Android users keep guessing a dessert name starting with Q… Android Quiche, Queen of pudding, or it can be Quesito… hmm! The mystery about the name is not solved yet. But it will soon be revealed by Google.

Latest Android Version Q Beta 1 Download on Pixel

It is very fascinating to hear that the first beta version of Android Q was already launched on 13 March 2019 and is available for download via OTA (over-the-air). Beta 1 version is available only for Pixel devices - Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL.

What is Android Q Beta Version?

Android or any other software always launches their Beta version just for testing and developing bug-free version before launching for public use. Android always comes with some beta version to make a user-friendly and error-free platform through feedback. According to Google, Android Q brings the six Beta versions.

  • Beta 1-3 – They are the initial version, which tends to identify the issue regarding the migration of old apps, new features, and APIs through feedback. It is a phase of 3 months where users gather information and give feedback via the issue tracker about the issue related to the UI. And Android keeps working on addressing the problems.

  • Beta 4 – It will be an updated beta version that relies on updated API and other features. Beta 4 will possibly launch during June 2019 with the final SDK and compatible in-built apps.

  • Beta 5-6  Both these Beta versions will be closer to the final structure of Android Q. They will be responsible for the actual and conclusive image of the Q version.

Publically Android Q Launching Date

It is too early to guess the official launching date of Android Q. But as per the previous launch events of the new version of Android, most probably it will launch in September 2019. The beta 1 version of Android Q was launched recently (13 March 2019) on Pixel 1, Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and other Pixel phones.

Expected Features of Android Q:

Android Q is also going to be as easy as Pie for us. Android Pie is creating a buzz all over the world. Users loved it and all its new features. Pie gave the most compatible UI, but many techno freaks criticized its gesture feature over the back button. Android Q will possibly solve this issue with some updated landmarks. That is why users have lots of expectations from Android Q. So we are going to reveal some expected features of Q.

R.I.P. Back Button!

The Back button has become history with Android Pie, but users are still criticizing the new gesture feature. The Pie gesture over the back button looks incomplete and irrelevant. So it is a chance that Android Q comes with a better option over the back button. It is a rumor about the back button. Therefore we cannot finalize our opinion because it is not officially announced by the Android community.

Advanced Theme Option

Built-in Screen Recording

Damm! Gone are the days when users rely on third-party apps for screen recording. Q comes with a built-in screen recording feature. It allows users to record screens without using any third-party apps. The most requested feature, Built-in screen recording, is added in the Beta 1 version. So without any doubt, screen recording will be a notable feature in Android Q.

Apt For Foldable Phones

2019 will be a year of foldable smartphones. To jump on the bandwagon Android team is kept working on the responsive design to give the best experience for foldable smartphone users. Smartphones are changing with compatible sizes. That is why Android Q has to perform responsive UI with different sizes of smartphones.

Multi-Split Screen

We know there is already a feature called split-screen, but it requires some improvisation. With a multi-split screen, users can enjoy several apps at the same time. The limitation of two-split screens is not enough for users. If all the rumors-related features are added in the Android Q, then Boom! It is going to be the most user-centric Android version of all time.

3 Wishlist Feature Every User Want to See in Android Q

Easy One Hand Mode

We all agree that Android always focuses on easy & user-friendly UI. That is why it is widely used in the world. Android has a range of users like general, knowledgeable, and technically expert. So one hand mode is a must feature that should be a concern for Android. Although many smartphone brands allow users to use mobile with one hand, sometimes it is not relevant for users. So an updated in-built feature should be announced by Android.

Improved UI

Many smartphone companies give custom UI with the Android operating system. This supports voice recording, themes, and many useful customized features. We are not complaining or judging the stock Android, but some additional features will make it more handy and favorable. Android users always demand attractive UI. That is why they lead to custom UI to perform better.

Shortcut key

Like iOS has a white home button or Assertive Touch button that keeps roaming with users. It helps in navigation and a quick menu. It will be a helpful feature for Android users. Many think that it seems like copying the iPhone. But it can help users for easy and user-friendly UI feel. Siri-type AI chatbots are also appreciated by Android users.
