Take a Sneak Preview of Android Oreo’s Successor
Android P Beta is the developer preview of the Android OS version after Android Oreo. Developers and early adopters can have this early version of Android P on their Google Pixel devices and some other supported Android devices.
This beta release comprises all kinds of new features and visual changes that represent what the commercial release of Android P would actually look like. The changes include gesture navigation, new animations, fresh controls, etc. The Android P Beta program or Developer Preview is a program that provides developers everything they require to make their apps compatible with the next Android version. This is Preview 2 that has been designed for usage in compatibility testing. The program is free and to get started, you would only have to download the Preview tools.
Android Beta Program
To have Android P Beta on your Pixel device, your device should have been enrolled in the Android Beta program. Post-enrollment, your device would get OTA (over-the-air) updates to recent Android P builds. The enrolling process is fairly straightforward and a quick affair too. Though not necessary, backing up your information before enrolling is recommended. You may also manually download the software and flash your device to the recent build. This approach could come in handy when you require additional control over testing operations, such as regression testing or automated testing. Even if you have not flashed devices before, instructions online would guide you throughout the process.
