XDA has been able to get to the early version of Android Q, confirming that the next version of Google of our favorite operating system will include dark mode as expected. But many other secrets were hidden in XDA's image, including the much-needed application permissions that could be a desktop interface of Samsung DeX and a bunch of smaller features.
The outdated image of Android Q includes a new "Set Dark Mode" option in Settings -> Display, thanks to daytime auto-tuning. Take this switch and you are greeted with a dark dark (but not a very black) theme similar to what is already being done by some other primary Google apps – although XDA has not tested whether this setting has enabled the mode in those apps yet .
Dark gray like this may show problems with uniformity in lower quality OLED displays.
In addition to the new dark mode, the XDA has unveiled some substantial changes to the Q for Android Q model. In addition to providing a much more enjoyable preview of permission requests – almost reminiscent of Digital Wellbeing – the way the permissions work is changed. For example, a location can only be provided while the app is in use, rather than a blanket yes / no.
The new version of "desktop mode" developers is also featured in these images on Android Q, which XDA assumptions can be used for something like Samsung's DeX or Superbook software. The setting does not trigger any behavior when turning on an external display, although it may be a space reserved or depends on other software or hardware to work. The XDA notes that while the setting is enabled, Wi-Fi will stop functioning.
Other new and returned settings in the Developer Options menu have also been revealed, such as returning support to a free-form multi-window, setting up a game update package that wants to select graphics drivers, built-in screen recorder (yay! ) Always a wallpaper for Always On Screen – a feature that has been moved to Settings -> Display -> Lock Screen.
There are also some accessibility options that regulate how long messages such as heads-up notifications for other actions are also available, as well as new "touch-off" tiles for quick settings that prohibits all radio stations, two new lock settings on screen and options in an embedded file filtering application by type.
The XDA still digs in the image it has for more information, so be sure to check back later to see if anything else has been found, and make sure to click on their cover for more photos and details.
