Google will be launching Android Q later this summer, and kicked off its beta program for the new OS on Google Pixel phones in March. To avoid that confusion, Google is introducing a "peek" feature in Android Q beta 5.
This also happened with the fourth beta last month, the day after it started rolling out Google had to halt it because many users were having bootloop issues getting the update installed, unfortunately.
Users will eventually have the option to use gesture navigation with third-party launchers on Android Q, but with Beta 6 and at launch, you'll be stuck with the three-button system. As Google announced at I/O this year, it will do away with the awkward two-button gesture nav that debuted in Pie. While on iOS, all that Apple has had to worry about is going back, home or bringing up the card view, on Android, Google has to work on four aspects - home, back, card view and invoking the Google Assistant. This will, however, require some changes to the way Android now works. Alongside with a new slide from the corners at the bottom of the screen to launch Google Assistant.
The date for Android Q, whose sweet name still has to be revealed, is closing in fast. This useful function has always been endorsed by third-party launchers like Nova Launcher, Lawnchair, and many others. With the next beta release, he says users will be switched to a 3-button navigation when they're using a custom launcher by default. Google has temporarily paused the OTA rollout. the updates are no longer available due to installation issues. This is more of an indication that Google is close to nailing it down rather than an official release, but it's what we have at the moment to keep you hyped.
Aside from some faster running speeds, the update will offer a general overhaul of some of the much-loved and equally as hated features across Android devices.
