Android Q Beta is official: you can download it now!


Although Android Pie is available in just a very small number of devices (so much so that Google does not even mention it in its distribution data ), the big G has decided to release a new version today. It is not a Developer Preview, but directly from a beta version of Android Q. If you want you can already install it, but be careful, it is a beta version, so you may have errors.

Android Q brings new features to your smartphone, probably the most expected dark mode, but it is not the only new feature that this version has reserved. Those interested in privacy will appreciate the new authorization management system, which is simplified, including the impossibility of using the location when the application is not in use. You will find more information about these new features in our article on the new features of Android Q.

Android Q beta is now available for download

There was a time when Google reserved the tests of its new versions for its own models, that is, the Nexus. Things changed with Android Pie because other devices could also access this trial version (Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, OnePlus 6 and Essential PH-1). Unfortunately, Google did not follow this logic this year, since at the moment only the Pixel can try Android Q.
