Android 10 Update: Feature List
With the Android 10 update, there are quite a few goodies that the device owners will be welcoming. Here are some of the noteworthy features with the said Android build.
Taking a clue out of Apple’s book, Google introduced new full-screen gesture navigation. You could now perform the back action by just swiping across the left or right side of your screen, launch Google Assistant by swiping from the bottom left and right corners, etc. Furthermore, you could now swipe up from the bottom of the screen to go to the home screen or swipe up and hold to access the Recent menu.
This was perhaps one of the most requested features, and Google finally decided to pay head. Beginning with Android 10, you now get a system-wide dark mode. Well, that’s not all. From the Developer Options, you could turn on the overriding force dark mode feature that forces all the apps to enable the dark mode, even if they don’t officially support it.
Up until now, you only had the option to allow for permission or deny. However beginning with Android 10, there’s a new addition: Allow only while using the app. With this, what happens is that the app will only be able to access the said permission till its running in the foreground, once you minimize it, the app would no longer be able to make use of these permissions. You will again have to permit it the next time you use the app. As of now, this feature is limited to Location permission, with a chance for further expansions in Android 11.
With Digital Wellbeing now baked into the Android system, there’s a plentitude of benefits to make full use of. For example, you could set usage timer for each of the apps, or you could also make use of some parental controls added to this Wellbeing menu. Likewise, Focus Mode is another handy addition to it.
