User privacy has been announced as Google's top priority in the development of Android 10 (Q). The update will allow the user to limit applications access to their location. This will allow apps to be set to have GPS access only during use, automatically disabling the function when in the background.

Some examples are the ease of accessing favorite places and an integrated travel planner. Features such as path sharing with contacts and 3D map views are also expected in this new version of the program. However, many functions should only come to US users.
In this regard, Android 10 (Q) has Google Maps, which already has most of the functions announced by the competitor. The latest service announcements are in front of Apple Maps, and feature such features as augmented reality and crash, radar or slow alerts. In the month of June, Brazilian users were given a function that says whether buses, subways and trains are full.

Another feature that has been around for years in Android is that integrating iOS 13 is "floating" typing with the named feature of QuickPath. It will allow the user to type quickly and with one hand by connecting each letter of the typed word with a simple swipe. In the past, this function was only offered on alternative iPhone keyboards, such as the extinct Swype or Google's own Gboard. The iOS 13 keyboard has also enhanced text editing elements such as document scrolling, cursor movement and word selection.
IOS 13 Messaging app updates include automatic viewing of a contact's photo and name, similar to what happens in apps like WhatsApp and Telegram. It will also be possible to display Memoji, Apple's 3D avatar, which gains more customization options and the ability to transform into stickers through Memoji Sticker for use in other messaging applications.
The new Android relies on the so-called Smart Answer Function, which should help the user perform multiple tasks at the same time and be present in Android 10 (Q) messaging apps like Hangouts. The feature not only allows messages to be answered instantly, but also gives you suggestions for actions for the user, such as querying directly on Google Maps for a property quoted in a conversation.
