To report an issue, the tester needs to give as much information as they can in there report and it should at least include information like the Android Beta built that they are using, the device that is being used, the procedure to reproduce the problem and few more which are listed on the tracker. Google is expected to release the first Android Q developer preview this month, and showcase the Android Q Beta (developer preview 2) at Google I/O 2019 in May this year. I assumed that was in part due to Treble, making it easier for those devices to be....

The developers did not state which companies will be participating in the Android 10 beta, apart from the manufacturers who participated in the programme a year ago.

Illiyan: Yeah, in fact it was fully due to Treble.

As we mentioned, the Google Issue Tracker for Android Q Beta (OEM) has been opened, and as XDA Developers' Mishaal Rahman notes, the link to check for existing bug filters by date created after March 11, tipping the release will be today itself. We had, I believe, eight OEMs including Pixels, so seven OEMs other than Pixel.

"At Google I/O [2018], when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that incredible", Malchev said.

Yankees Buy Back YES Network in Near $3.5 Billion Deal
The YES network was valued at US$3.9 billion in 2014 when Fox bought an 80 per cent stake - leaving the Yankees with the rest. The Yankees will be the largest shareholder of the group - 30 percent - over YES Network , according to the reports.

Speaking to the hosts of the Android Developers Backstage podcast, the Project Treble team said the number of companies participating in the Android 10 beta will be bigger than the previous year. I can not share the exact numbers yet.

That should be exciting news to anyone looking to test the new version of Android, whether they're developers or not.

Historically, Google had limited availability of the early Android beta versions to the Google Pixel series, but a year ago was the first time that non-Pixel devices were compatible with the beta version. Some of the phones that we saw running the Android 9 Pie early previews including Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21 and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.

Illiyan didn't reveal the exact number of devices that will possibly be a part of the Android Q Beta Program, neither did he identify the phones.
