As we know the first Android P Developer Preview build was launched in the middle of March 2018 and now almost at the same time, we could see the Android Q Beta getting released. Google has opened up Android Q Beta bug tracker and it will be launched on 11th of March. Furthermore, the bug tracker’s filter mentioned that only the reports that are made after the 11th of March will be taken into consideration. This indicates that the beta could be launched today and we are eagerly waiting for it.
Google has not officially given the list of OEM’s that will be part of the Android Q Beta this year, but it confirmed that a larger number companies will be a part of it when compared to last year. In 2018, it was 7 OEM’s, excluding Google, have got the access to test Android Pie on the devices and those were, Essential Phone, OnePlus 6, Nokia 7 Plus, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Vivo X21, Oppo R15 Pro and Sony’s Xperia XZ2.
This year we could see OEM’s like Samsung, Huawei, LG along with RealMe could be a part of the Android Q Beta testing programme. Generally, we have seen Google launching its new Android Versions around August and we can expect the same this year also. The Android Q Beta bug tracker can be used to report issues related to Android Q Beta only and the testers can star or comment on an issue which has been already posted.
To report an issue, the tester needs to give as much information as they can in there report and it should at least include information like the Android Beta built that they are using, the device that is being used, the procedure to reproduce the problem and few more which are listed on the tracker. Are you excited to get this new flavor of Android on your device? We need to wait for a few more months for it.
