The Android Q beta will include more smartphones than Android’s Pie

First spotted my Mishaal Rahman from XDA Developers the bug tracker for Android Q Beta has been opened up by Google.

The most common Android version is still Android 6.x Marshmallow, which launched in 2015, and is still running on more than 1 in 5 devices worldwide.

With Android Pie in 2018, this mean manufacturers like Sony, Oppo, OnePlus, Nokia, Essential and Xiaomi were able to join the early beta phase and have the new software available to try, weeks before it was released publicly. The Pixel-exclusive Developer Preview will then last for a couple of months, after which we expect the Android Q Beta program to take over, presumably at Google I/O 2019 which is on May 7, 2019.

He eventually freed himself after managing to push away from the whale. Bryde's whales apparently only feed on large fish and plankton.

As Android Police reports, Iliyan Malchev from Google's Project Treble team revealed the move in a discussion on the Android Developers Backstage podcast.

Google is increasing the scope of its Project Treble programme for the upcoming version of Android.

Leaks have suggested we're going to see a system-wide dark mode, which does more than just darken the app drawer and quick settings tile. If it's similar to Android Pie in release schedule, we might even seen the first developer previews landing very soon.

Only 20000 jobs added in February, far fewer than expected
That said, I expect a strong gain in payrolls of 190,000 and expect to see the unemployment decline to 3.8 percent. He said that average new jobs growth over a three-month period was 186,000 which "is entirely respectable".

To report an issue, the tester needs to give as much information as they can in there report and it should at least include information like the Android Beta built that they are using, the device that is being used, the procedure to reproduce the problem and few more which are listed on the tracker. I can not share the exact numbers yet. Of late, we have heard several features about that Google is planning to bring to the consumers with the Android Q software.

Illiyan didn't reveal the exact number of devices that will possibly be a part of the Android Q Beta Program, neither did he identify the phones.
