Something to look forward to: Google has finally released the Android Q beta with a big focus on privacy. Hence, it is surprising the arrival of Android Q for Snapdragon 821 powered Pixel and Pixel XL phones from 2016. For the uninitiated, Project Strobe is a review of third-party developer access (this includes the likes of Facebook and TrueCaller) to Google account and Android device data.
Now, with Android Q, Google has added a simple solution to this problem. This includes everything from how apps are resized to how apps are muted when not active. Developers can use Dynamic Depth data to create 3D images and AR photography. SlashGear will be there to bring back all the details of the Android Q updates likely to arrive ahead of the OS' full release, which - if previous timelines hold true this year - we're expecting to be released in Q3 2019. Android Q will also be able to handle AV1 a video codec that allows for higher quality streaming video that uses less bandwidth.
The first is SimBad, a mobile adware campaign that has already had 147 million downloads across 210 infected apps on the Google Play Store.
There are two ways to test Android Q on your Pixel, and both are pretty easy. This can be especially helpful when managing connected devices. In short, there's a lot going on here, but it's primarily being targeted at developers rather than end users. And to make it harder for users to uninstall these titles, their icons would disappear from the launcher. Permissions as a whole have also been updated with greater control, including things like shared files, photos, etc.
Device location access
Settings panels. Apps will be able to show key system settings like internet connectivity, NFC, and audio volume via a new Settings panel that slides in over the app. For Downloads, users can decide which Download files an app can access.
Further privacy controls extend to limiting the app's access to the device's serial number, IMEI and other identification aspects. Quite a few apps run in the background collecting your location data when you are not using the app. With the new OS, developers can publish share targets that launch a specific activity in their apps with content attached. This will make it seem instantaneous when a users chooses one. This will be a boon for real-time gaming and improved voice calls. Android Q will support native monochrome shooting in RAW format.
Those with compatible phones who are interested in testing this early version of Android Q just need to enroll their device and then check for updates. In total the malware was found in 210 seemingly legitimate apps, which have now been pulled from the Google Play store.
