How To Download/Install Android 10 Q Beta Right Now?

Google Releases Android Q Beta for Developers, Early Adopters

To get your hands on it, simply head on over to Google's Android Beta Program page and enroll your Pixel Device to receive an over-the-air update - even the original Pixel and Pixel XL are still supported.

As The Verge reports, Google today released a preview of the next version of Android.

The third option is to set up an Android Emulator to run the beta. Here's the site where you can download them. Google tends to add major UI changes and headlining features later in the testing process. Just as Android 9 Pie came with different kinds of display notch designs, the Android Q has been created to better manage the contents on devices with foldable screens. In the past, you could either grant or deny location access for an app, but there was no in between.

Numerous previously announced features for foldable phones like the Galaxy Fold are also built into Android Q. For developers, that means supporting new paused and resumed states that allow multiple apps to work on a larger display. Under the Wi-Fi section, you can share the password in the form of a QR code, or read one such QR code to connect to Wi-Fi.

Apart from the above, Android Q also introduces support for a new of new technologies. So for example, you can only add app shortcuts to the desktop and nothing else. Rejoice Android aficionados! (that own a Pixel phone, of course). So, you could get better portrait mode snaps. There are also expanded privacy-related permission pop-ups for new or newly-started apps. Apps can no longer leap into the foreground while you're using another app; the most an app can now do is give a notification that it wants to do something.

In Android Q, the permissions have expanded. Android Q allows you to fine-tune control over location sharing; when an app asks for your location data, you can select "allow only while the app is in use" or "allow all the time". Things had changed with Android Pie (P, at the time) because new devices can access it (Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, OnePlus 6, and Essential PH-1). While we continue to dig around and find new, hidden and unannounced goodies, below are five features coming to Android Q worth getting excited about. Given the current smartphone design direction of more screen and less bezel, it's unlikely Google has dropped the idea completely.

Ethiopian Airlines says its pilots received special training on how to deal with the Max's anti-stall software. In January, Boeing said it expected to report revenue between $US109.5 billion and $US111.5 billion in 2019.

Android Q will also prevent apps from accessing shared files unless you want them to, which means you'll be able to control the way apps access photos, videos, and other data.

Freeform windows will be pretty useful in the desktop mode, so if you wanna enable the same - you just need to look for the "Enable freeform windows" option under the "Apps" section in the developer options menu. Again, these features aren't now in the beta, but could well reappear again at a later date.

Some low-level system changes to Android ensure that apps will open faster than in previous versions.

When you have a Pixel to hand, make sure it's not a phone you regularly use. Bugs in the beta can cause you to have to reset the device.

Go to Settings System Advanced System Update to check for available downloads. Be warned: this is unstable beta software.
