Android Q Beta is now available on a range of popular devices from top device-makers, Here are the devices that can access the Android Q beta and how to get involved.
The Android Q has been announced, and some people can test the next big mobile operating system right now. While Google remains tight-lipped about Android Q’s name.
Downloading the Android Q beta would be pretty simple for the ordinary user. But note that it’s a beta and you’re likely to find bugs and other issues. If you decide it’s too much or simply don’t like it, going back to an earlier version you’ll have to flash your device back to Android 9.0 Pie, which means you’ll lose any phone data that isn’t backed up. Please keep this in mind before you begin the process.
Backup Your Data
Betas are limited and voluntary for a reason — they’re unfinished products, and they usually carry bugs. As such, it’s best not to go into them with anything to lose. Make sure you’ve backed up all of your data — including photos, videos, and contacts — before you download and install the beta. Things can go wrong in betas, and it’s worth making sure everything of value is fully backed up.
How to install the Android Q
- Head to the Android Beta Program website.
- Click Opt-in on the device that you’d like to use for the beta. Your device will now be enrolled in the Android Beta Program.
- Agree to the terms and conditions of the beta program and press Join Beta.
- On your phone, open Settings > System > Advanced > System Updates. Press the Restart Now button, and your phone should install the Android Q beta.
That’s really all there is to it. Again, remember that you may need to be patient with your device as it will likely have some bugs and other issues.
