Android Q Privacy and Operational Changes – What’s New?

Google has created the 10th edition of its OS. This version has been known as Android Q until recently but the designation has been shifted to Android 10 for better universal user understanding. As opposed to naming it Android Tiramisu, following the dessert theme Google was famous for.

Android has greatly evolved in its 10th edition and has grown from 85.1 to 86.7 percent in the world’s use of operating systems. It’s just amazing how the platform has taken root in pretty much all of the world’s devices.


The major issue with cheeky apps is that they mainly access the user’s location to perform unauthorized actions, often in the background. Google has limited the permissions that third-party apps enjoyed. The user will decide to afford any sort of permission manually. The system file picker can be used to assign access to a specific file for any given app.

Operational changes

Features like the back button have been scrapped and replaced with gesture control navigation.  The world is slowly going buttonless, at least in terms of mobile devices. The move will be somewhat confusing to some users as there will be no icons to explain how to navigate the system.

Cosmetic changes

You might be aware that Android Q has suffered a change in cosmetics. The font is different, along with the logo, and not only that. The eagle-eyed user will spot major differences in the UI as all the corners have been rounded. This affects features like Dark Mode and custom themes.

Focus mode

In case you’re at the job and you actually need to get some work done, Android Q has you covered. A new option called Focus Mode can be activated to eliminate the time you spend on apps that can distract you, such as social media apps. Focus Mode will not allow certain apps to be opened while it is enabled.
