You can install the Android Q beta on any Pixel phone, going all the way back to the 2016 first-gen version. With this new update, users will be getting more privacy and security on their device as it comes with a new permission management setup for tracking location which will be providing its users three options like "allow all time, Deny and Allow only while the app is in use". As well as showing ads the apps' malicious behavior includes constantly opening Google Play or 9Apps Store and redirecting to another particular application, so the developer can profit from additional installations, hiding its icon to prevent uninstallation, and opening a web browser with links provided by the app developer, enabling targeted spear-phishing on users.

Android Q will also let the users jump directly into another app for sharing content using a feature called Sharing Shortcuts.

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

Foldable phone improvements. Android Q will better support the foldable handsets that are just starting to appear this year, with new multi-resume and resizable app capabilities.

We've got Android Q beta up and running on our Pixel 3 XL.

Android Pie is still being rolled out to various smartphones - but that hasn't stopped Google from releasing its next big OS update.

Controlling apps that access photos, videos and audio files have become easier to manage on Android Q. Also, apps are required to use the system file picker inside the Downloads folder so that users can choose which files can be access by the app.

Previously, the first preview build of predecessor Android versions were installable only through manual processor since it was aimed towards developers. PPlus, the latest version is introducing the Y8 stream format to make black and white photos take up less storage.

Android Q improves connections to IoT devices like appliances and printer.

For instance, there's now greater transparency and control for users over the data that individual apps will have access to. At the other end of the scale, there's a Wi-Fi performance mode to increase speed and lower latency at the expense of battery life. Google has also added new connectivity APIs to extend what apps can do with Android connectivity stack.

Fortunately for me, Android is smart, and manages to keep notifications it deems important bubbled up to the top of my list.

Those with compatible phones who are interested in testing this early version of Android Q just need to enroll their device and then check for updates.
