Connecting to smart home and IoT devices on Android Q will be less of a hassle
One of the banes of my geeky existence is setting up and using smart home and IoT devices. Every manufacturer figures out one way to let you connect to their product and you have to follow their step-by-step guide to the letter, and even then, it's better to be prepared for frustration and a few retries. That's especially true for WiFi devices, but Android Q is ready to make things easier. In the Q announcement post, a small section outlines "Improved peer-to-peer and internet connectivity," explaining that apps will be able to have a list of preferred SSIDs and there will be a new Wi-Fi picker that surfaces asking you if you want to connect to any of those.
