Yesterday, March 13, proved to be a pretty exciting day. Why? Google launched the first public beta for Android Q!

The beta is available now for all Pixel, Pixel 2, and Pixel 3 phones and allows early adopters to start messing around with Google's next big Android version before anyone else.

Taking a gander through the AC forums, it looks like a lot of folks are eager to do so.

I will. Google normally does a good job with betas and I enjoy playing with them.

Ive jumped on every Beta from the beginning. I always get angry when I do because I typically have issues(which is why its a beta duh) and tell myself never to jump on beta again. I have to say, the Pie beta was one of the smoothest of them all and the initial beta was good enough for a daily driver.

If it's anywhere near as stable as DP1 was for P, Absolutely!

  • No. I just downloaded Android Z.
  • Ehh, I did enough beta testing. I'll let the rest of you deal with the bugs and stuff. Let me know when you're done ;)
  • No. It's Pie day.
  • Been using it since yesterday afternoon.
    Battery drain slightly quicker, there is some stuttering, and dark mode has some inconsistencies but otherwise no issues.
    On the flip side I haven't come across anything that made the upgrade worth wild other then dark theme.
  • I am sick and tired of beta testing to be honest
  • I have it. Only found one app that it broke so far. I enjoy being on the bleeding edge
  • I have and it seems to run better than the last update of 9, so far only one app broken, Google pay even work
