How to get Android Q on your phone
So, you checked the list and you find that your phone is part of Android Q beta program. So how do you get the Android Q on your phone? It depends on which phone you have. If you have the Google Pixel phone then it is easier. To get Android Q on your Pixel phone all you have to do is:
– Register your device at g.co/androidbeta
– Wait for the Android Q update to show up in your phone’s update software settings. The Q update will be delivered over the air and will install on your phone in the same way any other regular Android update is installed.
Now, if you have a phone that is not manufactured by Google, then you have to follow a slightly different process. In this case, do this:
– Go to https://developer.android.com/preview/devices/index.html and find your phone in the list. Then. For your phone, click on the link that says “get the beta”.
-This will send you to the phone manufacturer’s website. From that site, you will be able to download the beta.
Here is what Google says:
“You can learn how to install Android Q Beta by visiting each partner’s site. Each partner provides a system image that you can download and flash, and/or an over-the-air (OTA) delivery where supported by the partner. Each partner provides support resources to guide you through the installation process – use the GET THE BETA link to jump to the partner’s download/OTA information.”
