Android Q’s latest beta is available today, and it’s coming to 15 non-Google phones

The latest version of Android Q beta is released today for all Google Pixel phones, as well as for 15 other phones from manufacturers such as Sony, OnePlus, Nokia, LG, Asus, Vivo and Xiaomi. Google made a similar move to expand the beta device group during last year's I / O, but this is officially the largest range of devices that have not yet received Android beta software, an encouraging sign that maybe, perhaps maybe Android Q will be widely available before the end of 2019.

The new update will arrive at the original Google Pixel (a somewhat miraculous inclusion, given the last major update of the phone was supposed to be Android Pie ), Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 3. Here is the complete list of devices that can enroll in the Android Q beta:

  • Asus ZenFone 5Z
  • Essential PH-1
  • HMD Global Nokia 8.1
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
  • LG G8 ThinQ
  • OnePlus 6T
  • Oppo Reno
  • Realm 3 Pro
  • Sony Xperia XZ3
  • Tecno Spark 3Pro
  • Live X27
  • Live NEX S
  • Live NEX
  • Mix 3 5G
  • Xiaomi Mi 9

This beta update will bring some of the new features u nveiled in the Google I / O scenario, including the new dark theme that is activated throughout the operating system, its new gestures similar to those of iPhone and more. My colleague Dieter Bohn had exclusive access to the new beta and all its new features, so check out his impressions.

If you already have the beta version installed on your Google Pixel, Pixel 2 or Pixel 3, you can check the update on your phone by going to the settings menu. From there, scroll to "System" and touch it. Then, click on "Advanced" and finally, touch "System Update" to see if it is available. For those with pixels (or any of the recently supported devices above) that are not yet enrolled in the beta program, it is easy to install. We have a guide that takes you through the process.

Now, in its third beta version, Android Q is probably more stable than ever, although you may find some serious errors. This software is primarily intended for developers to test their applications, but you can still have fun with it. Just think twice before installing this on the phone you trust for calls and text messages.

Developing … we are adding more to this publication, but you can continue along with our live blog Google I / O 2019 to receive the news even faster.
