If so, you can now give Android Q a try.

We expected the preview to arrive soon, as it's becoming an annual tradition for the company to release a developer beta of its next version of Android in early March.

Lori Loughlin dropped from Hallmark channel roles after cheating scandal
Loughlin did not appear in court on Tuesday because she was filming a movie in Vancouver at the time of Giannulli's arrest. Update: A Hallmark spokesperson tells us that When Calls the Heart has been pulled from the March 17th schedule.

We've got Android Q beta up and running on our Pixel 3 XL. Pixel phones are eligible for the Android Q beta download, though remember that this is not the final build and still in the testing phase, which means it will have bugs and other issues. And of course, so Android enthusiasts can have the pride of knowing they're using the latest bleeding edge software. Right now, users can either grant or deny location access to an app which leads to many apps silently tracking the location of their users in the background. This has been a problem because advertisers would use hardware IDs like your phones IMEI or MAC address to target ads. Also, the next Android version will include a new settings panel which will let you see key system settings such as Wi-Fi connection, network, and airplane mode on third-party apps via a floating window. Android Q is also adding "experimental support" for ANGLE on top of Vulkan, which is "a graphics abstraction layer designed for high-performance OpenGL compatibility across implementations". So, you could get better portrait mode snaps.

As for Android Q's official name, we still have no clue.

Google has also improved privacy and performance features of Wi-Fi and has also given an option for adaptive Wi-Fi wherein the user can opt for "high performance and low latency". Android's painfully slow sharing menu could get a boost, too. The Sharing Shortcuts mechanism is similar to the way App Shortcuts work.

Some low-level system changes to Android ensure that apps will open faster than in previous versions. In the video department, Android Q will make it easier for apps to figure out the video rendering capabilities of an Android device. According to 9to5Google, there's also a vibration to accompany the sound your Pixel makes when you plug in a charger, or pop it on a wireless charger in the case of the Pixel 3.

Something to look forward to: Google has finally released the Android Q beta with a big focus on privacy. Keep in mind, devices that have the original image flashed will not receive OTA updates for future beta updates. Don't install it on your daily driver.
