As the tenth version of Android, the name change of Android 10 and the design change of Android logo do not seem that simple. On the one hand, the new naming method is inclusive and easy for more people to accept. On the other hand, Android 10 itself is a major upgrade.What else should Android 10 pay attention to behind the big change in appearance?
Dessert is out. The new system is called Android 10.
Starting with Android 1.6 version of Cupcake (cupcake), Android names, Android Lollipop (lollipop), Android Marshmallow (marshmallow), Android Nougat (mollollipop). Google after a dessert every time a major version is upgraded: because Android devices make life sweet, we name each version of Android after desserts.
Every time before the new code is released, netizens are also keen to guess which kind of dessert Google will use as the code for the new system. It's embarrassing that there are too few desserts starting with Q. Foreign netizens chose Qurabiya (almond muffin), Quindim (Brazilian coconut cake), Qottab (Iranian traditional cake). Chinese netizens said that they were better than QQ sugar... But they are not the usual desserts, and it is difficult for everyone to accept them.
That's why Google named the new system Android 10. Google said in its official blog that although naming desserts is interesting, not everyone understands it. In the pronunciation of some languages, L and R are indistinguishable. If you are not familiar with Android naming rules, it is difficult to distinguish between versions. Some desserts are not popular everywhere.
Given that Google is embracing the dream of the next billion users, such a change is also a matter of course. Although digital naming is boring, it embodies Android's open spirit and can be accepted by more people.
Android robots became dark green and part of the logo
Another change is the redesign of Android logo. The original logo is the green Android text. The new logo turns the text into black and adds Android robots into a part of the logo. Such changes are also aimed at "all people", and for some visually impaired people, green is not easy to identify. The new Android logo uses black text, and Android robots have become darker green.
What are the important new features of Android 10?
The change in Android 10 is not only a name change, but also a major upgrade of the system itself. Android 10 changed the default navigation mode to "gesture navigation" and the experience was similar to iOS. Slide back to the desktop, hover up into the application background, slide back to the left and right edges, and slide the navigation bar to switch the background application.
Android 10 finally supports global dark mode (dark theme background). The adaptation of the system and its own applications is relatively perfect, and the adaptation of third-party applications may not keep up until the official version is released.
Notification management is optimized in Android 10. Set permissions to "priority" and the notification will issue a prompt sound, which will be displayed in the drop-down notification bar, the status bar and the lock screen. Set it as "silent" and the notification will be silent and displayed in the drop-down notification bar and status. Android 10 also adds the "adaptive notification" function, which automatically sets low priority notifications as silent notifications and provides jump suggestions in notifications.
In fact, before Android 10, the name of Android was synchronized with numbers and letters. The renaming does not affect the use of letters as codes within Google, but we can no longer know what kind of dessert it recites.
At present, Android 10 has launched Beta 6, which is the last test version. It is expected that we will be able to meet with the official Android 10 in the near future.
