Google's latest Android Q to bring more iPhone-like Gestures

This method of accessing the said interface may be slightly slower than the one used by Android 9 Pie, yet it also streamlines several other options and makes room for extra gestures. The company has detailed some of the most significant features that are brought along with the new OS.

A modification of the Pixel Launcher APK pre-loaded onto the premier Android Q build allows for an entirely new set of gestures to be accessed.

Will we see a full dark mode by the time Android Q hits stable?

Developers can prepare for this change by taking a look at the new features in the first Q beta release. This means that the stack of notifications can be moved anywhere on the screen as per the user's requirement. The first video embedded below shows off the revamped gestures with these hidden Pixel Launcher flags.

Google has also decided that Android Q will stop tracking contacts based on the frequency of interaction. For example, you can only quick switch apps in a single direction, and the swipe up gesture to reveal the recent apps overview often results in the app drawer showing instead. However, the back button is still present which could be removed by Google in the final Android Q version. Whichever path Google chooses, though, it seems that the back button is at least here to stay.

Pixel 3 is Google's most premium flagship and its price reflects the fact. A new report has come out to show that two-thirds of all these apps don't work as advertised - they're all frauds. These devices will be running the Android 10 OS (Android Q). It's a simple change to the user experience that likely needed about a gazillion changes in the Android code to implement. XDA discovered different clock faces, like a text clock, that can be enabled with adb. This adware appeared in the form of an advert kit -RXDrioder which the apps use to control adverts on the user's device. Google's built-in Play Protect feature was a bit lower at 68.8 percent, but it's created to be more conservative. The Pixel 4 series isn't expected to be released for another seven months, and we have yet to see any solid rumors about what Google might have in store for Android fans this year. Stay tuned, we will update you as the year progresses!
