Google officially confirmed a bunch of features coming with the Android 10. And we all know that upcoming Samsung new OS One UI 2.0 based on Android 10. So all the features of Android 10 will be seen in One UI 2.0. According to Google, the One UI 2.0 will come with the following features:
Next OS will switch to a desktop mode when you connect your phone to an external monitor. You’ll be able to use free from multi-windows to open and move apps anywhere on the screen.
The next OS update will include support for “Deep Press” interactions on the screen. The idea is that you’ll be able to activate separate actions by pressing harder on the screen. It’s different to a regular short press, or a long press, in that it’s based on how hard you press.
“The current even stream represents the user intentionally pressing harder on the screen. This classification type should be used to accelerate the long-press behavior.”
In the next OS update, Google offering new app permissions that give you more control over the amount of information you share with apps.
For example, apps now need explicit permission to track your location in the background. With features like runtime permissions, you can only allow access to location when an app is running, limiting the amount of information that particular app can gather in the background.
Foldable phone support
This helps get apps and games to support foldable phones. According to Google: “To help your apps to take advantage of these and other large-screen devices, we’ve made a number of improvements in next OS, including changes to onResume and onPause to support multi-resume and notify your app when it has focus. We’ve also changed how the resizable activity manifest attribute works, to help you manage how your app is displayed on foldable and large screens.”
With One UI 2.0, you’ll see a floating settings UI pane that can be automatically triggered by apps. For example, if Chrome detects that the Wi-Fi network doesn’t have connectivity, it’ll show a settings window with options for Wi-Fi, mobile data, and airplane mode. The feature is designed to make it easier to change settings without leaving an app.
Share content fast
Sharing Shortcuts lets you quickly jump into another app to share content, with the share menu now loading instantly. It’s an evolution of how App Shortcuts worked in Pie and should make it that much easier to share content. From Google:
“Developers can publish share targets that launch a specific activity in their apps with content attached, and these are shown to users in the share UI. Because they’re published in advance, the share UI can load instantly when launched.”
Share WiFi with QR codes
With One UI 2.0, you’ll be able to easily share your Wi-Fi details via a QR code. When you select a network name to view more details about the connection, you’ll see an option to share the Wi-Fi details using a QR code.
Always On Display is getting a few tweaks with Android Q. The battery indicator is now located at the top right of the display instead of the bottom, and you’ll be able to see currently playing music.
Bubbles are a new feature in One UI 2.0. With bubbles, users can easily multi-task from anywhere on their device. Bubbles are built into the Notification system. They float on top of other app content and follow the user wherever they go. Bubbles can be expanded to reveal app functionality and information and can be collapsed when not being used.
Dual SIM Dual Standby
Google has offered eSIM support on the Pixels for a few years, but you couldn’t use the eSIM and the physical SIM at the same time. It looks like that’s changing with Android Q, with the Pixel 3 now offering Dual SIM, Dual Standby compatibility. That means you can use the eSIM and physical SIM in a dual SIM configuration, but only one can be in active use.
- Google is including limits on the access apps will have to photos, videos, audio, and downloaded files on devices.
- Android Q will have more control over how apps resume and pause when running in the background.
- A new Settings Panel API that’ll let developers push a pop-menu for settings like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and NFC, so users won’t have to exit apps to go to settings and back.
