The upcoming major Android release, Android Q might go through a UI refreshment and that includes new Font, Icon shape and accent color. Google might also as spotted by XDA Developers, introduce privacy focussed features.
The search giant might allow users to change the Font, Icon shape, and Accent color throughout the UI. This however is might not sound anything new if you own devices like OnePlus, Huawei, Xiaomi, to name a few. But for the rest of the people who are running stock Android like the one that you find on your Nokia devices, it is something to get excited about if you love customization. At the time of authoring this article, we could only see four icons, two fonts, and three accent colors.
There are also evidences found pointing to the arrival of features that will limit what apps can read the clipboard in the background. Although, the apps that are signed by the OEM will be able to reach out to the clipboard if it wants to.
Another important feature that might get into the production build is currently in development and will allow apps to have background access to the location of the device even when you are not using it. On opening such apps, a warning displaying “app will always have access to the location, even when you’re not using the app” will appear on the screen and the app will need your permission on that to proceed further.
All these exciting new features are to be taken with a grain of salt as they have a fair amount of chance to get killed before coming to the final build. We expect Google to connect the dots at Google I/O which will kick off on May 7.
