The chapter on scoped storage was overhauled again, owing to the substantial changes that showed up in Q Beta 4.

Two short new chapters were added on dark mode and gesture navigation, replacing previous sections in the “Other Changes” chapter.

That “Other Changes” chapter, and bits of other chapters, were updated for Q Beta 4. Material was added on the audio capture APIs as well.

At this point, I am expecting two more updates to this book:

  • One when Android Q ships as Android 10, to make any tweaks based on the final shipping versions plus perhaps add a bit more of new material

  • One when the next generation of Pixel devices ships, to cover any Android Q things that are at least initially unique to those devices

It is possible that there will be another update sooner than those, if, say, Q Beta 5 makes unexpected changes to Android Q. That is unlikely.
