The key note is usually followed by announcements involving various products and services provided by Google. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are topics that are expected to be announced. The predictions are that the Google Assistant, Google Lens and other major Google products might be all set with new and better features.

But what really has the fans in frenzy is the fact that Android is expected to reveal more about its latest version, Android Q. While we already saw glimpses of certain new features in a video that went viral on the Internet, we will be able to understand and analyze the features that are going to be introduced in a better way.

Some of the features that were noted after the video was that the icons on the always-on display are moved and notification can only be cleared with a right swipe. In addition to this, the settings icons have also been slightly changed. The permission settings have been revamped as well. A notable characteristic of this feature is that it has the ability to limit an app’s access to a specific setting while the app is still in use. We also saw an updated dark mode. There is talk that Google will bring system-wide dark mode for Android.
