As first noticed by XDADevelopers, the latest Android Q build has arrived on the Googe Pixel 3 and while there is a lot of work to be done so as to make it ready for the public, it gives us a glimpse of what the future holds for Dark Theme on Android.
The build date of the ROM was just last week along with February 2019's security patch and it's up-to-date with Google's AOSP internal master. But we won't see any Pixel-specific software customizations or Google Play apps, sadly. But let's dive into what we do know. Hence, this new dark mode feature will undoubtedly be something that everyone will want to use. Another similarity with some of Google's other apps is that you can set it to enable when it gets dark outside. In this mode, the Volume panel, Quick Settings and notifications are all black.
Even better, XDA dug up a Developer option that forces apps that don't have a built-in dark mode to revert to one anyway. From the Settings app, users can now look at each app's permissions individually. The information about which app is now accessing your location can be found in the notification tray and tapping on the icon will take you to the permissions menu.
There are apparently a slew of new developer options. Nestled under "Developer Options", it features a description that reads - "force experimental desktop on secondary displays". But some have a clearer goal: enabling freeform windows has returned, and once switched on, you can pop open freeform multi-windows by pressing and holding an app icon in the recent apps overview, according to XDA. The former allows users to configure "how long to show messages that ask you to take action, but are only visible temporarily". It's not totally clear what these are specifically referring to as the UI likely hasn't been finalized.

It would seem the system-wide dark mode works exactly as one might expect with the user able to toggle on the mode at any point and have it largely apply equally across the user experience.
Other findings include an off switch for all sensors, additional screen lock options when a trusted device is near, added or removed, improved built-in files app and new behavior of the pop-up notifications. The easiest comparison to make would be the system present on Samsung devices like DeX for the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 or the Galaxy Tab S4, which lets users hook up their phones or tablets to monitors and keyboards for a more desktop-friendly layout, complete with a taskbar and greater control over the size and position of app windows.
Alongside these visual changes, Android Q will also focus heavily on privacy.
