Google did not have time to release Android 9.1, as the Network began to fill the leak about the functionality of Android Q, whose release is scheduled for mid-2019. Judging by the information available to date, the update should be smaller than Android 9 Pie, and focus on improving usability.

Most desirable innovation Q Android is native support for dark themes. 35% of respondents voted for it. According to them, Google should give users the opportunity to decide how they want to see the interface of the operating system. And so, given the benefits that dark theme brings the battery of the smartphone regardless of type of display with which they are equipped, her appearance in the Android Q is strictly required.
Gestures in Android
On the second place on prevalence with a share of votes of 23% there were operating gestures. As noted by the representatives of this category of respondents, the existing system of swipe does not provide proper convenience when interacting with the smartphone interface, and therefore should be revised in the next iteration of the OS.

Android Q Design
The updated design code of the operating system was the third in the list of the most desirable innovations Android Q. 22% of respondents said that the appearance of the platform urgently need to refresh, redrawing it again.

Some of them felt that the developers of the search giant need to make the catalog interface less Intrusive, and some came to the conclusion that he needed a maker in the style of App Store.
