Usually, with Android versions, Google launches a developer preview version of its next version of Android in March. Followed by a public beta that anyone can upload in May when they host the annual Google I / O conference.
Google decided this year to do things a little differently by pushing the first developer preview and public beta on the same day on March 13, 2019. On April 3, Beta 2 was released with some bug fixes and new features. Recently, Google launched the beta version 3 on May 7 during the annual I / O conference.
In addition to Pixel phones, you can also try the new version of Android Q on other phones like OnePlus 6T, Sony Xperia Z3, LG G8, etc. In fact, the trial version is now available for 21 phones.
