Android 10 Q: Beta 3 announced for over 25 devices


Google released the third beta version of Android 10 Q on Tuesday. The new update will be installed not only on pixel smartphones, but on a total of 21 devices from 13 manufacturers such as Huawei, Xiaomi, Sony and others.

With the release of Android Q Beta 3, Google is opening its beta program, just like last year, for smartphones outside its own pixel universe. Instead of just seven devices, 26 models are now supported – including all eight-pixel phones.

As with the first beta versions, all pixel models are still on board – including the first generation three-year-old pixels. Needless to say, the beta can also be installed on the freshly presented middle-class models Pixel 3a and 3a XL, which we also did the same. To install, you just need to register the device on the Android beta website. The updates of the models from other manufacturers are each provided by the companies.

Some companies seem to be more open than others to the beta. Oneplus offers the update for all owners of a 6 / 6T and soon also the 7-series, Sony should be your developer, but you can flash the software via a companion app as a non-developer (at your own risk). Huawei, on the other hand, is more restrictive with the beta: You must be a developer and have at least one app published on the Play Store.
