We are just a step away from getting out hands on the stable version of Android Q. Google has launched the sixth and the last beta update i.e. Android Q Beta 6 today that will be active across all Google Pixels devices today and will be available across partnered devices in the coming weeks.
Google has managed to purge a plethora of bugs thanks to app developers taking part while there are almost 16 devices partnered with Google such as OnePlus 6T, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G among others that will start receiving the update soon.

Talking about Android Q Beta 6, apart from the usual bug fixes and system optimizations, the gesture navigation on Android Q is coming closer. Google has introduced its gesture navigation and upon the feedback, it has imposed a 200dp vertical app exclusion limit on apps to offer more consistent performance. As quoted by The Verge, 200dp vertical app exclusion limit is a technical term which translates into the fact that apps that don’t want to include a back gesture can do it although they are allowed to stop the effect from working on 200dp or density-independent pixels so that it doesn’t interfere with other functionalities.
Google has also enhanced the settings that allow adjusting the sensitivity of the back gesture. Although Android Q 10 is ready for its optimum launch later this month (there is no concrete date of launch as of now) and most of the features are on point but there’s still few more that Google will have to fix in the future.
If you are using Android Q 10 Beta on your device, you will get the notification to update to the latest Beta 6 available or you can always visit your manufacturer’s website that contains the details regarding the updates since every OEM runs on a different timeline than Google such as OnePlus is about to receive Android Q Beta 4.
