Google releases Android Q Beta 2
« on: April 05, 2019, 06:57:28 AM »


Google announced today that it has released the Android Q Beta 2 update for all three generations of Pixel phones. The first Beta update for the next build of Android was disseminated last month. Google says that it has received thousands of bug reports (a good reason to hold off installing Android Q until the stable version is ready). The company adds that it is happy to have a "passionate community" helping it to move toward releasing the final version of the new OS build later this year.

A new feature found in Android Q Beta 2 is called Bubbles, which is built over the Android notification system. Floating on top of an app, Bubbles follow you all over the OS, allowing you to carry the functionality of an app with you no matter where you end on Android Q. Google says that Bubbles is perfect for messaging apps because you can carry a conversation with you even as you move from app to app. Google has given Bubbles many of the capabilities found with similar features on various apps, but wanted to implement its own version to "make interactions consistent, safeguard user privacy, reduce development time, and drive innovation."
