We thought Android Q Beta was going to arrive yesterday but unfortunately it did not. The main reason Google releases Beta versions of Android is for feedback and bug testing. This year they are going to make submitting this feedback easier with an included app.
Not coincidentally, the app will be called Android Beta Feedback and will be installed by default on the Android Q Beta. With the app you will be able to “Report Issue(s)”, make a “Feature Request” and give “Other Feedback”. Till Kottmann overnight reported on Twitter that he had spotted that Android Beta’s “how to provide feedback” page is accessible — also suggesting that the arrival of Android Q Beta is imminent.
Android Q Beta will include a new "Android Beta Feedback" app, as well as a specific QS Tile for reporting issues. It seems like they are open for major suggestions before Q will be finalized, or use them as suggestions for their next cycle. pic.twitter.com/xmeS5JpGfW

The Feedback app will only be available until the final release of Android Q and will allow users to “file bugs directly in Google’s public issue tracker, and easily attach bug report logs”. The app will also allow you to “suggest new Android features or major changes to current design along with “general compliments, complaints or other opinions”.
Along with the app the same avenues for feedback such as the Android Bug Tracker and the Android Beta subreddit will remain available for users to submit and read feedback from others.
Once again, with this new option already out in the open we are confident that the Android Q Beta release is set to take place in the next few days.
Got your phones ready for the next Android Beta?
