One of the important innovations of Android Q should be a long-awaited desktop mode. In the current beta versions, this function is hidden in the settings and, when activated, looks frankly crude. Therefore, the developer Daniel Bandford has created his own launcher for more comfortable work with Android on the big screen.
Daniel Blandford uses the Essential Phone with the latest beta version of Android Q, which is connected to an external monitor and a wireless keyboard. Since Google has not yet finalized the desktop mode, the enthusiast has created his own user interface, which is activated when the smartphone is connected to the monitor.
The custom launcher looks much better than stock from Google and in many ways resembles the classic operating systems for personal computers like Windows, Chrome OS and others. In the lower left corner are selected applications and installed program menus. The latter is implemented by analogy with the "Start" menu in Windows 10. In the right corner is the time and quick settings.
It is possible that by the release of the final version of Android 10, Google employees will finalize the desktop mode and user interface for it.
