  • Android Qs first beta is here for all Pixel devices Heres whats new

You can do this if you don't have a Pixel device. And of course, so Android enthusiasts can have the pride of knowing they're using the latest bleeding edge software.

With Android Q, apps can request a Dynamic Depth image which has a JPEG, XMP metadata that is related to depth related elements and confidence map embedded in the same of the device to advertising support.

Android Pie is still being rolled out to various smartphones - but that hasn't stopped Google from releasing its next big OS update. The beta build can be installed on the Pixel devices by enrolling in the Android Beta Program first.

Along with some neat new features Google is also getting ready for the explosion in foldable phones by including native support for these bendy devices.

In a listing from benchmarking app Geekbench, it appears the Pixel 3 XL Lite has been run through the program, revealing 3GB of RAM and a mid-range Snapdragon 625 chipset.

What are the key features of Android Q?

Similar to iOS, now Android users have the ability to prevent apps from using the location while running in the background. Android Q is comes baked in with a newer version of Google's own Files (formerly Files Go) app.

Google has a detailed explanation of what features are contained in Android Q thus far in its blog post announcing the beta availability.

To install Android 10 Q right now on your smartphone and test the new features, you can opt for any of the two options.

The Android Q beta is now only open to owners of the Pixel, Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 range. For example, if you're using a browser but you've got no internet connection, a setting panel can pop up and display the Internet Connectivity panel so that you can quickly toggle on Wi-Fi or mobile data without leaving your app.

For downloading the images, use this link.

In addition to these, Android Q brings new connectivity APIs onboard along with support for more media codecs and camera improvements. You should be able to disable or reset your advertising ID without being tracked, and Android Q makes that possible. Google expects to have six beta releases this year before the final rollout, so you might want to wait for another couple of iterations.
