Google Launches Android Q beta which is now only available for all Pixel owners

Google has released the first beta of Android Q, and after playing “spot the differences,” we’re here to report our findings. For this first preview release, Android Q is mostly a lot of small tweaks for users and new APIs for developers. One of the best thing about the Android Q is the battery indicator that appears in the notification panel like when you pull down the notification panel it shows you the exact battery time remaining indicator that will say things like 1 day 5 hr left or it’ll also say like “until 7:00pm”, which basically means that if your normal usage continues, the phone will die at that time. It’s just an estimate, and sure, it will change if my usage drastically changes, but it’s much more useful than a percentage. More battery information is always a plus.

Android Q Beta 1 is now available for download only for all Pixel Owners. The first beta includes a preview SDK for developers with system images for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, and the official Android Emulator.

A major change to the functionality of the notification panel has to do with the dismissal of notifications. In Android 9 Pie, you could swipe in either direction and the notification would go away, while a careful “half swipe” would reveal buttons for snoozing and a notification settings gear. In Android Q, only swiping from left to right will dismiss a notification. Swiping from right to left will only move the notification halfway across, and the snooze and settings button will pop up.

Android Q Beta is now only available for Pixel users, but other smartphone users will also get the update of Android Q Beta soon. The Final version of Android Q coming-soon.
