Android Q Early Build: System-wide Dark Theme, Permissions Revamp, Desktop Mode, And More

Thanks to the guys from XDA-Developers, who had the chance to test an Android Q early build, the upcoming Android OS version would come with a system-wide dark theme, permissions revamp, desktop mode, more developer options, enhanced accessibility features, and more. However, as XDA-Developers stated, the Android Q early build they’ve tested is not the Developer Preview that Google would roll out later this year for the devs and which would be closer to the final version.

System-wide Dark Mode to Come to Android Q

Earlier this month, we’ve already talked about the main change Android Q would feature – a system-wide Dark Mode. The XDA-Developers confirmed the rumors, as the Android Q early build they’ve tested comes with a fully operational Dark Mode.

Android Q to Boast Revamped Permissions

It looks like Google thought to enhance the privacy security options in Android P since Android Q, even though is in its early build phase, boasts huge permissions revamp in the Settings, permitting users to overview and change permissions as the apps run.

Developer Options to Come With Additional Tweaks

Android Q is going to come out with many additional Developer Options tweaks and functions, such as the new “Game Update Package Preferences,” built-in screen recorder, a wallpaper feature for the “Always On Display” tweak, and many more.

Android Q Might Come With A ‘Desktop Mode’

Also under the Developer Options, there is a ‘Desktop Mode’ switch, called ‘force desktop mode.’ “his sounds to me like it’s going to be a Samsung DeX or EMUI Easy Projection-type feature, but I wasn’t able to actually test it since nothing happened when I plugged in my USB Type-C to HDMI adapter,” reported Mishaal Rahman from XDA-Developers.

New Accessibility Features in Android Q

Android Q would also add two new Accessibility feature, namely, ‘Time to Take Action’ and ‘Time to Read.’ The first one would allow users to “choose how long to show messages that ask you to take action, but are only visible temporarily,” while the second option would permit users to opt for “how much time you want to read and take action on messages that automatically go away.”
