You can just click on the link provided below and enroll in the developer program for getting the Android Q developer preview. Just keep in mind it can be a bit rough ride. Currently, the preview build needs to be flashed manually and OTA update is not available yet. Even the roll-back to Android Pie needs to be done manually.
