Keep in mind, this is only the first beta of Android Q, so that's not a surprise at all.

If you are on your Pixel smartphone, it is still possible to activate this mode, but of course it won't be optimal.

Which devices are eligible for Android Q beta? .

Previously, the first preview build of predecessor Android versions were installable only through manual processor since it was aimed towards developers.

Developers will be able to show floating settings controls in Android Q as well.

There has been more pre-release buzz about the upcoming Android release than usual this year thanks to a leaked build of Android Q several weeks back.

We expect more devices will be added to the Android Q beta before long, but for now, it's pretty much a Pixel party. We managed to get it installed on our Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL immediately after signing up.

What are the key features of Android Q? Android Q will also prevent any background app from launching an activity unless it is important, such as alarms or an incoming call.

As expected, the experimental build can be accessed through the company's Android Q Beta program which is accepting enrollments as of right now and imposes no limitations on the number of participants; anyone interested in trying out the new version of Google's omnipresent operating system is free to do so.

Google has introduced the Android Q Beta.

Starting with Android Q, users will have an option to provide location access to an app only while it is being used. You can even use the data to create 3D images or support AR photography use-cases in the future.

In addition to these, Android Q brings new connectivity APIs onboard along with support for more media codecs and camera improvements. For example, if you're using a browser but you've got no internet connection, a setting panel can pop up and display the Internet Connectivity panel so that you can quickly toggle on Wi-Fi or mobile data without leaving your app. Google says that it has extended support for Android Q to Pixel and Pixel XL on popular demand. Be warned, though: devices flashed manually won't get OTA updates to later beta releases, or indeed to the final version. All apps accessing Downloads must make use of the system file picker as well.
