Android 10 Revealed: No Dessert For You! [Android Q Name + Hands-On]

by birtanpublished on September 26, 2020

as Google unveils Android 10 today the biggest surprise of all is that the long Android tradition dating back to Android 1.5 cupcake is no more Google is getting rid of the sweet treats that have been with Android since 2009 and so Android

Queue isn't Casey tow or queen of puddings it's just plain old Android 10 that's a big change and one that deflates the launch just a little bit a number is more predictable and less fun than some random quirky dessert and so

It's hard to imagine a similar level of hype around the launch of say Android 11 next year we already know the name after all and since we're now moving into numbers not letters will the next version even be referred to as anything

Besides Android 11 with no more sweet treats there's little reason for it to be referred to as Android r and besides that what's gonna happen to the Android statue garden over at Google's Mountain View HQ no one really knows yet in any

Case that's the direction Google's chosen and so if today's Android 10 announcement there's just enough time to go over this near final version of the OS before its release in the coming weeks and today Google's also showing

Off its new Android branding marking the biggest change in design direction since 2014 the full-body bug torrid robot is now Dom instead replaced with this new Android head graphic which will accompany the new logo type everywhere

It goes there's any pastel influenced color palette – as well as a new more rounded font kind of like a more friendly less bold version of the previous Android font we've been seeing for the past 5 years it's all part of

Making and a little bit more playful and a bit less nerdy anyway Android 10 proffer is likely just a couple short weeks away from launch as evidenced by developer documents saying it'll carry the September 2019 patch level by

Default and that means we should now get stuck into the final beta build the final Android Q beta represents a nearly finished build to the point where based on Google's own documents and our experience with the betas of Android P

And O over the past couple years this should be indistinguishable from what's launched as the final Android 10 later in the summer so the last mile of Polish for Android 10 is all about the new gesture navigation system I've

Criticized it in the past but in recent weeks Google's showed confidence that within generation of big screen phones its gesture navigation vision will in fact work out part of that has to do with a

New back gesture sensitivity control which was just about the only major addition incubator six it's now possible to control just how sensitive the back gesture will be to an inward swipe from the side the default is about two out of

Four on a scale which is okay but still mildly annoying at times on the pixel 3a here app developers can also specify exclusion areas for things like photo scrolling and slide-out menus those are areas of the screen with a back gesture

Won't apply but that's also another level of inconsistency which might make this frustrating to use at least in the short term in any case the new sensitivity slider doesn't seem to affect the peak and slide gesture which

Is how you'll need to activate hamburger menus if he used a new gesture system I have noticed this working dramatically differently on certain devices though on the pixel 3 is sometimes infuriating almost impossible to get working

Reliably often it's difficult to tell if you're gonna go back or open a sliding menu whereas on the pixel 3a it's much more predictable and just better overall as a result in most other areas and pretend is looking remarkably polished

With privacy and notification improvements the dark theme and further polish to the pixel UI and if like me you don't really like the new gestures then you can revert to a 2 or 3 button setup instead beside gesture sensitivity

The other minor changes in this build include a quick shortcut for emergency contact information located behind the power menu when you long press and an update to the Google camera app now puts the pixels excellent night sight camera

Mode in the main menu of camera modes where it rightfully should be between all the beta versions we've covered going back to March we now have an almost final picture of the next version of Android as well as knowing the name
