A few days ago, Xiaomi started registration for Android Q Beta Program, now the company begins rolling out MIUI 10 based Android Q Beta update to its current flagship device Mi 9. The new update is currently being pushed to Chinese users as the Beta Program is limited to China. The procedure is very simple, If your device is on the latest version of development, you will get it through OTA, otherwise, you have to unlock Bootloader to perform it manually via fastboot method.  It will worth noting that Mi 9 is one of those models, who is eligible to get priority support for Android Q beta program from Google.

Furthermore, Zhang Guoquan, director of Xiaomi software team, has posted some screenshots showing the first look of Android Q Beta testing. When it comes to the home screen icons, these are almost identical to MIUI 10 based on Android Pie, therefore no major difference in UI. Interestingly, the company has included “Dark Mode”, which you can directly enable through display options. Overall, the Beta update is not advisable for normal users unless you are curious to test some exclusive features of Android Q.

Speaking to the Android Q features, it focuses on enhancing privacy features.  In Android Q, users can choose whether the application can access the location while it is running in the background. When an application uses user location data, a microphone, or a camera, the user will be able to see the icon in the notification bar, which tells the user which application is using the permission.
