Android Q will offer photo apps access to added depth effects

Hence the headline, if you're using an Android One handset like the ones hawked by Nokia, or you're using Google's Pixel handsets, you'll definitely see a benefit. Google warns that the pre-release version of Android Q many contain errors and defects, which can impact the normal functioning of the device. "We're making Dynamic Depth an open format for the ecosystem, and we're working with our device-maker partners to make it available across devices running Android Q and later".

It has been reported that more phones could support the Android Q public beta when it is finally made available. Alphabet's subsidiary is maintaining separate lists of reported app compatibility problems, third-party SDK deficiencies, and general platform issues.

Starting in Android Q, apps can request a Dynamic Depth image which consists of a JPEG, XMP metadata related to depth related elements, and a depth and confidence map embedded in the same file on devices that advertise support.

As The Verge reports, Google today released a preview of the next version of Android. Users and developers testing the Android Q beta will have the option of providing feedback to Google, which will help them fix and identify problems with the OS. You can grab download links for each phone from Google's website. Once done, you will receive the build over-the-air. The company recommends backing up your data before enrolling your device. There are also new restrictions on apps launching background tasks without user knowledge, and restrictions that limit access to location data only while the app is in the foreground.

Beta 1 will deliver a new Sharing Shortcuts feature that will let the user share content with someone in another app.

Developers will be able to show floating settings controls in Android Q as well. Check for Android Q update by going to Settings System Advanced System updates. SlashGear will be there to bring back all the details of the Android Q updates likely to arrive ahead of the OS' full release, which - if previous timelines hold true this year - we're expecting to be released in Q3 2019.
