The chapter on scoped storage was completely overhauled, owing to the substantial changes that showed up in Q Beta 3. Also, the material on MediaStore was pulled out into its own chapter.

A new chapter was added on new limits on getting location data.

The chapter on RoleManager was downgraded to a section in the “Other Changes of Note” chapter, given that it is unclear if it will have any, er, role in Android Q.

Similarly, the chapter on bubbles was downgraded to a section in the “Other Changes of Note” chapter, since it will not be accessible to ordinary users in Android Q.

A few other sections were added in the “Other Changes of Note” chapter, mostly as placeholders for future chapters on dark mode, gesture navigation, and audio capture.

And everything was brought up to date for Q Beta 3.

The next update will be after the release of Q Beta 4. So far, Google has stuck to their timeline, and Q Beta 4 is slated for early June.
