New operating system installation is very easy, but if you face any problem, you can go back to the more stable version of Android 9 Pie. In that case, you will have to reformat your phone.
Before you follow the steps to update your smartphone on Android Q beta. You should take a backup of your Device.
Google lets Pixel users register in the beta, simply by signing up with a Google account, then choosing the compatible device from the given list. Just like other OTA updates, you will be given an over-the-air update.
Once you click “Enroll,” you will get an update notification on the enrolled phone that a system update is ready. You may have to check for a system update so that it can be able to retrieve the beta software. However, it normally does not take long for it to become ready for download.
Alternatively, you can install the updates by flashing the Android Q beta to your Pixel phone. Google has provided a list of “os image” for the supported phones to download. But if you are not a developer, you should never try this way. Phones that are updated in this way, will not get OTA (Over-the-Air) updates to next upcoming beta versions, so if you want the latest Android Q features without any problem, just sign up for the beta preferably.
