Watch out, folks: Android Q could arrive later today

The Android Q developer preview, an early version of the major Android update planned for later this year, may launch today. The speculation arrives via XDA Developers Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman (h/t Android Police ^(https://www.appmarsh.com/2019/03/10/the-android-q-beta-is-likely-launching-in-just-a-few-hours/)) based on findings in Google’s Android Q bug tracker.

In the issue tracker, which Google recently made viewable to the public, Google provides a link (highlighted in red in the image below) to a page where you can view previously reported bugs. To access the page, you must head here ^(https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/new?component=190602&template=1050960) and select the OEM option from the drop-down menu.

If you click through the highlighted link, you’ll be taken to this page ^(https://goo.gl/qL5TjA), which, as you can see, has the March 11 date already filled in.

Editor’s Pick

This suggests the tracker will begin to feature bug reports from today onwards, indicating that Android Q will also arrive before the day is done.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for this, but if it does launch today like Android P’s first preview in mid-March 2018 ^(https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2018/05/whats-new-in-android-p-beta.html), Google Pixel owners should be able to test out the software themselves.

Excited? Let me know what you hope for from Android Q in the comments.
