What is new in Android Q Beta 6?
When it comes to addressing all the Android Q features, the list is a long one. However, we can have a glimpse of a few features that were updated and fixed for the final version.
The APIs for developers were finalized in Beta 4, meaning Beta 5 and now Beta 6 is mainly about eliminating bugs and giving the final touches to the Android Q masterpiece. The update includes the latest Android Q system images for Pixel and Android Emulator. Build tools have also been updated for the Android Studio in Beta 6. Moreover, API 29 SDK has been finalized in this latest update.
An engineer in the Google Android Developer Relations Team, Chris Banes said “The behavior of the exclusion APIs are changing. You can request what you like, but the system will now only honour X amount from the bottom (currently 200dp)”.
Let’s now look into the most-awaited and interesting feature update of Android Q Beta 6: Navigations Gesture.
Navigations Gesture is one incredible feature that is keeping the users and developers on their toes. There is a 200dp vertical app exclusion limit for the Back gesture. With that, the sensitivity preference setting for the Back gesture has also been added to render a smooth functioning. Google claimed that these changes are “based on user feedback”.
Chris also tweeted addressing navigation drawers “The drawer behavior is changing. Users will be able to open the drawer by peeking the drawer, and then swiping. The big benefit is that this works with existing apps with “old” DrawerLayout versions.”
