Everything You Need To Know About Android 10
- 04 Sep 2019
Recently, Google has released the first stable update for Android 10. The software has not received the traditional ‘dessert; name, and so far is only available for Pixel smartphones.
Android 10 also contains over 50 security and privacy improvements that will benefit not only users but also IT administrators. And if your company uses Google Enterprise, it seems like Android 10 will make your life easier.
While Android 10 is being released for Pixel devices, corporate users can already begin to figure out how this will fit into their working flow.
The first thing you will definitely love about Android 10 is that now you can create a work profile to separate it from personal usage. IT administrators will still be able to manage devices owned by the company and BYOD, and employees will be able to maintain the confidentiality of applications and functions that are not intended for work assignments.
In addition, there is now a privacy section in which you can view all the settings for using the Internet, applications, and add control, as well as manage location and data use.
Google developers fulfilled their promises that they made at the I/O conference in May 2019 and added the following functions to the new version of Android:
- Live Caption. A special option that creates subtitles in real-time;
- Dark Mode. A dark theme for the interface, which can be activated both for individual applications and for the entire system;
- New gesture navigation, which allows you to clear notifications or open an additional menu with a wave of your hand left and right on the screen;
- Smart Reply. Smart Reply creates possible answers for text messages. It scans incoming messages and offers three basic response options, depending on the context.
- The built-in screen recording function.
In addition, the company paid attention to the security of users' personal data. Android 10 will automatically scan and monitor which apps use your data and notify you if one of the programs continues to monitor geolocation even after disconnection.
Later, the developers promise to add Focus Mode, which will temporarily disable some applications that distract you from work.
