Google Releases Android Q Beta for Developers, Early Adopters

The first public beta of Android Q, the successor to Google's current Android 9.0 Pie OS for smartphones, is now ready to download.

Keep in mind, Android Q is now in beta - the first beta at that! - so features will likely change or be removed altogether.

The third option is to set up an Android Emulator to run the beta. Once enrolled, you'll "receive regular over-the-air (OTA) updates to the latest Android Q builds through (and including) the final release", Google explains.

With Android Q, you have a few seconds after an app has been removed to undo the change.

In the case of the Pixel 3 XL, there are two 8MP front-facers, one with wide, and one with ultra-wide angle lens. With this change, users can prevent this and limit location access to apps only while they are being used.

Huawei and Samsung have both announced devices that can physically fold in half with Mate X and Galaxy Fold launching later this year. And when connected to an external monitor, you will be able to use the new desktop mode with your Android phone.

These improvements also make it easier to manage IoT devices over local Wi-Fi networks, Burke stated. No more turning your router this way and that to find the sticker with the password on it. If so, you can now give Android Q a try. This saves you from having to deal with spam calls directly.

Starting in Android Q, apps can request a Dynamic Depth image which consists of a JPEG, XMP metadata related to depth related elements, and a depth and confidence map embedded in the same file on devices that advertise support. The changes let these greyscale images be saved in RAW format, which is good for anybody or any app wanting to process them; a new data storage method means the images will take up less space too. Google says this approach "can be useful when you need more control over testing, such as for automated testing or regression testing".

Android Q is also adding Settings Panels to help you quickly enable a specific setting that an app needs. You simply long-press, pick an option and you're done. However, there is nothing to stop an app that has been granted that permission continuing to track users' locations even when it is not in use.

Thanks to some new codecs, and a developer tool to analyze the capability of the phone an app's installed on, you will enjoy improved video and audio quality on phones running Android Q.

The first benchmark result, which appeared back in January, suggests that the Pixel 3 XL Lite will feature 6GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 710 chipset.

Given that numerous services offered by the search giant rely on machine learning and the device performs some of these AI tasks, it would be an interesting decision for Google to include the Snapdragon 625 processor into its mid-range smartphones, which lacks the improved AI performance of some of the newer chipsets.

The Google Pixel 3 Lite XL is making yet another appearance in the Geekbench Browser database today, this time seemingly confirming that full name rather than operating under "Foxconn Pixel 3 XL" or "Google Pixel 3a XL" aliases.

However, those wanting to give it try early could be disappointed as is now only available on the Pixel range of phones.

The Beta 1 is only available for Pixel Devices.
