    So the next release will be the first Q Open Beta?

    I hope that's the same for 6/T too.

    Does anyone here hate the new Android Q gestures?

    Some other bugs I've found:
    - Messenger app looks horrible when forced dark is enabled.
    - Game mode does not put notifications on silent
    - If you are using GCam, the latest build won't work.
    - If you enable the horizontal line on the nav bar, some apps will show a white border around it. Also, the horizontal line pushes the keyboard upwards which makes it harder to type.
    - Using the horizontal line to swipe up and go to the home screen creates a weird animation.
    - Screen is too sensitive at times
    - Notifications on messenger apps are delayed even when battery optimization and sleep standby optimization are both off.
    - When forced dark is being disabled, changing the preset theme to dark does not work. I had to set the tone to Dark to enable the dark theme
    - When the notification panel is pulled, a black gradient tone appears in the middle of the screen.

    After using this build for 2 days, I've finally decided to downgrade to the stable build mainly because of the new gesture navigations and the experience being not as smooth as you'd expect it to be on the OP7 Pro.
