Google launches Android 10 landing page a few hours from release

Google launches Android 10 landing page a few hours from release”

If you want to get a quick oversight of the new features check out the Android 10 website or the Google developers blog.

Google announced Android Q in March, changed it to Android 10 in August, and has allowed beta testers to trial the software before today's official launch for Pixel devices. Google says that Android 10'a dark theme also helps saving battery life.

The page does list everything new in Android 10, including Dark theme, which you toggle on and off in the page itself to see how it will look in the screen demos of other new features.

Android 10 is here at last. "And so now we're back where we started, if a device manufacturer no longer supports a device with updates, that device won't upgrade to Android 10 and is in the same position", Bakken tells Android Authority. The two-button gesture setup from Android Pie didn't earn many fans, so Google has reworked it in Android 10 to function more like the iPhone. Many others, though, like Google's push to compartmentalize certain Android components for faster updates through the Play Store, should be much less intrusive.

Android 10 also introduces an improved Smart Reply experience that works better with third-party apps, a new Live Caption feature that automatically captions videos, podcasts, and audio messages for improved accessibility, a built-in Sound Amplifier, improved and more granular privacy controls, and a new Focus Mode that lets you silent all the distracting apps.

There are several factors to blame for lagging adoption, such as carriers failing to push the updates out in time, older phones that have been abandoned by manufacturers, and brands simply being too lazy to support their devices.

If you own a Pixel phone, you should expect an‌ Over-The-Air update really soon. But we're also hearing rumours that OnePlus is putting its foot on the pedal in making the new update available to the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro.

Another thing to keep in mind is Project Treble.
