Google also opened an Android Q bug tracker earlier today, as spotted by XDA Developers Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman. According to an online report, an alleged screengrab of an internal Google calendar has revealed that the search giant is planning to roll out the first beta of the next major Android release tomorrow.

Google could launch the first beta for Android Q on March 13.

With Android Q Beta 1, there are a bunch of new privacy features. Furthermore, the Android Q beta will be available on even more devices that Android P, a Googler confirmed. Earlier, beta and early updates were limited to Google's Pixel and Nexus devices. This means a larger number of users will have the option of trying out all the cool features of Google's next Android release before the final version is released in the third quarter of the year. The Android Developer, named Illiyan Malchev made some comments about the fact that the operating system might support some other Android smartphones, too. The update is called Android Q and Google announced today that the beta program for operating system updates will run smoother than with previous versions.

"At Google I/O [2018], when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that awesome", Malchev said.

While some smartphones are yet to receive Android Pie, Google seems to be very enthusiastic with its upcoming Android version, for now, simply dubbed as Android Q. "But the trend is positive and strong, and I am very happy about this", said Malchev. As you might notice, big names like Samsung, LG, and Huawei are missing from the list, but this year the number of Android smartphones that will be compatible with the Android Q Beta will be bigger. "I can not share the exact numbers yet", the report quoted Malchev as saying.
