The Top Android 10 features you should know

Android 10 is here! With this release, we focused on making your everyday life easier with features powered by on-device machine learning, as well as supporting new technologies like Foldables and 5G. 

Android 10 featurs

At the same time, with almost 50 changes related to privacy and security, Android 10 gives you greater protection, transparency, and control over your data.

Here are the 10 things you should know, centered on innovation, security and privacy and digital wellbeing:

1.Dark Theme

Announced at I/O 2019, Android 10 brings system-wide Dark Theme, which essentially will help in reducing eye strain as well as save battery life.

Users will be able to activate system-wide dark theme from Settings > Display, the new Quick Settings tile, or by turning on Battery Saver.

Apart from changing the system UI to dark, supporting apps will also show their new dark theme.

2.Enhanced Privacy Controls

In terms of privacy, Android 10 brings a brand new Privacy section within Settings, and this section includes Activity Controls, Location History, and Ad Settings, amongst other options.

It also brings new features including options for when to grant an app location permission.

Privacy features also include blocking unwanted app launches from the background, and in an effort to prevent tracking, Android 10 will limit access to "non-resettable device identifiers" apart from randomising MAC addresses.

3.Location Controls

Android 10 brings enhanced location controls allowing users to control how apps access device location.

It will offer more granular options to choose from – like grant access all the time, never, or only when the app is open.

4.Focus mode

Focus mode is also a new Android feature that will be made available to Android 9.0 Pie users as well, alongside Android 10.

A new feature for the company's Digital Wellbeing initiative, Focus Mode lets users silence apps they find distracting until they leave the mode.

The new mode can be quickly turned on and off via Quick Tiles.

5.Live Caption

Live Caption is perhaps the most interesting new feature in Android 10.

With a single tap, Live Caption will automatically caption videos, podcasts and audio messages across any app—even stuff you record yourself.

6.Bubble notifications

One of the most interesting new Android 10 features is a completely new style of notifications, called Bubbles.

Bubbles allow users to quickly multitask while carrying on a conversation. Floating icons will appear on screen for chat notifications. They can remain there so a user can pick up a conversation at any time.

Bubbles will be prioritised for communication notifications, and users will be able to pin them to their home screens for continual access.

7.Smart Reply and Actions

Also new are the inclusion of Smart Reply and Actions into the Notifications framework, offering system-provided smart replies and actions inserted directly into notifications by default.

By default all notifications from messaging apps will let users quickly send useful contextual information as a reply, or launch an app, such as Google Maps, if the received message contains an address.

8.Redesigned share sheets

Android 10 has a completely new share sheet, which is the UI that appears when you want to send content from within an app, such as a link or a snippet of text, either to a specific person or to another app in order to do something with it.

The new sheet is simpler to use and makes the available options more obvious. It's also designed to be quicker.

The sheet will have a preview of content right at the top, so users can get an idea of what recipients will see.

9.Gesture navigation mode options

Android 10 also brings a new fully gestural navigation mode that eliminates the navigation bar area, with the aim of allowing “apps and games to use the full screen to deliver their content.”

Back, Home, and Recents can be accessed with edge swipes rather than visible buttons. These can now be switched on from Settings > System > Gestures.

Now, swiping up from the bottom of the screen takes the user to the Home screen, holding brings up Recents, while swiping from the screen's left or right edge triggers the Back action.

10.Native Support for Foldable Devices

Android 10 also brings native support for foldable devices, and in its demo I/O 2019, Google showed a cool continuity feature wherein games switched from a smaller screen to a larger tablet-like screen seamlessly.

With the impending arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, this support will be useful and extend support to more such phones in the future.

Some Other features include improved Family Link, Sound Amplifier, as well as improved security updates.
