays.
In addition to the new dark mode, the XDA has unveiled some significant changes to the model of Android's Q permissions. As well as providing a much more enjoyable visualization of permission requests almost reminiscent of Digital Wellbeing, the way the permissions work, has been changed. For example, a location can only be provided while the app is in use, rather than a blanket yes / no.
A new desktop mode programmer is also featured in these Android Q images, which XDA suggests to be used for something like the Samsung DeX or Superbook software. The setting does not trigger any behavior when turning on an external display, although it may be a space reserved or depends on other software or hardware to work. The XDA notes that while the setting is enabled, Wi-Fi will stop functioning.
Other new and returned settings in the Developer Options menu have also been revealed, such as returning support to a free-form multi-window, setting up a game update preference that asks you to select graphics drivers, a built-in recorder (yay!) and Always On Display ̵
Some accessibility options that regulate how long messages as main messages appear for other actions are also available Miss, and a new "sensors excluded" tiles for quick settings that disables all radios, two new options for setting the screen lock and options in the application for embedded files to filter items by type.
The XDA still digs into the image it has for more information, so be sure to check back later to see if anything else is available
The video shows new features on Android Q to Pie
In addition to sharing early screenshots of Android Q yesterday, XDA Developers has already uploaded a video through the operating system and its changes in more detail. They get what Android 10 is likely to run on Pixel 3 – a shortened GSI construction without Google apps and services – and compare it to Android 9 Pie on Pixel 2.
In addition to the hotly anticipated dark mode system and welcome the changes to the permission settings, one thing that particularly attracted my attention was the subtle change of notification gestures. You can now move a notification to the left or right, but you need to do some sort of burst to get the delay or tuning options. In Android Q, just the right-hand drive and just left-hand navigation gives you these options. It's strange, that's how Xiaomi processes the notifications in MIUI 10. Check out the XDA video below to see this and any other changes that have so far been discovered.
