Google starts rollout of Android 10

Android 10 is now live, at least for Pixel devices.

Google has started rolling out Android 10 to Pixel smartphones, with an expected launch across other Android phones later this year.

The most notable changes to the 10th Android operating system is the compatibility of the Android 10 to foldable devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X. When it was still under development, Android 10 was codenamed “Android Q” and there was a strong emphasis on the creation of apps for foldable devices.

Google first released the beta of Android Q in March for Pixel phones before expanding to other phones.

Apart from the foldable phone compatibility, Android 10 also comes with some minor changes to regular Android phones, but just because they’re minor doesn’t mean they won’t change the way you use your phone.

The most awaited feature for people who often squint their eyes when they use their phone before bedtime has finally come. Google said Android 10 now has a dark mode feature, which the tech giant dubbed as “Dark Theme.” This feature not only applies to a certain app, but across your entire phone. You can also opt to have the Dark Theme enabled only on certain apps if you want to.

Android 10’s Smart Reply now suggests customized actions, such as when someone sends you an address, your phone would automatically let you open and navigate that address in Google Maps. When someone sends you a link to a YouTube video, you can easily open up the video on your YouTube app without having to copy and paste the link.

Android 10 has also updated its gesture navigation, letting users make single swipes to either go backwards, pull up the homescreen or move between tasks.

Live Caption, which automatically captions videos, podcasts and audio messages across any app, will also be available this fall, starting with Pixel devices.

Just like the upcoming iOS 13, Google has also beefed up the security features of Android 10. Everytime Android users open an app, they will be asked if they want to enable or disable their phone’s location sharing.

Google Play has also been updated so that security and privacy fixes are directly sent to phones from Google Play.
