Also the Play Store is always looking for updates, so to the minimum that it can update again and reinstall the latest version. Now we can have the old version without problems. With Android Q we can do it with any (or almost any) app from the Play Store. As always these leaks come to us direct from XDA Developers, two new packages have been discovered in the code to do downgrade (downgrade the app) and revert to the old version (known as rollback). These packages are user permissions to allow reverting to previous versions of applications.
Rollback, we can uninstall application updates easily and simply
From what you see the rollback can be done directly from the Play Store without much complication, although it is not known for sure. But it would be a very good option to be able to go back to the old update in case there are errors in the new one. Yes, it is not known if it will be for all applications, for some in particular, depending on the developer, etc. We don’t know yet how it will work.
It would be interesting that just as you have the option to update the app, you had the rollback option, although it is not exactly in the updates section. We will see how the implementation will be.
Other new features of Android Q: Localization of third-party apps
Other new features in Android Q. In recent years Google changed the functionality of the location in third-party apps (that is, they are not from Google). And as soon as the application closed, live location information was closed or minimized on impact. This made you have to have the app in the foreground all the time if you wanted to make sure to use that map client you like or the location for any other app that might need it.
At first it could servir to save battery, or ensure more privacy (since they are not all the time watching where you are). In fact, they are advantages of this feature, but many apps such as maps, hiking route apps, running, etc., drastically reduced its functionality. Now with Android Q things change, the location returns in the background for third-party apps.
This has been filtered in the same way as above, XDA Developers has found some location permissions in the background for Android Q, which could indicate what we are discussing. The app would always have access to the location in real time.
With the increase in battery life and performance of mobile phones in recent years, we should not have problems, and this would bring us more advantages than disadvantages.
