Google starts seeding Android Q Beta 5, quickly pulls it

11 July 2019
It's unclear when the rollout will resume.

Sort by:

Android is probably the most incompetently written operating system since MacOS 9. Every year the same story. Every fliuching year they brick devices and every year it take manufacturers a full year to get it "stable" on a lot of their devices.

Well well ... it's not like they already briked quite a handfull Pixel devices with Beta 4 already (no joke, many people had to sent their phone back to Google) - and now they pull it again - likely due a similar issue?

What the f*** is wrong with Google lately ...

Their Software Quality Assurance is lacking massively accross the table nowadays, accross Android and Chrome OS. Reminds me a bit of Amazon and Microsoft now.

And not in a good way.

Pixel users are expensive beta testers

Installed ok on my pixel 2xl.

Is just challenging Apple on most advanced features.
Like pulling an update in less than an hour
