Android Q is the latest version of Android. The first iteration of the software arrived for 13 different OEMs. As of now, the software is currently in its fourth beta version. It’s true that Android Q is going to offer a plethora of wonderful features including the ability to control Wi-Fi scanning as well as the ease of sharing Wi-Fi passwords. The good news keeps pouring in as Android Q won’t automatically connect to manually disconnected Wi-Fi networks.
This news comes courtesy of the Android Developer Page. The page confirms the above-mentioned feature regarding Wi-Fi-, mentioning that:
If the user uses the Wi-Fi picker to explicitly disconnect from one of the network suggestions when connected to it, then that network is blacklisted for 24 hours. During the blacklist period, that network will not be considered for auto-connection, even if the app removes and re-adds the network suggestion corresponding to the network.
This is certainly a good thing as the device will no longer try to automatically connect to a Wi-Fi signal which a user has manually disconnected from. This feature will certainly help users accidentally use up data which wasn’t meant to be exhausted. It seems like Android Q is adding a number of refinements to the Android operating system.
