The Android 12 public beta is currently available for Google’s Pixel phones (Pixel 3 and up) and will also come to devices from OnePlus, Lenovo, Asus, Oppo, Realme, Sharp, Tecno, TCL, Vivo, Xiaomi, and ZTE. So if you have any of these phones in your hand and want to test Android 12, now is your chance.
Android 12 brings a lot of new features. But the most exciting are the new visuals. Along with new animations, widgets, and a modified lock screen. Android 12 also offers theming, with the ability to change the colors used across the OS just by changing your wallpaper. Not all of the dramatic visual changes will be available in this first beta, but they should roll out over time as we get closer to release.
How To Install The Android 12 public BETA
If you have a Pixel phone. Then you can begin by visiting the Android 12 beta site to enroll your phone in the beta. You should be able to find your phone listed when you click “View your eligible devices.” After you enroll your device, you might be nudged via a notification on your phone that the software is ready to install.
You can also check this manually. Just open the settings menu on your phone, then head to System > System Update. Tap “Check for update” to see if you can download the new software. And if this still doesn’t work you can try more tactical approaches by visiting the XDA website for in-depth help.
Warning: The updates are intended for developers only, so don’t install them on your daily use phone. These builds are early releases and contain bugs and other system instabilities. Even if the flashing process doesn’t necessarily wipe your device. It is highly recommended that you back up your data before proceeding. Users are advised to exercise caution.
