    And it's probably worth pointing out, in case people haven't read it elsewhere, that you have to have selected the Dark Theme in Android Pie before updating to the Q beta iff you really want the dark system theme in Q. There're currently no user-facing controls to change theming, except for a few minor tweeks at the bottom of Developer Options.

    Installed on my P2XL. When it rebooted it failed and restarted to Android factory reset menu. I got retry and it then booted into Android beta. Whew! I thought it had totally corrupted.

    Google updates now work when running a VPN! In Pie, I had to disable my VPN for downloading app updates, this is fixed in Q.

    I literally have no dark mode not even in developer options. And I never had a dark theme in my system updates either. Wonder what happened to it?

    I just read an earlier comment. I had dark mode enabled in Our but it never properly worked for me. I had to enable it in developer mode. So now I have white theming in Q and no option to change in dev options. Oh well.

    Can't send texts via voice on Android auto. Also, assistant doesn't verbally respond to commands.

    OK. I went to the office. My daughter is up and drawing on the PC. So I booted her off for 10 minutes and ran ADB. (Sorted out my Gsam extra stats while I was out there as well). And now I have dark theme. Android Q public beta has launched-screenshot_20190314-010031.jpeg

    Google assistant wasn't activating with a squeeze or by holding home button. So I installed the assistant app and then it worked. But I got a message saying that the background action launching assistant with the home button would be disabled in future Q builds. Weird huh?

    Looks like there's a specific Feedback app added to the app drawer, so I guess the Tips & Support failure is intentional until the full version of Q? Seems odd Google didn't just cut that cell from the Settings page for the time being.
