    Android Q will continue to limit the scanning of WiFi networks in third-party applications

    One of the innovations introduced Android 9 Foot, and that has not liked by many developers, is the limitation of the scanning of WiFi networks. The developers have limited the number of times that an application can scan for available networks, and now we know that it will continue to also in Android Q.

    This limitation prevents some applications that need to be all the while scanning the WiFi connections nearby to work correctly from Android Foot. There are applications that are exploring WiFi networks at all times for navigation in indoors, the signal intensity measurements, or to find a free access point, for example.

    Everything will remain the same in Android Q

    Google limited the scanning of WiFi networks to improve the network performance and the battery life on Android P, and now Google has confirmed that this behavior will continue in Android Q.

    Now on Android, only the system applications can be all the time looking for WiFi networks. Third-party applications are limited. If you are in the first plane have a limit of four scans every 2 minutes, while if they are running in the background can only do a single scan every half hour.

    Due to the complaints of developers, Google promises to add in Android Q a switch in the developer options that allows the user to disable the limitation of the scans WiFi, but it seems that only if you have the device rooteados, with only a small number of users will benefit from that novelty.
