Google releases first Android Q beta: Android Q’s Desktop Mode is real

Google releases first Android Q beta

Google releases first Android Q beta: When I first leaked Android Q back in January, there was a feature I really wanted to show, but it was not sad because it was not fully implemented: Experimental Desktop mode. We found a setting in the developer options, which would “bid on experimental desktop mode on the secondary display.” While we can toggle the setting, whatever we tried to do, it will not show “Desktop mode” anywhere. Now that the first Android Q beta is released for Google Pixel Smartphone and Android Studio emulator, it is possible to try it out.

Twitter user @ Shad0wKn1ght93 found that AOSP is a new component in the launcher, which brings a new Android desktop interface when launched. I saw the context of this launcher component in the Q-frame, but the AOSP launcher that was sent with the leaked build was not the component at the time. Now when this happens, it is possible to manually launch the component. If you have an Android studio emulator, you only need to run the ADB command, depending on which Q image you have downloaded.

You can add an app shortcut to the desktop which launches in FreeForm Multi-Windows, a feature that was first launched with the Android 7.0 NNougat. You can also set a wallpaper for the desktop using Custom Mode. The status bar and navigation bar seem to be unchanged, but you still have a lot of room to work on.

It is possible to enable this desktop mode by going to the developer options on Google Pixel, Pixel 2, or Pixel 3, enabling the desktop to run the beta and enabling the “Force desktop mode” developer option, then start the activity in the Pixel launcher using “GMS” do. From top to bottom. However, before placing your phone’s screen in any external display or connecting you need to change your pixel’s DPI.
