Q beta 5 was launched yesterday, inching us closer to a full
stable release later this year. Unfortunately, Google has confirmed
that it halted the OTA update for now due to installation-related
“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
noted on the android_beta subreddit.
According to comments in the announcement thread,
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.
It’s not the first time Google has paused an Android Q beta
though, as the company did the same thing for the previous beta.
Android Q beta 4 was paused after
Pixel 3 owners reported that their phones would freeze during
installation or dump into recovery mode.
