Screengrab of an internal Google calendar has now surfaced, revealing Google’s plans of rolling out the first beta of Android Q. The software is expected to come with a number of new features.
It’s the time of the year when Google usually announces the developer versions of its upcoming Android software. Last year in March it was Android Pie, and in 2019 it’s time for Android Q which according to latest reports could be made available to developers as a beta preview as early as tomorrow.
Earlier, some reports had claimed that the beta of the software would start rolling out by March 11. However, the latest reports appear more credible as an alleged screengrab of an internal Google calendar has now surfaced, revealing Google’s plans of rolling out the first beta of Android Q tomorrow.
Having said that, this is still very much speculation as Google is yet to make any official announcements on Android Q. But with Android Q beta bug tracker recently going live, it is quite possible that an official announcement is just around the corner.
The screengrab in question was first shared on Reddit and hints towards the possibility of an over-the-air rollout for the Android Q update. The Reddit user claims that the screengrab has been taken from a “developer calendar of some sort” which he gained access to because of him being a developer at Google.
With Android Q, Google is planning to expand the supported devices for the beta program. However, there is little clarity over the support for third-party devices will be available from the first day.
Android Q is expected to come with a number of new features. The headline feature, however, is expected to be the inclusion of a new system-wide dark mode. The mode will include the settings menu, launcher and the notification shade. As per leaks and rumours, the dark mode can either be permanently enabled or can be scheduled to start at certain times of the day.
