Android Q When are we getting it? Which Xperias will be updated?

Android Q Beta

Android Q Beta 1 has been released, as of right now only Pixel devices will have the chance to play with it 

 

Privacy it's one of the main focus on the update:

 

Device Location control at app level, you can allow it to access your location all the time or only when you are using the app (I really like this option)

More control on app access to Media and Download files 

 

Background apps will have priority notification setting, no more missing calls, alarms, messages, etc

 

Improvements for foldable/double screens (doesn't quite apply to Xperias, yet? we'll see, make it happen Sony)

 

Sharing shortcuts, I don't see much difference but it'll be welcome, I'm looking you Sony's Album app 

 

Settings panel, now this will be great, no more going through the main settings menu, we'll have to wait and see how its integrated and how intuitive.

 

There are more and more improvements, you can read it all here >>> Source

Re: XZ PREMIUM AND ANDROID Q

We just hope 1 more just 1 more android update for xz premium.. Badly needed new dark ui of android Q.. This too much white kills my eyes and phone battery.  And besides just don't leave snapdragon 835 devices easily. This device is so much premium and deserves another update.  Just hoping .

Android 10 'Q' when are we getting it :Wink:

Just read an article about upcoming changes in Android Q.

It made me think: "what have we been losing in recent years that was worth retaining"

 

What about

- automatic adding a shortcut of newly installed apps to the home screen.

- the volume rocker seeing where one could set the device in 'do not disturbe mode' at once just by pressing volume down.

- Xperia actions, the very handy help for commute, abroad etc. (sorry this is not Q related, just missing it)

 

Anyway: what kind of handy, useful software features are you missing most nowadays?

Re: XZ PREMIUM AND ANDROID Q

Bonjour,

Fan de sony depuis la game Z et aujourd'hui j'en suis à XZ premium MERCI à sony de ne pas nous privé de la mise à jour à savoir android Q se serait domage pour ses utilisateurs mais envers la marque en elle même car le XZ premium reste un smartphone haute game de la marque sony! Et serait tant que sony penses à developpé son propre système d'éxploitation pour ses appareils ne plus dépendre de google! Comme le fait apple et black berry! Sony est camapable de fabriqué un console de jeu avec son propre système d'exploitation qui fait la une dans le monde entier ce n'est un système pour ses propres smartphones qui lui en sera difficile d'en develloper merci cordialement 

 

Hello,

Fan sony since the game Z and today I'm at XZ premium THANKS to sony not to us private update to know android Q would be rotting for its users but the brand itself because the XZ premium is a high-end smartphone of the brand sony! And as long as sony thinks about developing his own operating system for his devices no longer depend on google! Like apple and black berry! Sony is able to make a game console with its own operating system that is the world's leading it is a system for its own smartphones that will be difficult to develloper thank you cordially
