For a while now, there have been several reports speculating some features of Android Q, but unfortunately, there was no mention of when the official developer preview would be launched. In fact, there was recently a new report that claimed the preview could be released soon, but from new reports making the rounds, it seems like the time has come.
Google has officially announced the launch of the beta for Android Q. The beta will be initially available to Pixel devices which means that non-Pixel users will have to wait for their turn. It is worthy to note that this is only the beta, which means that certain features might not work, or certain features could actually end up getting removed ahead of the final release.
As such it’s not recommended that users use the Android Q beta as their daily driver, but if you are interested in checking it out, more details about the beta can be found on Google’s website. There is no word on when the final update will be released, but given Google’s past releases, there is a good chance that this will probably take place in the later part of the year alongside the 2019 Pixel smartphones.
In the meantime, we expect that developers will continue to uncover features that are part of Android Q, so do check back with us at a later date for more updates.
