In the tech world, 2019 is in full swing whether you’re doubtful or not. The smartphone space, especially, is buzzing with new terms and trends. In that line of thought, the Android OS will be getting a new version this year which will be called Android Q.

It’ll be the update to the last year released Android P OS also known as Android 9.0 Pie OS. As a result, new features, bug fixes, and improvements will be brought to the table. This is what we’ll be looking at in the article.

By the way, you should be conversant with the terminology of the Android OS. They’re named in alphabetical order with respect to names of desserts. Yes, desserts as in eatables. This year’s version, the tenth Android OS or Android 10 or Android Q OS has a list of possible names. We’ll be looking at them in the header below.

Likely Names of Android Q OS

Now, these are names that Google, Android’s maker could use: Quiche, Quesadilla, Quinoa, Quinoa Pudding, Quenelle, Quail, Qottab, Quaker Oats, Quesito.

In as much as I’d have loved Quaker Oats to be the appellation of this new OS, the Quiche is the most probable; according to reports though. Besides, Google doesn’t use a dessert with two words as the OS’s name. Thus, Quaker Oats is out of the equation. Notwithstanding, the cereal is blissful *winks*.

Five Expected Features of Android Q OS

Without further ado, let’s dig in to see the new babies Android Q is expected to greet us with.

  • Dark Mode

For those with eye issues whenever they see a smartphone’s screen for too long, the Dark mode is here to be your knight in shining armour. The primary advantage of this feature is that even it doesn’t rely on third-party apps possessing the feature or not. A couple of third-party apps like Xender and Telegram support this Dark Mode.

A Product Manger at Google, Lukasz Zbylut further confirmed the feature. He stated:

“DARK mode is an approved Q feature. The Q team wants to ensure that all preloaded apps support dark mode natively. In order to ship dark mode successfully, we need all UI elements to be ideally themed dark by May 2019.”

  • Multi-resume

This is an improvement to the split-screen functionality of apps introduced in the Android 7.0 Nougat OS. It’s better in the sense that users can be active on both apps opened in a tab which is unlike the split-screen whereby only one app is active.

“[With Multi-resume] All the apps will run simultaneously, independent of your interaction with the other opened app screens. This will enable the present generation to enjoy working with multiple apps on their smartphones, i.e., do multitasking”.

  • Assisted Dialing

The impact of this feature is that your phone will automatically detect country codes of numbers you dial in your dial pad. That’s an interesting one.

  • Desktop feel

With this on board, users can use tablets as though they were PCs. This feature is otherwise known as the Desktop experience. Samsung latest flagships have what’s known as Samsung DeX feature that converts the smartphone into a computer. Reports have it that Google will make the Desktop experience similar to Samsung’s.

  • Warning on “old app” installation

Since the Android Q is destined for enhanced security, apps that are separately designed for Android 5.0 Lollipop, Android KitKat and older generations won’t be installed just like that. A warning indicating it’s an old app will be given to the user.
