Android Q lets you get security updates without pesky reboots

In Android Q, you will have the option to share location only while a data is being actively used.

We've asked, and Google has listened. Below, we'll cover all the highlights from the event, and everything you need to know. Chromebooks have been able to run Android apps for years now, but the experience is often sub-par, simply because developers don't have big displays in mind when building those apps. This might not be a bad time to upgrade, honestly, since this release arrives with a ton of new features.

At its I/O developer conference today, Google shared some more details about the next iteration of Android, the OS that is now used on more than 2.5 billion active devices.

Coupled with that improved on-device machine learning is Live Caption, a new feature targeted at deaf and hard of hearing users.

Entry level devices running Android Q will now support encryption, providing more security for them. Considering how often we read about and report on malware and ransomware and adware and compromised apps, this seems more like a necessity than an impressive feat.

With the minutes trickling away, it was the substitutes who combined to grab Liverpool a huge, critical goal in their season.

Dark theme is coming, and it will be turned on when you activate battery saver, or manually through a quick settings tile of its own.

To get Android Q Beta 3 on a Pixel handset, just enroll your device on the Android Beta website. This is particularly useful if you're in a rush, as it saves having to load each app individually. And finally, security updates will be delivered directly over-the-air on Android Q, and you won't need to restart your device to apply them (which is the same way Google apps are updated).

Also powered by on-device machine learning is Smart Reply, which will seamlessly work for all messaging apps in Android Q, providing helpful suggestions for replies, but also actions. There has also been a 27% drop in nighttime phone use with Wind Down mode. If you're familiar with Google's dedicated phone app, Android Auto, then this will look quite familiar to you.

We're doing even more in Android Q, with nearly 50 new features and changes focused on security and privacy.
