It’s better too late than never… The wait for Android Q is over now, it is one step closer to its launching. The final beta 6 of Andriod’s latest version. Now the testing & feedback is close to the end.
Beta 6 of Android Q was launched on 7 August, thus, rumors are also rendering in users’ minds about the release date of the upcoming version of Android.
As we all are acquainted with the process before launching any Android version. Every Android version goes through the process of the beta version in terms of feedback.
Android Q also does the same, It came with 6 beta version. With every beta version, Android Q is getting better and bug-free UI. All the beta versions are open to the developers for feedback and bug fixing. This is the right way to launch any product without any hassle.
Releasing Date for Android Q
Whenever any new product or service is formed in its actual shape, rumors start rendering to mind. The first rumor for any upcoming product is the launching date. Because it matters.
The official announcement about releasing the date for android is still unclear. Some rumors are waving in the air that is enough to mislead you.
Dave Burke, VP of Engineering at Android Posted on 7 Aug, “We’re just a few weeks away from the official release of Android Q! As we put the final polish on the new platform, today we’re rolling out Beta 6, the last Beta update”.
He also added, “Now is the time to make sure your apps are ready before we bring the official release to consumers. Take this opportunity to finish up your testing and publish your app updates soon to give users a smooth transition to Android Q.”
So it’s not clear what will be the birthdate for Android Q, but according to the Google events, Android Dev Summit 2019 will be the right time. The Android Dev Summit 2019 will be scheduled for 23-24 Oct. So we can assume that either Android Dev Summit will witness the Android Q or it will release before the summit.
