Google has officially rolled out the Android 10 update for all Pixel phones after teasing about it back in May at the annual developer conference Google I/O. This latest version of Android operating system comes with the much anticipated system wide dark mode along with other useful features.
With Android 10, Pixel users will also have the ability to use gesture navigation. This is basically a swipe feature where you can seamlessly switch between Apps and the home screen by swiping on the screen. This is very similar to what you have on iPhone X where you have such type of swipe gesture to navigate between Apps.
Before the update, Pixel users had to press the Back button to get to the previous screen. Thus, the release of Android 10 will see the end of the Back button once it releases for majority of Android smartphones apart from Pixel models.
The dark mode is yet another terrific addition by Google that will feature on Android 10. It sticks to the ‘true black’ theme design and turns the Pixel phone into a very eye-soothing experience. Google claims that the dark mode will also help users save and improve the overall battery life with prolonged usage.
Some of the other features include the Focus Mode for shutting down Apps which keep sending notifications and Live Caption for automatically adding captions on podcasts and videos.
Android 10 will also feature new emojis with more focus on gender-ambigious design. Apart from this, the security fixes and system updates will be sent directly to the users via Google Play Store similar to App updates.
