The announcements that you need to know from the Google I/O 2019 keynote

Android Q now supports foldable devices and becomes the first operating system to support native 5G. Google also provides developers with tools for faster connectivity, enhance gaming, and AR experience on Android Q.

Google introduces 'Live caption' to help hearing impaired people. With just a single tap, it will automatically caption media that’s playing audio on the user’s phone. The captions will start showing up as soon as the speech is detected and this works without the need of Wi-Fi or mobile data connection.

The American company also launched the 'Smart Reply' feature which is now built into the notification system in Android. It allows any messaging app to suggest replies in notifications and also predicts the user’s next action.

There is now also a dedicated 'Privacy section' under settings where users can find important controls in a single place. There is also a new location section where users will get more control over the Location data that they share with apps. They can choose to share location data with apps only while they’re in use and additionally, users will receive reminders when an app has their location in the background so that they can decide if they will continue sharing.

Google also introduces the 'Focus mode' that will help users get focused without distraction. With this feature, users will be able to select the apps that they find distracting and choose to silence them until they come out of Focus mode.

Android Q will also let users do security updates without rebooting the phone.


All these features will be rolling out in Android Q Beta starting today and the Beta version is available for 21 devices from 13 brands, including all Pixel phones.
