Android Q makes sharing your WiFi password with friends super easy

Unlike the previous Android built, this new Android Q preview update can be received over-the-air. However, if you've been waiting for a built-in screen recorder in Android Q, you'll be glad to know that it's here too, in some hidden way at least. We expect that will be some time this summer for Android Q.

Google says once a Pixel device is registered for the Android Q beta it will automatically receive updates for the latest beta version of Android. Things had changed with Android Pie (P, at the time) because new devices can access it (Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, OnePlus 6, and Essential PH-1). We managed to get it installed on our Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL immediately after signing up. Users will also get more control on apps when it comes to accessing the location.

Another new feature Google is including with Q is the ability to change your accent colours. Owners of eligible devices are able to manually flash Android Q system images which are now also available for download from Google's servers. The new Files app uses Google's updated Material Theme along with a search bar on top, and a set of filters to help you sort through your stuff sits right below it.

Thomas reportedly wanted to become the highest-paid safety in the National Football League based on average salary. Tuesday, the New Orleans Saints agreed to a contract with Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray .

Other features of Android Q include new codecs such as AV1, Opus encoding and HDR10+ on supported devices, revamped Sharing Shortcuts, improved ART runtime and Dynamic Depth open source format that allow third-party apps to apply specialized burs and bokeh options. For example, if you're using a browser but you've got no internet connection, a setting panel can pop up and display the Internet Connectivity panel so that you can quickly toggle on Wi-Fi or mobile data without leaving your app.

For starters, there is an Android Q beta program that any Pixel through Pixel 3 owner can partake in. You can grab download links for each phone from Google's website. That's just insane talk, and we won't have that kind of madness corrupting the good, important work Google's doing with Android Q. Just, seriously - get out. The first four betas will be for testing purposes while betas 5 & 6 are intended release candidates, which are the final beta versions of the completed software update.
