Android Q Beta brings Screen Recording

Google releases first Android Q beta for Pixel phones

As for Android Q's official name, we still have no clue.

Google released the first beta of Android Q yesterday, and as expected, there are a bunch of major features. With Android Q, the Mountain View-based tech giant has made even more enhancements to protect users, and numerous upgrades are to Google's Project Strobe.

You can install the Android Q beta on any Pixel phone, going all the way back to the 2016 first-gen version. The Android Q comes with several nifty features like - more control over location, more privacy protections, ways to engage users, support for foldable smartphones and innovative new screens, sharing shortcuts, changed settings panels, connectivity, Wi-Fi performance mode, improved peer-to-peer and internet connectivity, among others. Apart from that, Google will also let you decide how your app is shown on foldable screens. Not anymore. Android Q gives you a handy option to share your WiFi connection details through a QR code. We should hear more on that in the upcoming betas.

If you're using any Pixel phone though, you're set. Google says that it has extended support for Android Q to Pixel and Pixel XL on popular demand.

A feature called Sharing Shortcuts will help make sharing in Android Q faster.

Android Q will also prevent apps from accessing shared files unless you want them to, which means you'll be able to control the way apps access photos, videos, and other data. The Android Runtime (ART) in Android Q can pre-compile parts of an app to reduce launch times. Don't have a Pixel device? Further, the user will not receive separate monthly security updates while on a beta build. Those interested in privacy will take a close look at the new authorization management system, it should be simplified and will allow some interesting changes, including the impossibility of using localization when the application is not in use. (If you don't own one of the aforementioned phones, you can still check it out via an Android emulator.) You can find step-by-step instructions here.

"Android is right at the center of this innovation cycle, and thanks to the broad ecosystem of partners across billions of devices, Android's helping push the boundaries of hardware and software bringing new experiences and capabilities to users".
