Before we go any further ̵1; we do not recommend installing Android Q on your primary phone. Since it is still in the beta scene, there will be bugs that break things and everything except to destroy battery life. If you do not have an old phone compatible with the beta program, it is a good idea to wait until later in the test cycle before you jump in. Google warns users during the sign-up process, "Some features (including core functionality such as your ability to place and receive calls) or programs may not work properly."
Beta testing is fun, safe. But if you need your phone to work 100 percent of the time, keep off.
Having said that, if you are interested in giving feedback and helping Google track bugs, below you will find a list of supported devices and instructions on how to install Android Q right now.
Which entities are eligible?
This year, Google has collaborated with 12 different devices to get the total number of qualified phones to help Android Q to 21. Here they are:
As with previous years, Samsung phones are not included in the beta program. We have reached out to Samsung to learn why, and ask about possible participation before the beta end.
How do I install it?
The process varies depending on the brand of the phone. Pixel users can visit the Google Beta site and select the program. Important phone users must manually browse Android Q on their phone, or wait until the OTA building is available. The official Android Q Beta site lists each supported device and provides a link to instructions from the device manufacturer for enrolling in the beta program.
Can I leave beta?
Yes, but be prepared to factory reset the phone and lose everything that is not backed up elsewhere. Again, you must visit the Android Q Beta list of devices for instructions specific to your phone.
