Ubuntu – What’s the default Python version in Ubuntu 20.04


What's the default Python 3 version in the new Ubuntu 20.04? Is it still 3.6 or the latest Python 3.8?

I'm developing a Python program that I later want to run on the new Ubuntu 20.04. I'm unsure if I can use the latest Python 3.8 syntax. I don't have Ubuntu 20.04 installed yet to quickly check it, and I couldn't easily find the answer to this question on Google.
