It's that time of the year when developers and advanced users look forward to the beta builds of Google's latest Android release. When Google released the first Android P beta previous year, it supported a variety of devices not just the Pixel 2. Furthermore, the Android Q beta will be available on even more devices that Android P, a Googler confirmed.
Q: I noticed that when we announced the Android Pie preview at last year's I/O, there were several devices that were announced at that time, which I thought was new to have that many different devices coming out. Some of the phones that we saw running the Android 9 Pie early previews including Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21 and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.More news: Import Ban On Genetically Modified Salmon In U.S. Lifted

This comes hot on the heels of another revelation that Google will add more phone companies to the Android Q beta, as Iliyan Malchev from Google's Project Treble team said on the Android Developers Backstage podcast. Google is yet to officially say anything about Android Q, however given that the company recently made the Android Q beta bug tracker live, it is not too far-fetched to believe that beta launch is imminent.
A template explaining how to file bug reports for Android Q Beta was spotted by XDA Developers Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman. The fact that there is a Google Pixel 2 in the wild that is already running the build indicates that the work on Android Q is going on in full force. This is apparently a confirmation that the beta will drop on March 11th. Generally, we have seen Google launching its new Android Versions around August and we can expect the same this year also. Are you excited to get this new flavor of Android on your device? Not many options out there, so you can throw your guess.
