Android Q Beta 5 rollout temporarily halted by Google
« on: July 12, 2019, 04:47:12 AM »

Google has resumed rolling out Android Q Beta 5. Pixel users can join the Beta program by clicking right here. Keep in mind that once you join the Beta program, you can stay with it until the final and stable version of Android Q is sent out. Or, you can leave and return to Android 9 Pie. However, to do so, you'll have to perform a factory reset. Keep in mind that Beta versions of Android are buggy and your favorites features or apps might not work correctly. Your best bet is to hold out for the official release which should take place some time this quarter. 

As we told you yesterday, Google started disseminating Android Q Beta 5 to all Pixel models. But a post from the official Google account on Reddit notes that OTA updates of the penultimate Beta version of the next Android build have been "temporarily paused." Google only notes that it is "aware of an issue" without going into further details. With one more beta update left until the stable and final version of Android Q is rolled out later this quarter, now is a good time to remind consumers that these Beta previews are mostly released so that developers can make sure that their apps are running correctly, and to provide Google with some feedback on the new build. They are notoriously unstable and if your Pixel is your daily driver, just understand that Android Q will be here soon enough.

If hearing that Google has pushed the pause button on the Android Q Beta 5 rollout sounds familiar, well, it should be. Last month, distribution of the fourth Beta preview was also temporarily halted when the update put some Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL units into a bootloop. Luckily, unlike past bootloops that affected some Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X owners (for which they were partially compensated for their problems via class-action suits), rebooting the phone from Recovery mode or doing a factory reset seemed to end the problem. And Google pushed out a bug fix in the monthly July update sent to Pixel handsets.
