    I picked up a Carrier Services update yesterday and noticed a possible change in Network settings:
    Pixel 3 (XL) Dual Sim-screenshot_20190820-0604431.jpg
    Which leads to this:
    Pixel 3 (XL) Dual Sim-screenshot_20190820-060504.jpg

    Could this mean that Dual SIM/Dual Standby (DSDS) has been fixed in Pixel 3's running Android Q?

    You could switch between SIM and eSIM since the Pixel 2. (Just no phone app/SMS app choices.)

    Right, but the Pixel 3a and 3a XL with Q beta 6 are able to have both SIM and eSIM simultaneously active with two signal strength meters and they can receive or make calls on either SIM without any special action on the user's part. This is known as Dual SIM, Dual Standby (DSDS).

    The 3 and 3 XL did the same under Q beta 2 but then it was disabled again in beta 3.

    What the 3 and 3 XL are doing currently is called Dual SIM, Single Standby (DSSS).
