The Android
Q beta 5
was launched yesterday, inching us closer to a full

that it halted the OTA update for now due to installation-related
problems.

“We’re aware of an issue with Android Q beta 5 related to
installing updates. We’ve temporarily paused beta 5 OTA updates
to all Pixel devices as we investigate the issue. We apologize for
any inconvenience, and will provide this post once the issue is
resolved,” Google
noted
on the android_beta subreddit.

According to comments in the announcement thread,
several

users
have reported issues with installing the update. More
specifically, people are reporting frozen phones or prompts to
factory reset their devices during the installation process.

installation or dump into recovery mode.
