Google has reportedly released the Beta 1 Android Q operating system that can be tried on a number of smartphones.
This operating system can be tested on Pixel smartphones, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and Android Emulators.
This is the fourth year Google has released a preview version for developers. However, the first preview of Android Q this time is a little different, which can be downloaded via Over the Air (OTA).
The preview version of the previous Android can only be downloaded and installed manually. Because the Beta operating system is indeed only intended for developers.
Android Q Beta 1 version features
In this Beta 1 version of Android Q, Google brings several feature updates so that users have more control over the devices they use.
For example, the Device Location feature for controlling application access on the device location. Or the Scoped Storage feature that can be used to manage application access to documents that are on the device.
Android Q Beta 1 is also designed to be used on Android devices with a foldable screen. Later, Android Q can be maximized for devices with a wider screen.
Quoting Venture Beat, Android Q Beta 1 will be available until next April. After that according to schedule, Google will release Beta 2 to Beta 6 every month.
Google usually introduces the latest Android version in the Google I / O title every mid-year. Then the brand-new operating system will be released in the third quarter (Q3) in that year.
