Google resumes Android Q Beta 5 rollout after fixing the installation-related issues

Android Q Beta 5

Yesterday, Google rolled out Android Q Beta 5 for Pixel device via OTA, but due to some technical issues found in Android Q beta 5, the rollout was paused to investigate the bug which was putting a very small percentage of devices back on Beta 4 after multiple reboots, reports Google.

The OTA-based Android Q Beta 5 has been resumed for testing purposes on all Pixel devices, including Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 3a XL. The beta 5 only reaches to enrolled devices via OTA and may start a broader or stable rollout in a few days once testing is complete.

Android Q Beta 5 rollout includes a wide range of new features such as corner-in swipe gesture to activate Google Assistant and a new 'peek' behavior specifically for the back gesture. More importantly, the rollout is aimed at to bring the final Android Q developer APIs (API level 29).

It also includes never-seen-before features like dynamic depth format for photos, WPA3 Wi-Fi security protocol, integrated screen recorder and more. Since the update is for testing purpose, it is not confirmed whether the rollout will accompany these features.
