Facepalm: In a survey of 250 Android so-called antivirus apps, only 80 were found to block more than 30% of malware samples. In a world where most Android smartphones aren't running Android Pie, Google Pixel owners can install the beta of the next Android OS on their devices with a few taps. The report along with the video from the folks at XDA Developers reveal these new gestures that seemed to be more familiar and iPhone-like, and the new animations with these gestures seem to be smooth enough too.

Google is further improving its permissions model with Android Q to make it more privacy-friendly.

New updates on operating systems for mobile phones made an appearance this week, and Android users are abuzz with talks of Google's latest beta programme.

When enabled, the new gestures are pretty identical to what we have seen on the iPhone. We showed you the minor UI tweaks to notifications and settings. On the other hand, if you flashed the Android Q Beta on your smartphone, you would have to download a stable version back again and flash it on your smartphone just like you did before.

Tap/Click on the View your eligible devices button choose your current Google Pixel handset from the list. I don't know why anyone would want this, but it could be that Google is preparing the system to allow other apps to bring back chat bubble experiences?

Swiping up and holding on the pill shows the recent apps overview.

According to the company, while location data can be imperative to giving users recommendations based on where they are, it is also a very sensitive type of personal user information. The new version is yet to get a name beside the Android Q designated tag.

There are three new clock faces all together: text clock, bubble clock, and stretch analog clock. While we do wait with bated breath for this beauty of a smartphone (which will undoubtedly click some remarkable pictures too), let's not forget that Google's Pixel 3 lineup isn't over!

Another feature that users have demanded from Google is that of multiple cameras. The Pixel 4 series isn't expected to be released for another seven months, and we have yet to see any solid rumors about what Google might have in store for Android fans this year.
