Android Q Beta 3 adds location sharing reminders for background apps

New Leak Suggests Google Pixel 3a Devices Will Be About Cameras and Nothing Else

This is meant to be used when you want to focus on getting things done without being constantly distracted by notifications.

Android users will be able to kick the tires on Android Auto's new look this summer.

The update also brings improved navigation gestures.

Cuthbertson reiterated an earlier Google announcement that Android Q would be created to support future foldable devices, like those announced by Samsung and Huawei. Google has now updated the connectivity suite with new features and a revised interface.

It also being Live Captions, a feature which will automatically add captions to media playing audio on your phone.

Above you'll see some demonstrations of this new system in action.

As expected, Android Q will also be featuring an updated gesture-based navigation experience. Due to security issues with allowing these SAWs (system alert windows) they will soon be deprecated - Android Go devices will no longer grant this permission to users. There are now two gestures: Swiping up from the bottom of the screen takes the user to the Home screen, holding brings up Recents. Swipe down from the home screen to reveal your app drawer.

Honestly, it's probably a good thing that Android Q's UI has some similarities to iOS. The reason for Google's success in the smartphone market can also be attributed to the Pixel's camera setup. Android Q is a big part of that effort. You can now choose to share location data with apps only while they're in use.

The reminder won't appear for an app in the foreground, so you'll only see it when background apps are reading your location.

Google is rolling out its first major update for Android Auto since the app was introduced five years ago.

A more concrete announcement - and significant for developers in attendance - Google also promised a "complete refresh" of the Play Store on Android TV.

With the music open, you'll get turn-by-turn information in the bottom bar. Google also mentioned better support for upcoming 5G phones, but didn't really say much more than that.

Specifically, what Flutter does is it enables developers to build "native" mobile apps for both mobile operating systems faster than they can with traditional platforms.
