Android 10 beta rolls out

Android 10 beta rolls out

If you thought the Pixel 3 and 3 XL were prematurely leaked and detailed past year, you may want to keep in mind the first Pixel 3 Lite hands-on photos surfaced online back in November and we still have no idea exactly when Google might be planning to release this mid-ranger.

While this release is available for any user with a Pixel device, it is meant for developers to test compatibility issues and iron out bugs in the new operating system.

Google's VP of Engineering Dave Burke penned a blog post on the Developers Blog that lists the highlights of Android Q. Beta 1 focuses on improving user privacy and security, which includes preventing "more control over location". 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.

Apps will also find it harder to gain access to things such as photos, videos, and audio.

Another new feature Google is including with Q is the ability to change your accent colours. The handsets supported are Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL along with the official Android emulator.

It's time to ready your apps for Android Q, developers.

Launching affordable devices under the Pixel 3 range will give Google access to more sales and exposure in price-sensitive markets. As Google I/O comes and passes, we'll likely see more user-facing features make its way to Android Q. Google sys it's planning six Android Q betas in total. However, I must wonder what delicious dessert will Android Q be named after?

The Android Q Beta 1 is aimed towards the developers for testing their apps for the new version of Android.

In addition to these, Android Q brings new connectivity APIs onboard along with support for more media codecs and camera improvements. A desktop mode, allowing Android apps to run in a windowed format similar to a PC or Mac, was also present.

The same beta program was used for Android Nougat, Oreo and Pie and is very simple, meaning you don't have to get involved in flashing updates or anything complicated. You should be able to disable or reset your advertising ID without being tracked, and Android Q makes that possible. Be warned: this is unstable beta software.
