Android Q to Warn Users for Running Apps

Keep updating the app is something every developer should follow, as it will help them to run their app on every new Android platform. Also, every Android version comes with new features and APIs that the older version of the Android may not support.

Sometimes, new Android versions also bring along a few restrictions that control how the app will behave. But developers avoid getting to API levels of the newer version to cut down on runtime permissions.

To crackdown on such practices, Google will be adding a new feature in its next Android version, that will warn the user about the app if it is not updated past Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. 

As per a recent report published in the Android Open Source Project, the XDA Developers pointed out that the Android Q is expected to warn the users about all the apps that are running with APIs and features targeting Android 5.1 Lollipop or earlier. There will also a notification for the users that will display a warning message, to which, the user can dismiss or check for an update.

Android Q Warn Users

Developers can update their app to Android P and can save themselves with the new additions to the mobile platform.

Presently, the features that will be the part of the Android P include intuitive navigation, app actions, adaptive battery and brightness, digital wellbeing, refined Dashboard, app timers and much more. So, upgrading the apps to the Android P APIs and features will only benefit the developers.

If the app has not been updated since the release of Android Lollipop, you will be getting a lot of additional Android features with the latest update. Some of the add-ons will include notification channels/dots, granular permissions, and voice interactions.

The XDA forum has cleared the fact that Google won’t hinder the users from using the older apps and it will benefit such apps that are not updated for ages, but still, are being used by many users. For them, a warning message for such apps will not be of greater significance. 

As of now, all eyes are focused upon the launch of Android P, which is just around the corners, whereas, Android Q is scheduled for next year. Therefore, developers have still ample time to update their apps in accordance with the latest versions.
