Until now, the firm rolled out the first preview of the Android OS to non-developers only after rolling out the second developer beta.
If you are on your Pixel smartphone, it is still possible to activate this mode, but of course it won't be optimal. This will prevent users from needing to go into Settings to change things like NFC or mobile data in order to use an app. Check for Android Q update by going to Settings System Advanced System updates.
For now, the Android Q beta is limited to Pixel devices including first generation.
The beta is available to anyone with ANY Pixel phone - that includes the original Pixel and Pixel XL, as well as 2 and 3. The Android Runtime (ART) in Android Q can pre-compile parts of an app to reduce launch times. Android Q also brings in a new Setting Panels, an API that will allow applications to show setting to the users in the context of their app.

Especially when the Giants could be getting their quarterback of the future in this year's National Football League draft. It also makes the Browns a strong contender to win the AFC North and possibly even make a Super Bowl run.
Android Q Beta 1 showcases Google's new security and privacy protection features and permissions, protecting users' information from location to filesystem and more. It is worth noting that unlike what happened with Android 9 Pie past year, Google is making its Android Q beta 1 available non-developers as well.
Beta 1 will deliver a new Sharing Shortcuts feature that will let the user share content with someone in another app. There'll be new limits on access to files in shared external storage, for example, as well as the ability for users to lock down location sharing with an app only when that app is in the foreground.
With Android Q, apps can request a "dynamic Depth Image" which basically allows you to use specialized blurs and bokeh options as well as enjoy 3D images and support for AR photography. Google is offering a system image of Android Q that you can flash onto your device if you're comfortable doing stuff like that, or you can sign up for the Android Beta Program and have updates pushed to you over the air. In June we can get accesses to the fourth built which are meant for testing while the 5th and 6th beta are more like the final beta. Hence the headline, if you're using an Android One handset like the ones hawked by Nokia, or you're using Google's Pixel handsets, you'll definitely see a benefit. Instead, you'll need to update with each release.
