10 New Features from Android 10 [Video]
Android 10 was officially released yesterday and we’ve been busy digging through all the new features. You can currently get the update on all Pixel devices and the Essential Phone, but it’s also available in beta for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro and “stable” beta for the Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro. There are a good number of important new features in this release, and XDA TV’s Max Weinbach goes over all of them in a new video.
Google highlighted 10 new features of Android 10 on the official website: Live Caption, Smart Reply, Sound Amplifier, Gesture Navigation, Dark Theme, Privacy Controls, Location Controls, Security Updates, Focus Mode, and Family Link. Max goes through these features and shows off how they work. Live Caption isn’t yet available, but the rest of the features are accessible. Sound Amplifier can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, while Focus Mode and Family Link require the latest Digital Wellbeing betas. The Gesture Navigation and Dark Theme have been around since the early Android Q betas, so we’re all pretty familiar with them by now.
There are more features in this release, of course, but these are the top highlights that Google wants you to know about. We should see even more about Android 10 when the Pixel 4 is announced soon. Are you running Android 10 yet? Are you giving the new gestures a chance? What do you think of this release?
