If you are an Android enthusiast, you might have already heard that Android Q’s first beta has been released officially. If not, you would still want to know what has changed from the last version of Android to this one. Therefore, we are here to tell you about all the changes so far in Android Q Beta 1.
First of all, Android Q comes with a system-wide dark mode which is disabled by default, though. However, one way to trigger it is to enable Battery Saver mode on devices running Android Q Beta 1. Now, we are not sure if this is intended behaviour as it is possible Google might decide to enable dark mode only for battery saver mode.
Another change is that you get accent colour and theming options with Android Q Beta 1. With this, you can change your accent colours across the UI and also change the default system font. However, the options for changing the font are currently limited to Noto Serif / Source Sans Pro.
One small but useful change is that Always-on Display mode now shows the battery icon. This means you can take a glance at your battery bar and get the idea of battery remaining on your phone. You also get a battery estimate in the Quick Settings so that you can know when to plug your device for charging.
Moreover, the biggest change in Android Q so far has been the Share menu. Currently, the share menu on Android Pie is slow and often loads afterwards so there are frequent accidental clicks. However, this has been fixed in the first beta of Android Q.
Also, you should note that the screenshots will now have notches and rounded corners so that the difference between screenshots of different devices is visible. You also get a new Wi-Fi sharing option with the help of QR codes which we have already discussed here. Along with that, Google has added material design to each and every UI element in Android Q so that it looks more unified than before.
