What is Android 10?
An upgrade version of your phone structure made by google also you called it system update. Google now not named this system updates as a dessert name anymore. Since, we used to say nougat, oreo, or pie instead of 7,8 or 9. For this update no dessert any more only numerical number which is 10. Google introduce it before as Q but it still in beta version. Let’s talk about this new feature which is something really good.
What are the Android 10 Features?
I am explaining the features very quick that you get an idea of what you can do with it. Features listed by points so make sure you go through all of it.
1]. Live caption:
When you watch an English movie there is an Esub called English subtitle which is a text file with a timestamp that generates in a video conversation.
In Android 10, This feature generates an automatic caption for your every video. Even if you shoot your video with your phone it will generate subtitles without the internet. Amazing, right.
If you watching any movie in English and you can not understand the accent of their language this will generate a caption for you to understand.
2]. Smart Reply:
A useful feature in Android 10. What this feature exactly does is suggest a reply according to the message you receive from a person.
Example: Your friend sends you a message” Wanna hang out at place?” and when it pop-ups on your screen it will suggest some suitable reply where you don’t want to type the whole message and you can send by just tap on that suggestion.
3]. Sound Amplifier:
Avoid the noise with this feature.
With Sound Amplifier, your phone can boost sound, filter background noise, and fine-tune to how you hear best. Whether talking to your best friend, watching TV, or listening to a lecture.
just plug in your headphones and hear everything more clearly.
4]. Gesture Navigation:
One of the best I personally like. And trust me you gonna love this as well. This feature hides your current buttons at the bottom of the screen. Buttons like home, back, and recent apps.
With This New feature if you open an app and you want to go back simply “Right Swipe” on your screen. If you want Recent apps to see just put your thumb on the screen and “swipe up” for recent apps.
5]. Dark Theme:
Current google stock UI has a white theme. Sometimes it affects our eyes at night. With a dark theme, it will give you complete dark mode in application like a calendar or google search even in a message box.
Dark theme saves your battery power also, your eyes.
Update carry smart privacy protection. You can set up your data management with smart control that offers you to decide what kind of data and material shared.
Personalize your setting by visiting privacy in setting. Track what data is shared from web and app activity. Also, you can track how long has been these activities running.
Control location when your location has been shared with the application.
Instruct apps to not using your advertising ID to build profiles or show you personalized ads.
7]. Faster Security Updates:
Android always gives an updated patch source for updated security reasons. With Google Play system updates, important Security and Privacy fixes can now be sent directly to your phone from Google Play, just the same way all your other apps update. So you get these fixes as soon as they are available.
8]. Focus Mode:
What this does is you can simply disable or stop that distract you from your work. Just open the focus mode select the app that didn’t interrupt you while doing specific things.
While you were done with your work just tap the focus mode and enable apps and it will start working again.
9]. Family Link:
One of the best features for parents. You can track you what is your child searching on the internet or which games they play.
With this feature, you can set time for the screen. It defines how much time you give your child to play on your phone.
Track their activity by inbuilt features that show you what they are using and also on which apps they stay for long.
If they outside you can track their location where ever they go.
Android 10 Release date?
The beta version program launch in March. But now the public version of android 10 has been launched on September 3.
You are wondering why your device not getting an update? The answer is here
Each OEM[Original Equipment Manfucaturer] must develop its own version of the update for each phone and work with carriers to release it, which can take months.
The update must be released this September but, not all devices are getting an instant until your mobile brand developer make it. So it is possible you get an update till the end of 2019 or maybe in 2020.
Example: If I am using “Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2” and the updated version is Pie. But I only upgraded my phone when Asus gives me an android 10 Update.
