Google Introduces Updated Android Auto, New Driving Mode For Assistant

New Leak Suggests Google Pixel 3a Devices Will Be About Cameras and Nothing Else

This is another feature we've been waiting on, so Android Q continues to deliver the goods.

"This means that you can get the latest security fixes, privacy enhancements and consistency improvements as soon as they're available, without having to reboot your phone".

Google's annual developer conference, I/O 2019, kicked off with big updates to its key services, ranging from Google Search, Assistant to Android. With the Map open, you'll get music controls at the bottom.

Additionally, Google has implemented a new notification center, which it said compiles all phone calls and messages together.

China confirms vice-premier Liu He will visit USA for trade talks

Boeing Board's Lack of Expertise Under Scrutiny in 737 MAX Safety Oversight
At the same time , the company is now working on a software update to tame the over-eager MCAS system. Boeing initially chose not to inform airlines insisting the AOA was not necessary for safe flight.

Google has also previously announced that you will be able to choose to share location data with apps only while they're in use. It's no longer static, with white buttons on a black background; instead, it's dynamic and lets some apps appear on the navigation bar for improved control.

Android Q Beta 3 is now out for the Google Pixel, the Pixel XL, the Pixel 2, the Pixel 2 XL, the Pixel 3, the Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, but the other handsets mentioned above can also enrol here. The navigation app of choice also remains active. Downloads will also require the user to select a location via the system file picker. Google says. Going forward, the firm will add support for basic text features (copy/paste, selection), plugins, Progressive Web Apps, DevTools debugging, and more. Because Android Auto runs entirely from your connected phone, the new UI will come in the form of an app update.

There are other small issues about Android Q's dark theme that still need work.

As the first operating system to support 5G, Android Q offers app developers tools to build for faster connectivity, enhancing experiences like gaming and augmented reality. Family Link now also has Digitial Well Being integration and Bonus Time. After all, Android is used by dozens of different phonemakers (and hundreds of different phones at this point), whereas Apple maintains a much tighter leash on iOS. Once enabled, it'll mute notifications from whichever apps you find distracting. On the security front, Google claimed to scan over 50 billion apps every day with Google Play Protect. During the session, Google reps pointed out Philo as an early partner that had live demos ready to show at the event.
