This service beta should end in a couple of months whenever it's officially launched, though it's currently unclear if the upcoming beta for the mobile-focused app will be launched at the same time. Of course, since we are nearing the official release of the service, Nvidia has just opened its first RTX servers to German and Californian residents, which should bring with it some exemplary graphics.

[Update: Rolling out] Razer Phone will get Android 9 Pie 'in the coming weeks'

The original Razer Phone received widespread praise when it was released in late 2017, mostly thanks to its then-unique 120Hz screen. However, Razer hasn't done a great job with long-term support, as the device is still running Android Oreo with a year-old security patch.

Android Q to get customizable styles and clocks, but they're not live yet

Android Q is nearing a stable release, but there are still tidbits of new information surfacing. Back in July, when Google accidentally pushed an internal test build to the public, XDA Developers found hints that the latest OS version could support advanced customization options for Pixels.

Android Q will deliver a whole pile of new features like a system-wide dark theme and revamped gesture navigation when it lands later this quarter. But just because Google has implemented those features in Android doesn't mean all your favorite apps will automatically work with them immediately and perfectly; developers need to build that support into their apps. To lend a hand, Google has just pushed out the source code for its I/O 2019 app to serve as an example.
