One of the main highlights of Android 10 is the presence of the so-called dark mode. In practice, the feature allows changing the base of the system’s colors to black and dark gray, leaving the screen less luminous and saving the user’s vision. On devices with display OLED, whose technology produces even less light in dark areas, the nighttime theme should still save energy. THE «dark mode«has been announced by several applications, is already confirmed on iOS 13, the iPhone system, and should also arrive soon on WhatsApp.

Google has placed privacy as a major focus on Android 10. In the new system, it is possible to block applications from accessing the device’s location while they are in the background. With this, the user will be able to choose which apps will be able to view the GPS information when they are not running. The topic was also Apple’s priority for the new version of its software, at a time when major technology companies are under pressure to adopt measures that increase the privacy of their consumers.

Among the other features present in Android 10, there is also a multitasking function called Bubbles, which allows the use of two applications simultaneously.
