A couple of days back Google announced the release of the Android Q Beta 6 which is also the final beta update before the official consumer release. Now smartphone companies have started fueling their devices with the latest Android Q build.
The Gesture Navigation gets more refined in the beta 6 and the update also includes the latest Android Q system images for Pixel and Android Emulator, the final API 29 SDK, and updated build tools for Android Studio.
“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. 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.”

It’s important to note that this is not the final build and only intended for developers to test their apps. So if you’re not a developer then you must not install this update. The Android Q beta 6 update is rolling out over-the-air, so if you’ve enrolled for the beta program then you’ll receive the update.
Google promises that this is the last beta update of Android Q before it goes official and as of late 2019 we should see on the shelves some of the smartphones already with the new OS.
