Watch out, folks: Android Q could arrive later today

The games section of the Google Play Store

First found by xda-developer's Mishaal Rahman, the bug tracker for Android Q is already online.

With the Android P Beta Program, Google opened up the possibility to run early previews of the next version of the Android OS to devices other than its own Nexus or Pixel line. Last year, seven OEMs (apart from Google) offered to help Google test Android Pie on their devices: Essential Phone, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21, and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.

Mr. Malchev could not share the exact number of devices that will be part of the Android Q Beta Program, nor could he reveal which devices would be a part of it.

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.

Major versions of Android have been released in August for the past few years now, but that does not mean its too early to be thinking about Android Q. The next major update to Android is expected to transition to developer preview status as early as today.

Freeda Foreman, Daughter of George, Passes Away at 42
According to a LinkedIn page under her name, Freeda Foreman was attending Sam Houston State, where she studied criminal justice. According to TMZ , Freeda was found around 6 p.m. on Friday in her Texas home by a family member.

Obviously, nothing is concrete until we have confirmation from Google, but all of this certainly suggests that some kind of Android Q beta will be coming soon.

Speaking to the hosts of the Android Developers Backstage podcast, the Project Treble team said the number of companies participating in the Android 10 beta will be bigger than the previous year. But the trend is positive and strong, and I am very happy about this.

Android Q will nearly certainly be unveiled at the annual Google I/O conference in late Spring/early Summer.

Something to look forward to: The future of Android is shaping up as Android Q nears developer preview status. It's likely that the first Android Q beta will be available on some of this year's hottest flagships, in addition to the Pixel 3 series.
