The fifth beta of Android Q is actually a candidate version. With this, developers should be able to adapt their applications to the new version of the operating system before the final version goes on sale in autumn. But apparently Beta 5 was defective, which is why Google withdrew the OTA update a few hours after the start of the distribution.
Google also says in a statement:
"We are aware of the problem with Android Q Beta 5 regarding the installation of updates. We have temporarily stopped the distribution of Beta 5 through the OTA update for all Pixel devices while we investigate the problem. We apologize for any inconvenience and inconvenience. we will put it at your disposal as soon as the problem is resolved. "
Google did not want to reveal exactly what kind of problems have occurred so far. However, as some users report on Reddit, for example, some of them experienced serious installation problems. For example, the smartphone was frozen during the update or the phone was reset to its factory settings during the update process.
It is not the first time that Google has had to withdraw a beta update for Android Q. Already with the fourth beta the company stopped the distribution, because Pixel 3 users had reported problems similar to those of now.
As soon as Google delivers the update again, it should be available for the following smartphones:
Asus ZenFone 5Z, Essential PH-1, Nokia 8.1, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, LG G8 ThinQ, OnePlus 6T, Oppo Reno, Realme 3 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ3, Tecno Spark 3Pro, Vivo X27, Vivo NEX S, Vivo NEX A, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, Xiaomi Mi 9.
