Just thought I would leave this here as a general topic for everyone that enjoys their OG Pixel. Seems that Google is planning to support the 1st gen Pixel and Pixel XL when Android Q launches. There is a link to the OTA update and to enroll in the developer beta in the article. I do not recommend doing this now since this is a beta and your phone could lose key functionality since the Republic App most likely does not support Android Q at this time.
This is good advice. Republic does not support Developer Previews or Beta versions of the OS and the Republic App won’t be compatible until the final Android Q release.
