Even if your phone has not yet been updated to Android 9.0 Pie, some lucky souls will soon enjoy the next big thing: Android 10 Q. The Beta for Android Q has it announced, and a few happy souls will soon be testing the next major mobile operating system. While Google still has the question of what sweetness Android Q will give its name, here's how you can get an idea of the Beta of Android Q.
Note: Downloading the Android Q-Beta should be easy for average users. Remember, though, that it's a beta version and you're likely to encounter bugs and other issues. If you decide that this is too much or just does not like it, going back to an earlier version is expensive. You need to update your device to Android 9.0 Pie, which means that all phone data that has not been backed up will be lost. Please bear this in mind before starting the process.
Make sure you have the right phone for the job
The Android Q beta version will initially be available only to people with Pixel phones ̵
Here is the list of currently confirmed phones to support the beta version of Android Q:
- Google Pixel
- Google Pixel XL
- Google Pixel 2
- Google Pixel 2 Xl
- Google Pixel 3
- Google Pixel 3 XL
Not in the list? Then we are afraid that you will be lucky and you will probably have to wait for your manufacturer to update your phone when the final release of Android Q is released.
Back up your data
Betas are limited and, for a reason, voluntary – they are work in progress and they are usually flawed. Therefore, it is best not to lose with something to lose. Make sure you've backed up all your data – including photos, videos, contacts, and more – before downloading and installing the beta. Betas can go wrong, and it's worth making sure everything is fully secured in value.
Installing the Android Q-Beta
Thankfully, downloading and installing the Android Q-Beta is pretty straightforward , So go ahead.
