Android 10: New Gesture Navigation and Dark Mode

Android 10 is finally out and we justgot it pushed to our Google pixel 3a which Google kindly gave us a few monthsago we've been testing out the 3a four a six months later review but Ithought it'd be useful to go over one how to get the latest version

of Androidon your Android device especially right now if it's a pixel and then second Iwant to go over the top two features of Android 10 which in my book are thegesture navigation as well as dark theme so let's dive in alright first how doyou get the latest version

of Android on your Android devicenow when Google releases the latest version of Android they always go to thepixel phones first because Google makes pixel phones so it's very easy forGoogle to roll them out to those phones now if you have an Android device fromother devices like Huawei Samsung

Nokia etc what happens is Google releasesAndroid 10 then it's up to your device manufacturer as well as sometimes yourcell carrier to give their stamp of approval and they'll do add-ons andcustomize it and add crap onto it and then it's released to you if you wantthe purest version of

Android how Google intended it to be used that's reallywhat the pixel phone is all about ok so enough about selling you on pixel phoneswhat you want to do is you want to go to settings scroll down to UC system then clickadvanced and then click system update now if

youdon't see a system update don't panic make sure you click that button in thebottom right hand corner that says check for update now if it checks for anupdate and no update is available hang tightAndroid 10 was actually launched yesterday but we didn't get an updatepush to our Google

pixel 3 a until about 7 o'clock the day after so once theupdate is available I have to do is click to install go through the menusand things that will pop up for us it took about 5 to 10 minutes to actuallyinstall Android 10 again it's got to actually

download the update install iton the phone and then restart the phone now when the phone actually restartedyou can tell right away that you are getting a new version of AndroidGoogle's logo for Android actually is slightly tweaked on the loading screenfor Android 10 if you're interested more about that

Google actually did a blogpost about it they've like tweaked the color for the Android mascot and the waythe mascot is incorporated into the Android logo and a couple other thingsanyways it's you're interested about that I'll link that blog post thatGoogle put out in the video description below now

when we actually started upour Google pixel 3 a one of the most shocking things with Android 10 rightoff the bat for me was it looked exactly like Android 9 like maybe the fontlooked slightly different there wasn't any pop-up or anything that said heywelcome to Android 10 here the

top five things that you should check out thatyou can now do like nothing and gesture navigation and dark mode weren't eventhings that were turned on by default there there was nothing pointing you towhere they are so that was something that I definitely thought is lackingoverall in the Android

experience is being able to guide users at least onthe version that Google puts on the pixel phones is making it easy to guideusers through new features of the phone to go ahead and switch to gesturenavigation on Android 10 you have to go into your settings so let's go

ahead andgo to settings we're going to go again to system andthen gestures and then click system navigationthis will bring you to a page that shows you you now have three options you havethe three button navigation that's the good old-fashioned Android way tonavigate around a phone you have to

button navigation this is what waspreviously on Android nine and then you have the new gesture navigation nowgesture navigation basically brings Android a little bit more up to par withsome of the gestures that are currently on iOS so the biggest one for me atleast so let's say we're just

on a screen here is the back swipe noticethere's no more back button the only thing I wish they had that I feel likeyou have on iOS for certain things is like say I went back here but I'm likeoh I didn't mean to do that I can't like I

can't swipe it forward it's Androidisn't set up the way iOS is where it's like a series of cards that are likestacked on each other so if you swipe one this way you can swipe it back likeon webpages yeah you can't really do that here so how do you

go home now howdo you go to the home screen well it's actually a little bit simpler than itwas before you just swipe up now a couple other things one thing I reallyliked about Android 9 was the favorites app dock and the way you get to that isactually very

similar you just swipe up hold about a third of the screen you geta little vibrate click from your phone and there you go how do you get to theapp drawer well it's the exact same way as you would before also notice howsnappy game to the app tour is

I mean that's I can't tell if they've done anyperformance improvements on the back end of the OS here but even on the pixel 3alike the phone feels snappier going from Android 9 to Android 10 it's not a hugeimprovement but it's nice to say the phone was slow to

begin with I'm justsaying it if you'll snap you're after upgrade all right now last thing let'stalk about the Google assistant right in to button navigation you have thatcenter button you click it and that would trigger the Google assistant wellin gesture navigation there is no more center button right

it's just screen andthen it goes to bezel basically what they've implemented is something akin tothe hot corners right you just swipe diagonally from the corner of the screenand that will trigger the Google assistant all right let's talk about oursecond feature with Android 10 and that is dark-themed how

do you getdark-themed enabled well we're gonna need to go to settings again this timewe're gonna go to display and then you'll see that dark theme should beright underneath wallpaper or right around it go ahead and check dark themeand that will enable dark theme for your phone you may

get a pop-up that says heydark themes available for like these apps but some apps don't support it yetcurrently I think Chrome and Gmail and maybe there's like one other actualGoogle app still doesn't support dark theme yet that support is coming andthose apps are supposed to launch with dark

theme later on in September but fornow apps like Google Calendar those types of apps they work with dark themenow let's say though that you want a toggle dark theme on and off but youdon't want to have to go into settings every time to do it well luckily for

youthere's actually a dark theme quick control so you just swipe down from thetop like you normally do go to your quick settings here scroll down you'llsee that you have additional things that you could drag in tap and hold and thendrag dark theme in place it where you want

it and then either swipe back orhit that back arrow at the top of edit and now dark theme is in your quicksetting controls you can easily tap oh no more dark theme oh but I want darktheme back tap it again now you have dark theme alright sothat's just

a quick rundown of how to get Android 10 on your Android deviceespecially if you have a pixel phone as well as my take on the top two featuresof Android 10 again I really like gestures dark themes cool I'll be evencooler when more apps support it natively but if
