On Monday, March 11, Mishaal Rahman, the editor in chief for XDA Developers, noticed Google had opened a bug tracker for an Android Q beta.

Since there was no word on March 11 or even 12, Android Police is reporting that the Android Q Beta releases on Wednesday, March 13.

Rumor has it, Android Q will come with many features, such as a native face unlock, limitation for background apps and app downgrades, a dark mode for the entire system and even a desktop mode. According to the listing, the Google Pixel 2 running Android Q scored 1,856 in single-core and 6,307 in multi-core tests. The Redditor writes that he got the screengrab from someone who claims that he's a developer at Google and the calendar visible in the image is a "developer calendar of some sort". If you have a spare device go and get it ready for some Q beta.

This piece of information was revealed by Android Developer Mr. Illiyan Malchev in the Android Developers Backstage podcast (Source: XDA Developers).

On the latest issue, Ms Brooker added on Twitter: "Look at what happens when we let one company control everything". Euronews has reached out to Facebook for comment but did not receive a reply at the time of publication.

Android Q also supports the devices with foldable screens better with new features.

Last year, during the same, annual I/O developer conference Google had made the announcement that the Android Pie beta version would be made available to devices from manufacturers like Essential, Nokia, OnePlus, Oppo, Sony, Vivo, and Xiaomi. We had, I believe, eight OEMs including Pixels, so seven OEMs other than Pixel. "Malchev stated ".when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that incredible. Moreover, the bug tracker hints at the likely release date of the upcoming version of the Android operating system.

Asper TechRadar, Samsung, HTC, LG and Huawei could be the ones hopping aboard the Android Q beta train. "But the trend is positive and strong, and I am very happy about this", he said. I can not share the exact numbers yet.
