As expected the Android Q Beta 4 has officially arrived. The Beta 4 will offer a much stabler platform for developers to test the compatibility of the apps. Google has also published a standard API level (29) alongside the official SDK for developers.
Google has been toying with the idea of ditching the back button since the launch of Android Pie, but with Android Q it’s finally pulling the trigger.
During the opening keynote of I/O 2019, Google announced that the third beta of Android Q will be available on a total of 21 phones from 13 different OEMs. Apart from the Pixels, Google is expanding the Android Q beta program to devices from Huawei, Sony, Xiaomi, and others.
At I/O 2019, Google provided more details about Android 10 Q. While Google had first unveiled Android Q in March this year, Google has worked more on the OS since then and has provided more details about the next major release of Android.
Back in March, Google launched the first beta of Android Q, the newest version of its Android operating system. Now, almost a month later, and the company is back at it again with the second beta.
Android Q is here. Well, at least the first developer beta of Android Q is here. This gives us a sneak peek into the next major version of Android a couple of months early. Android Q Beta 1 can be installed on all Pixel devices – from Pixel 1 to Pixel 3 XL. While most of the awesome features are either half baked or hidden, it gives us an idea as to what Android Q will look like. Here are the top Android Q features you should know about.
Google today released the first beta of Android Q, the next major version of the OS. While the final version of Android Q will be released to the public in Q3, Google is taking the time in between to refine the OS and take developer feedback to further improve it. For this, it has released a beta version of Android Q as well.
Google today announced the first beta of Android Q which comes with a number of changes and improvements. The update focuses more on privacy and security while also adding support for hardware devices and technology that we will see become commonplace in 2019.
Google introduced navigation gestures in Android 9.0 Pie. Sadly, the company’s gesture implementation leaves a lot to be desired. It feels half-baked at best, with Google only doing away with the Recent Apps button and keeping the back and home button intact. With Android Q, Google intends to refine its navigation system further and completely do away with the back button.
Being able to switch from one carrier to another is still a relatively tricky situation in the United States, but it may be getting even harder once Android Q rolls around.
