Besides, digital well being is also getting upgrading with the enticing parental control app, namely Family links.

Apple has always bashed Google because of the level of privacy and security it offers. The android operating system is often considered as an unsecured platform.
And with the statement of Sundar Pichai (CEO of Google),
“privacy cannot be a luxury good.”
It seems that Google will be focusing more privacy measures in the all-new Android 10.
Android 10 will be enabling users to access single files rather than accessing all the data with the help of Scope storage. To put across, now you music player library will request for permission concerning the music and video libraries rather than accessing every library.

Earlier, it was a few smartphones that offered multitasking feature, but now in Android 10, it has become mandatory. You might have encountered the Facebook messenger bubbles while you’re chatting and using other apps.
Similarly, Android 10 will keep the bubble as an app you were using recently along with the ability to use some separate app at the same. These floating alerts will keep you connected with every app and accomplish your activity.
7. Unique way to update your device:
Android 10 is introducing Project Mainline that will allow Google to patch specific core system workings with an OTA update. This will enable you to update your device or apps without restarting it because many of us avoid updating the device due to restart factor.

This will work in real-time as well as only locally on-device, which means it doesn’t require internet connection.
