Taiwanese smartphone maker Asus has just rolled out the first public beta version of its Android 10-based ZenUI 6. The beta is currently rolling out for Asus Zenfone 5Z devices in the market. Similar to other beta testing programs, 5Z users need to sign up for the program. This version comes months after Asus started calling out for Android 10 beta testers. Before this, the beta testing was closed and limited to a handful of users. Closed Beta testers had to deal with a barebones update that was riddled with bugs. Now, the company seems to have fixed a majority of bugs.
