This comes weeks after it was revealed that Google is thinking about letting users test the next version of Android before releasing the update to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). This includes launching the beta program on a large number of devices.

Google is likely to use Generic System Image (GSI) images of the next version of Android to ensure that a wide number of device makers can roll out a beta version of Android Q for their devices.
