Android Q Beta: New Features, Release Dates and How to Get It

Renders of the Pixel 4 XL

You will find more information about these new features in our article dedicated to the new features of Android Q. Android Q has a new feature that lets you create a QR code for your Wi-Fi network, or scan a QR code to join a Wi-Fi network, directly in the device's Wi-Fi settings. Right now, users can either grant or deny location access to an app which leads to many apps silently tracking the location of their users in the background. Google expects to have six beta releases this year before the final rollout, so you might want to wait for another couple of iterations. A report a few days ago said Android Q would be available on even more non-Pixel handsets than Android P, but that's probably an announcement that's coming down the road. However, it does also lock out legitimate apps that use clipboard data for other purposes, like passing them to a PC for seamless copying and pasting between devices. Users who wish to install this new OS version may need to enrol in Google's program for the goal beforehand. There are also expanded privacy-related permission pop-ups for new or newly-started apps.

Android Q comes with plenty of other changes aimed at improving the overall experience of using the OS.

For app developers, it will mean bringing their products up-to-date with the latest restrictions, rules, allowances and making sure that their old apps don't fall off the Play Store.

It's potentially disappointing news for anyone hoping Google would offer an "affordable" flagship variant to rival the likes of the iPhone XR and Samsung Galaxy S10e - which offer a range of flagship features at a lower price point.

New Zealand armed police respond to ongoing firearms incident in mosque
Stuff is reporting shots being fired at Christchurch hospital. "They are one of us.The person who perpetrated this is not". Police attempt to move people away from outside a mosque in central Christchurch, New Zealand , Friday.

In Android Q, the permissions have expanded.

As noticed by Michael Young on Twitter, Android Q has a new option that allows users to force desktop mode.

Some low-level system changes to Android ensure that apps will open faster than in previous versions. Bugs in the beta can cause you to have to reset the device. All you have to do is head over to this link to sign up for the beta program, or download the appropriate Android Q version manually at this link. Yeah, screen recording isn't enabled by default but Android Q allows you to record your screen simply by flipping the switch on a feature flag in the developer options setting page.

We must however repeat: this beta is more for developers rather than for general use.
