By default in Android Q Beta 4, users can swipe notifications away in either direction.

If you use live wallpapers on your smartphone, you will now see a small preview box.

  • Google Pay in the power menu

This new addition gives users the ability to quickly see and slide through some of the information they have in Google Pay with just a long-press of the power button.
