Google released the first beta version of Android Q on Wednesday
Before we move on, we can not recommend installing Android Q on your main phone. There will be mistakes that will break things and almost ruin the battery life. If you do not have an old phone that is compatible with the beta program, you should wait later in the beta cycle before getting in. Even Google warns users during the sign-up process: "Certain features (including core features, such as your ability to make and receive calls) or applications may not work properly."
Beta testing is fun, safe. But if you want your phone to work 1
If you're interested in providing feedback and helping Google detect errors, you should know the following:
Which devices are eligible?
To start only pixel phones are approved by Google. This means the original ($ 280 at Amazon) Pixel 2 ($ 649 on Google Store) Pixel 2 XL Google Store) Pixel 3 ($ 779 at Walmart) and Pixel 3 XL ($ 769 at Amazon Marketplace) .Pixel XL
How do I install it?
There are two options. The easiest way is to visit the beta program website and sign in to the Google account associated with your Pixel phone. Scroll down and search for the appropriate devices. Then click Opt In and accept the terms. After you register your device, you will receive all beta updates for Android Q wirelessly, just as you will now receive software updates. It may take up to 24 hours for your device to receive the update. So give the device some time.
The second method is to flash the system images after downloading from Google. This method requires you to unlock your device's bootloader, reset the device at the factory, and then install the update. Since you flashed the first image, you will not receive future updates wirelessly. You have to update each beta update manually – which is very cumbersome.
Can I leave the beta?
Yes. Regardless of how you installed the beta, you can leave it at any time. For those who signed up through the beta program, you can re-visit the same website and log out. You will receive the latest official build for your device over the air, but the phone will revert to factory settings.
Those who flashed Android Q need to download the latest official build and flash the same tools, and your device will be reset to factory settings.
