Android Q: The best of new features
The latest generation of the Android mobile operating system brings many new features for application developers as well as users. We must not forget about the most important news Dark mode - This feature was one of the most requested.
It is true that Dark Mode can be activated by users of the weekly MIUI version for a long time, but it has been missing in pure Android so far. For smartphones with OLED screens, Dark Mode saves a lot of battery power.
Another important novelty is gesture navigation - Smooth switching between running applications by swiping your finger on the center button. You can see the functionality of this news in the video above.
They are also a new feature proposed actions in alerts. After receiving a message notification, the system will suggest actions that you can take directly in the notification. Alerts also got the chance priority settings.
This allows the user to set whether there will be notifications for the application important or quiet. For important notifications, the phone will ring, vibrate, and display notifications on the lock screen. Silent will not disturb you. Android Q also introduces algorithms that automatically determine whether notifications will be important to you or not.
Android Q in MIUI?
If you ask when we can expect the MIUI extension to Android Q to be updated, you probably won't like the answer. Xiaomi has not yet commented on the arrival of Android Q in MIUI. So we have nothing left but to wait.
In any case, the new version of Android does not mean much to MIUI users, as devices with an older version of Android also receive MIUI features.
