This essentially means apps which previously weren’t focused on Android 10 will now be pushed towards taking advantages of the OS’s software and security improvements.
In a post, online Google said: “Every new Android version launches tweaks that bring significant security and working quality improvements as well as enhance the user experience of Android overall.
