In addition to the introduction of a new gesture navigation system, the Android 10 system also has many new important features, including stricter permissions and privacy controls, a "focus mode" (Focus Mode), that disables distracting applications for simpler notification control, better integrated home control, and a new dark theme.
Security updates such as "Project Mainline" are not visible to most users. This important update will allow Google to release key security patches directly through the app store without waitingMobile phoneManufacturers and operators release. But phones that have previously been upgraded from the Android 9 Pie to the Android 10 do not support Project Mainline.
Some features are still not available in Android 10 Final. The "Focus Mode" feature is currently only available on Android 10 Beta; another title feature called "Live title" allows users to get real-time titles for any audio or video, but will not be available until later this year. Officially released, and only supports Pixel phones for the time being.
Google says that all its applications are dedicated to supporting new dark themes, but not all of them can complete updates before the Android release deadline. For example, the email application Gmail is still developing compatibility with dark topics, which will not be supported until later this month.
However, the most compelling feature of Android 10 is the new gesture navigation system. It works very much like the iOS operating system. In the beta phase of Android 10, the new gesture navigation seems to be adjusted every few weeks, but it is now stable and will not change, which means that the left and right sides of the entire screen can be used to return to the main interface. However, Google still retains traditional three-button navigation.
Android 10 is also the first Android system not named after dessert. Google has made a shift in the name of more global inclusiveness, but it says it is not because it is too difficult to choose a dessert that begins with Q.
There are other new features in the final version of Android 10. Google said it included more gender-inclusive emoticons, app timers for specific sites, and support for audio streaming hearing aids.
Google usually launches major operating system updates within a few days, so users' Pixel phones may not receive update notifications immediately. As always, other Android device manufacturers will also announce their Android 10 upgrade plans, and many non-Pixel phone upgrades may take weeks or months to complete.
