Android Q Beta 4 Now Available For Pixel Smartphones Based With API 29

The Android Q Beta 4 finally offers all the features that will be present in the stable Android Q rollout. Developers can now test their app compatibility on any of the Pixel smartphone running on the latest Android Q Beta, and make required changes to fully utilize the Android Q Beta.

If you are already running on Android Q Beta 3, then you will receive an OTA update notification, and the same can installed via system update option. If you are on the stable version of Android 9 Pie, then you can download the update package and sideload the same to the aforementioned devices.

Though it is the fourth iteration of Android Q Beta, it is still bound to have bugs, and the company is most likely to squish them out before releasing the stable update. We do not recommend to install Android Q Beta 4 on a primary smartphone, as it is most likely to break some basic functions like calling, SMS, and networking.

It is also an interesting fact that Google is not neglecting the newly launched affordable pixel smartphones, the Pixel 3a, and the Pixel 3a XL, which are based on mid-tier Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC.

What do we think about Android Q Beta 4?

Google is most likely to announce the stable version of the Android Q in the next few days, and the next big Android update is expected to include a lot of under the hood changes, which will improve the overall performance of the device, and is expected to introduce some of the nifty features like system-wide dark mode, improved multi-tasking capability and a lot more.


Like always, Google Pixel series of devices will be the first set of smartphones that will receive Android Q stable update, and the update will roll out to the third party devices later on. Stay tuned to GizBot to learn more about Android Q update.
