If you are lucky to have a supported smartphone and are willing to install a test build, here’s how to proceed:
- Make a backup of your smartphone data using: “Settings” -> “System” -> “Backup”;
- Sign up as a participant of the beta version of Android Q on this address;
- Wait for the updates over the wireless network or check the firmware manually “Settings” -> “System” -> “system Update” (the full update is 985 MB).
Keep in mind that this is a trial version of milking developers and the software itself is at the stage of beta testing. This means that Android Q at this stage can be unstable and is not recommended to use it on your primary phone, as there is a huge risk of losing data in case of a critical error. So use it at your own risk.
