Hi Mi fans,
Google just launched the brand new Android Q system. It is the next version of Google’s mobile operating system, following Android Pie(Android 9).
Mi 9 and Mi MIX 3 5G are the first Xiaomi phones to participate in Google's Android Q Beta program. Mi MIX 3 5G is also the world's first 5G phone to support Android Q Beta! Now, we have updated Mi MIX3 5G to Android Q Beta system, so let’s run through some of the significant changes and features in this update.
As we know, on OLED display, dark modes can help you save more battery life and will be more pleasant to watch your screen at night. So it has finally arrived.
Activating Android Q’s Dark Theme is very simple. Turn into display settings, select theme option,then choose dark. Or you can enable and disable it by Quick Settings tile.
When enabled, quick settings, settings menu, home screen folders, the app drawer, and some system apps like Google Calendar and Photos will have a black background.
New navigation controls are the first change you’ll notice.
You can enable the new system navigation in Settings. There are three kind of navigation to choose. You can choose between the new “fully gestural navigation” system, Android Pie’s two-button navigation, and the three-button navigation. Let's focus on the fully gestural navigation now.
After enabling the fully gestural navigation, you’ll see a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. You can swipe up from the bottom of the screen to go home. Swipe from either the left or right edge of the screen to go back. You can also swipe left or right on navigation bar to switch apps. If you want to launch the app switcher, just swipe up and pause.
Location and Privacy settings
The new Privacy settiings makes it easier to see what services are being accessed. In Permission manager, You can control the privacy of each app.
Furthermore, Android Q offers new actions in notifications, new ways to engage users, Vulkan extensions, and more!
