  • Google releases first Android Q beta for Pixel phones

Users who want are willing to deal with bugs and issues - of which there will be plenty - can enroll in the Android Beta for Pixel devices program here. Not anymore. Android Q gives you a handy option to share your WiFi connection details through a QR code. Android Q will include improvements there, too, allowing apps to request a Dynamic Depth image that includes a JPEG, XMP metadata related to depth elements, and a depth and confidence map all in the same file. Check for Android Q update by going to Settings System Advanced System updates. Apart from that, Google will also let you decide how your app is shown on foldable screens.

In a listing from benchmarking app Geekbench, it appears the Pixel 3 XL Lite has been run through the program, revealing 3GB of RAM and a mid-range Snapdragon 625 chipset. The final edition of the Android Q OS is scheduled to arrive within Q3 this year.

Google has a detailed explanation of what features are contained in Android Q thus far in its blog post announcing the beta availability.

Android Q Has Landed: Here's How To Get It On Your Phone

Note: This feature is still in the early stages of development, and while it worked fine on our Pixel 2, it wasn't working as expected on the Pixel 3 XL, so your mileage may vary. There are also new restrictions on apps launching background tasks without user knowledge, and restrictions that limit access to location data only while the app is in the foreground. The new Files app uses Google's updated Material Theme along with a search bar on top, and a set of filters to help you sort through your stuff sits right below it.

Until very recently, Stock Android lacked a proper file manager app, prompting users to rely on shady third-party alternatives. However there's already plenty for developers - and risk-taking early-adopter users - to get their teeth into with the Android Q beta. This makes possible for the user to offer specialized blurs and bokeh option on the application and the user can also use the data to create 3D images or support AR photography use-cases in the future. Based on an image leaked at this time, it seems that the Mountain View giant can opt for replacing the much-discussed notch with a hole in the display. Instead, you'll need to update with each release.
