A week ago, spotted references to “system updates” happening by means of the Google Play Store. This feature — which explicitly conveys a “Google System Update” — seems, by all accounts, to be live as a major aspect of Android Q.
One Pixel 3 client running the Android Q Beta on Reddit today experienced a “Google System Update” notification that was portrayed as being “similar to one you get for an app update” as opposed to a full OS OTA. It continued to download a file and automatically restart the gadget.
Amid the boot procedure, the ‘G’ logo showed up against a white background with a loading indicator below it. This procedure did not convey a full OS update as the build number stayed unaltered.
Tragically, this client was not ready to capture some other screenshots of the procedure, incorporating whether there’s an in-application UI past that notification. After the restart finished, the client was not ready to discover any hint of what changed. This could be characteristic of Google as yet testing out the procedure on a little scale, yet ideally the Play Store picks up a screen that unveils what precisely was downloaded and updated in the background.
APK Insight a week ago spotted such an interface, that sounds quite similar to the old “System update available” screen.
Google presently can’t seem to detail some other kind of “System Update” beyond the monthly OTAs patches and new versions that clients are as of now acquainted with. Any declaration would probably come at I/O 2019 when the organization has a developer audience that could benefit from more frequent backend updates and features.
