Android Q

At Google I/O, the event dedicated to developers took place last week where the third Developer Preview of Android Q was presented. Not all news, however, was announced during the inaugural keynote and some of them went into the second floor, despite being particularly important.

During “Fast pair for Bluetooth Devices“, one of the many talks that took place over the three days that were not streamed. Google talked about Fast Pair and a refresh of the Bluetooth settings interface.

In addition to announcing that the Fast Pair feature will soon arrive on third-party smartphones and accessories, Google has announced a new feature that will make it easier to find lost accessories.

It’s called ” Find My Accessories” and will be a function dedicated to accessories compatible with Fast Pair. Entering the “Find my device” screen, it will be possible to find headphones or other Bluetooth devices, thanks to the map that will show the position where the last disconnection was made.

The indicative position will be indicated by checking the connection quality and the time of the last use, with the possibility to disconnect the device or play a sound, useful in the case of a Bluetooth speaker.

The second feature concerns the new aspect of the Bluetooth connection management card, which among other things will be able to show the remaining charge of the single true wireless headphones in addition to that of the relative charging case.

The new screen will show more detailed information on the battery, manage the settings for notifications and the voice assistant, set up any touch controls and enable other functions.

The new screen is not present in Android Q Beta 3 but should be released in a future release.
