Android Q Beta Arriving on March 13, Tips Leaked Google Document


The sample (which reportedly could be found here but has since been removed) seemed to be directed at OEMs, and advises reporters to check if the issue has already been filed by clicking a link (, still working as of publication) leading to a repository - which only lists bug tickets created on or after March 11, 2019.

Obviously, nothing is concrete until we have confirmation from Google, but all of this certainly suggests that some kind of Android Q beta will be coming soon. That, of course, suggests that the Android Q beta could launch as early as today.

For Android Q, there's the hope that more phones from more manufacturers will join the pre-release ranks in engaging its users in new software. This information has been revealed by Android Developer Illiyan Malchev in the Android Developers Backstage podcast.

Even though it still feels like we're just getting going with Android Pie in some ways, the next version of Android is just around the corner. "Malchev stated ".when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that incredible.

That should be exciting news to anyone looking to test the new version of Android, whether they're developers or not. We got our first glimpse at Android Q last month via a leaked build. "The number is bigger for the upcoming Android release, which I am very happy about". According to staff at GSM Arena, the Android Q Developer Preview will launch during Google I/O conference May 7, but the folks over at AndroidAuthority are calling for a release as early as today due to a bug tracker showing a date of March 11 as the day that public reports will be accepted.

With Android Pie in 2018, this mean manufacturers like Sony, Oppo, OnePlus, Nokia, Essential and Xiaomi were able to join the early beta phase and have the new software available to try, weeks before it was released publicly.
