Android Q is expected to feature a new process to give apps and games access/permission to access certain features, increasing the privacy of the user. In Android Q users will be able to control features like access to camera and microphone.
Android Q is expected to support native desktop mode, similar to the Samsung DEX, where a user can connect an Android smartphone to a television using a thunderbolt or display port using the USB type C port. With this feature, users can use their smartphones as computers by connecting it to an external monitor or display.
New fonts and icons
Android Q is expected to offer better customization features compared to Android 9 Pie. In Android Q, users will be able to change fonts and icon packs without installing third party apps or rooting the smartphone.
Background clipboard access
Android Q is expected to offer control over apps which can access clipboard content. As in Android 9 Pie, most of the apps can access and read clipboard. This will further enhance user privacy.
