List of devices receiving Android 10 in the first phase
Android, the leading smartphone Operating software with the maximum number of users worldwide. The tenth-anniversary edition of the Linux based open-source software has been named as Android 10. This is the first time Android has cheated their sweet based terminology. Although there is no detail about this move to temporary or permanent, we expect it to be permanent.
Announced at I/O 2019, Android 10 brings system-wide Dark Theme, which essentially will help in reducing eye strain as well as save battery life. Users will be able to activate the system-wide dark theme from Settings > Display, the new Quick Settings tile, or by turning on Battery Saver. Apart from changing the system UI to dark, supporting apps will also show their new dark theme.
Android 10 brings enhanced location controls allowing users to control how apps access device location. It will offer more granular options to choose from – like grant access all the time, never, or only when the app is open.
Smart Reply and Actions
Also new are the inclusion of Smart Reply and Actions into the Notifications framework, offering system-provided smart replies and actions inserted directly into notifications by default. App developers will be able to supply their own replies and actions.
Gesture navigation mode options
Android 10 also brings a new fully gestural navigation mode that eliminates the navigation bar area, with the aim of allowing “apps and games to use the full screen to deliver their content.” Back, Home and Recents can be accessed with edge swipes rather than visible buttons. These can now be switched on from Settings > System > Gestures.
