Android Q includes a new internal architecture called Project Mainline that splits off certain OS functions into app-like modules that can be updated quickly and easily, without updating the whole OS. This will allow many security and privacy updates to be delivered quickly via Google Play, instead of requiring time-consuming updates of the whole OS created by manufacturers and carriers. The new modules include several that are critical for security and/or have required the most updates in the past. These include module for handling media (photos, videos, and audio), resolving internet domain names, managing app permissions, and cryptography.
