    Downloaded Beta 5 and it seemed to kill all functionality that existed in the previous betas. The small pill doesn't activate the minute screen capability, no gesture navigation exists at all, unable to download new apps from the play store, the feedback capability is disabled and many other funky missteps. It looks like I got the Oreo Beta. Anyone have a similar experience?

    No I'm sorry to hear that you're having such issues with Beta 5. The only couple of issues I've had are with battery life issues and I'm testing out the always on Ambient display battery meter plus active notifications on always on Ambient display as well.

    Another small bug I've noticed with Beta 5 is the battery level at the bottom of the Always On Display often disappears and so does the charging information when it's plugged in. A quick reboot fixes it but it returns a few days later

    Oh yeah yep yep definitely true about that. Not just that but on my own ambient display, sometimes notifications are delayed by a few seconds up to a minute. Meaning my phone does ring for the notification or vibrate, but I won't actually visually see it on my own ambient display until a few seconds afterwards. It's really inconsistent in kind of annoying. I just deal with it like anything else in the beta program.n

    Well, very interesting! My 3XL on Q Beta 5 battery life is subpar. Unbeatable I can finish my work day after 8 hours at 70% to 75% battery now and finish it at 50% battery! And that's what the same usage.

    Randomly signal messenger has started showing quick replies and shortcuts to open chrome when someone sends me a link. The quick replies are only in the notification tray though. Not in the full app.

    Has anyone gotten the force dark mode feature to work in this beta? The toggle turns on in developer settings but it doesn't seem to do any thing. I have been reading that it is now functional.

    Yes, beta 5 Force dark mode in developer settings works on some Google applications and most their party applications.

    Okay thanks, I thought I recalled when it was working previously that it turned the Google app dark as well as some other things and that's not happening now so maybe it's not working for me I don't know

    And beta 4, forcing dark mode in developer settings was broken in force closed all the time! And beta 5 it's back thank God! The only thing I wish that would be force dark mode is Gmail haha everybody else for Google apps has a dark mode already.

    Yeah, Gmail used to turn dark the very first time I tried dark mode in Dev settings prior to beta 4. But doesn't turn now.

    yep yep correct. Gmail would look so much better in dark mode! Like I said, most other applications are already in dark mode except Gmail.

    Just went back to beta and all my apps are working now before early on most banking apps did not work.
