Android Q Promises To Make Your Smartphone Safer And Smarter

Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Security researchers have discovered a new form of adware buried in more than 200 hundred Android apps listed in the Google Play Store that may have infected in excess of 100 million users.

Android Q does bring quite a few changes to Android, including a renewed focus on privacy. The new operating system boasts plenty of great new features - and it's likely that many more will be added to it over time as the betas progress. It features rounded corners and straight sides, top and bottom. The handset was among the first ones to come with Android Oreo out of the box.

Technically, that's "Android Q (Go edition)" - brackets and all, I'm not kidding - but it's a ridiculous name and I won't use it.

Location data can deliver awesome, rich mobile experiences for users on Android such as finding a restaurant nearby, tracking the distance of a run, and getting turn-by-turn directions as you drive. This should hopefully speed up the overall sharing process. This whitelist/blacklist method is so bad that the antivirus app detected the user's default app as malicious if they didn't include the package name in its whitelist. Right now, users can either grant or deny location access to an app which leads to many apps silently tracking the location of their users in the background.

Louisan learns his uncle was wounded in New Zealand mosque attacks
He sustained a head injury, which was not believed to be serious, and was kept in hospital for treatment, the police added. Following the attack, New Zealand's national security level was changed from "low" to "high".

One of the features many phone makers have been highlighting over the past year or two is the ability to use the fancy new camera systems to create interesting effects with different focus and depth effects. A new analysis from Austrian antivirus testers AV-Comparatives claims that most AV apps on Android are ineffective, and some are downright frauds.

Would you use AntiVirus that detect itself as risky app? It could make for much more customizable photo editing on smartphones, and this could also enable more augmented reality effects in photos.

There will also be support for the emerging open source video codec AV1 and HDR10+. That's good news for your data plan. Maybe the Pixel 4 XL will inherit these, or maybe Google will upgrade them in a way. Starting in Android Q, users have a new option to give an app access to location only when the app is being used; in other words, when the app is in the foreground. Samsung offers a similar feature on its new Galaxy S10 series.

This means it is suggested you only download the Android Q beta on a Pixel device if it is not your primary phone.
