Android Q Beta 5 is now available on devices via OTA updates on Pixel phones registered in beta. It seems like a problem has arisen to a number of users. Google subsequently announced that the deployment of the OTA update of Android Q Beta 5 was temporarily halted.
Late in the evening, Google added an update to the top of the announcement message of Android Q Beta 5 on Reddit, spotted by Android font. The company did not share much information on why the update was stopped, apart from the fact that some users are having an installation problem with the update.
We are aware of a problem with Android Q Beta 5 related to the installation of updates. We temporarily suspended Beta 5 OTA updates from all Pixel devices during the problem review. We apologize for any inconvenience and will provide this message once the problem is resolved.
This seems very similar to the problems discovered shortly after last month's release of Android Q Beta 4, whose OTA process had been temporarily shut down. If you stick to this previous experience, it may take a few days for Google to release a new update.
We will keep an eye on any additional information about the time it takes to roll out Android Q Beta 5 OTA technology as Google makes it available. In the meantime, you can still access Android Q Beta 5 by manually downloading and installing OTA from your computer via ADB.
Have you had any problems with the installation of the OTA update on your device? Let us know in the comments.
