Android Q brings new features to your smartphone, the most expected one being probably the dark mode but it's not the only new feature this version has in store.

The UI changes include options to set up accent colors and fonts in developer settings. No more turning your router this way and that to find the sticker with the password on it. According to that sketch and a new leaked render, however, Google may be planning to finally release new flagship phones with designs that aren't stuck in the past. If the render is indeed accurate, it would indicate that Google is going with an in-display sensor like many other flagship Android phones.

In these super early phases, where the software hasn't even been announced officially yet, it gives Google chance to iron out some issues before they even give us the lowdown on what exactly has changed.

Numerous previously announced features for foldable phones like the Galaxy Fold are also built into Android Q. For developers, that means supporting new paused and resumed states that allow multiple apps to work on a larger display. "We're making Dynamic Depth an open format for the ecosystem, and we're working with our device-maker partners to make it available across devices running Android Q and later". One of Android's own developers stated that this year's list of manufacturers and devices will be longer than last year.

Below is a rundown of some of the new features in Android Q.

How can I get the Android Q beta? It allows anyone enrolled to update their Android devices to the preview and receive over-the-air updates.

Google is focusing on modernising the Android ecosystem to enhance platform-wide security and improve performance, and when Android 10 is deployed it will warn users if they run an app which targets platforms older than Android 6.0.

That's it, it's so simple. To do so, follow the steps mentioned on this page carefully.

If you are on your Pixel smartphone, it is still possible to activate this mode, but of course it won't be optimal. Perhaps the web giant will break tradition and go the savory route this time and call it Android Quiche? This is something most devices have for ages, and with the Q update this feature will be natively supported. Hopefully you'll be able to appreciate these hidden changes indirectly, but in case they're too subtle or you want a general run-down of what's new, here are the major additions. The design in question seems to retain the company's overall design identity from the well-received Pixel 3 lineup, however, it houses a dual-lens camera at the back.
