    I couldn't resist and installed Android Q ๐Ÿ˜‰. So far I can report the following findings:

    - it takes about five minutes after reboot before it the email functiion is working
    - no color coding in the notification bar
    - see screenshot

    Other than that everything seems to work. I keep you updated.

    What is that "background activity messaging" !?
    Another Google killing the HUB is coming or what?

    Not sure if the email function working after 5 minutes is a Hub issue. Here on Oreo (KEY2), both Messages and BBM take about 2 minutes before any messages arrive, so it might just be an Android issue or something.

    heya. after one day on Android Q I can say that the HUB suite ist working quite well. I receive instantly new emails...

    the only things that worries me is the announcement of stopping background services for the HUB in the future. ๐Ÿ™„

    That what I was afraid with your screenshot!
    Maybe Google will finally totally kill the HUB!

    Maybe it's time for BB to think alternatives and not ship anymore their suit on the Playstore.

    Make them available to download from elsewhere or make them system app backed in the OS.

    well, the error message from the screenshot appears in many occasions also for some Google apps. so I reckon this will be an issue everybody will be facing and I am sure the is an alternative way

    Those aren't alternatives.... Google has rules that all OEMs must follow, or they don't get access to Google Play and Google Services.

    Google isn't out to kill the HUB, but they are trying to bring a more unified experience and to bring updates more quickly to more users. In the end I expect they would rather all OEMs drop their attempts to customize and individualize their versions of the OS at this point.

    But I doubt they will kill HUB+ background services...

    All the stuff I read about the Hub is it not for the future? Seems the people posting are not happy...

    there is a developer option to set the restriction already to 'on' in this current build. If this option is enabled, the email function seems to work without any issues. however deleting emails directly from the notification panel does not work anymore. this is seems to be the new restriction.

    @Liam and co: in this link is a description how to address this problem. maybe you can address this in future releases!

    Q was just released into beta testing. I'm sure a lot of current apps don't play well with it yet. That's why they are doing this.

    Probably just some app tweaking and OS tweaking to be done will fix a lot of these things. No doubt Google is locking a few more things down, but let all that shake out over the next few beta builds before getting too worried yet.
