With the Android Studio method, you can easily install and run Android 10 Q on your Windows 10 PC. Before starting the main topic, let’s have some information about Android 10 and its features.
Android 10 (Q)
Android 10, formerly knows as Android Q is the latest Android operating system from Google. Android 10 is the 10th major release and the 17th mobile operating system version of Android. It was released on September 3, 2019.
Android 10 includes new gesture controls, dark mode, and some impressive new accessibility features. The beta has been released on two dozen phones from manufacturers like Samsung, Nokia, Huawei, so OnePlus, and that’s a good sign that those devices and perhaps other devices from those companies will be upgraded to the new operating system in a timely manner— as Android phones are still too large.
Android 10 (Formerly Know as Android Q) Features
Here are some of the best Android 10 features:
1. Dard Mode
Android 10 users will require dark mode to darken everything from notifications to settings. Like previous dark themes incorporated into stock Android experience, however, it also applies to all devices that support it.
2. Focus Mode
Following last year’s launch of its Digital Wellbeing tool kit, Google is adding a new feature to help users concentrate without interruption. Focus mode, which launches in beta with Android 10, allows users to select specific apps that they want to miss over a period of time, such as messaging or news apps.
3. Wi-Fi and QR codes
Sharing your Wi-Fi network password with friends or asking for theirs may be embarrassing. Android 10 has a new feature that lets you create a QR code for your Wi-Fi network or scan a QR code to connect to the Wi-Fi network directly in your device’s Wi-Fi settings. To use this new feature, go to the Wi-Fi settings and then select your home network, followed by the Share button with a small QR code just above it.
4. Live Caption
Through taping the volume button and the icon below the volume knob, Live Caption will automatically add subtitles for videos, podcasts, and audio messages-even for the audio that you are recording yourself. Real-time captions are generated through on-device machine learning and will appear as soon as speech is detected, without the need for Wi-Fi or network connection.
5. Gesture Navigation
Android 10 brings to the Android platform gestural navigation. Instead of using Android’s traditional navigation keys, users swipe and push across the display to go return, back to the home screen, open the app drawer, and activate Google Assistant. Google proceeded to modify and change the behavior of gestures in Android 10 in the final beta release and then tried to explain its rationale. Using it is still frustrating.
6. Smart Reply
If you’re using Gmail, you’re probably familiar with that mail client’s Smart Response functionality, which recommends responses based on how you already respond to messages. Google-operated in Android 10 with a similar feature, baking Smart Reply into the notification system of the OS. That means that you will receive suggestions for replies to notifications, but it’s not just a pity to receive replies to text messages. Android 10 will also suggest relevant actions— opening maps using similar types of local processing, for example, when you’re sent an address.
