Android Q Beta Released: Here is everything you need to know
Finally, the first public Android Q beta is live now and available for download. So, if you’re operating the Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, Google Pixel 2 XL, Google Pixel 3, or Google Pixel 3 XL (all three Pixel generations are being supported), then you have the opportunity to test the next major Android version.
Moreover, the first beta release is available today while the final release is expected to land in early August. This version comes up with the new feature additions including a system-wide dark mode and a revamp in permission management.
The Android Q comes as the successor to Android P released last year and Android Q Beta 1 brings some of the significant upgrades over Android Pie. While considering new offering is the availability of the precise permissions for giving location access to apps. Google has also added improvements pertaining to foldable phones.
However, the version is live but its first preview is aimed at developers. Google gives developers the chance to test their apps against new Android platform APIs months before the next Android version becomes available for the general public.
Now, we’re waiting for the Google I/O 2019 (starts May 7th), where Google will likely unveil a bunch of new features.
