Android 10 is Live and Officially Rolling out to Smartphones

Google has officially released Android 10 to the public and it’s rolling out to devices…

Android 10 brings new features, key ones being a system-wide dark theme and a new swipe-based navigation. Below are few of the features that Android 10 brings to your phone:

Live Caption

With Live Caption, videos including those you record yourself, podcasts, and audio messages get captioned when activated. And the best thing is that it doesn’t require Wi-Fi or data.

Smart Reply

With Android 9 Pie, you received suggested responses when you receive a message or mail. Android 10 takes it even further with Smart Reply. A message containing a location or address will now include suggestions to open related apps such as Maps for directions to the place.

Sound Amplifier

Android 10

This is an app that boosts sounds, filters background noises and provides an overall better audio experience when you plug in your headphones to watch a video or listen to an audio file.

Gesture Navigation

Android 10 brings a new gesture navigation system that includes swipes and pulls.

Dark Theme

Google finally listened and has now added a dark theme to Android. Google says it uses true black for the dark theme which should bring improvements to battery life and also reduce the strain on your eyes. Google Apps like Gmail, photos, and the calendar take on a dark theme when you switch.

New Emojis

Android 10 brings up to 65 new emojis including gender-inclusive ones for pre-existing emojis.

Privacy Controls

With Android10, users now have more controls over their privacy. You can customize which app gets access to your location and when. You can choose what data is stored and for how long. You can also opt-out of personalized ads.

Faster Security Updates

With Android 10, security updates and fixes will be rolled out via Google Play (Play Store) and you will receive them just the way your apps receive new updates.

Digital Wellbeing

Focus Mode which allows you to minimize distractions and pause preselected apps. Digital Wellbeing also gets parental controls allowing you to set screen time limits, see device location, and manage what they see.

You can check the official website for the full list of features Android 10 comes with.

  1. Privacy control, what a joke, google will offer you privacy? Who believes that???
    Dark mode is a cool feature though even a Android no-goer like myself still digs that. But come on!!! Gesture control in 2019 and it is highlighted as a new feature? how funny is that, BB10 OS that died long ago has that, Nokia N9, Meego, Sailfish, and so on, Gesture base is getting so old. Well Android users, welcome to the digital world.
    I do wish you all a good day, thank Prof for the info, and do hope my views don’t upset some of you, as it is my perception of freedom of speech, so to speak
