How to get Android O on your Nexus and Pixel phones

Try out the test builds in advance to get a taste of Android O.

Google has released the public beta version of the Android O to compatible Pixel and Nexus phone owners. A public beta is a testing build that is released prior to a full scale consumer rollout of the final software.

Announcing the rollout at its annual developer conference Google I/O 2017, the company said," our first beta-quality candidate, available to test on your primary phone or tablet. We're inviting those who want to try the beta release of Android O to enrol now at android.com/beta."

The Android O will bring many new features to the Android ecosystem, including picture in picture mode, notification dots and smart text selection. There will be four beta builds in total before the final OTA version is released sometime in September onboard the rumoured Google Pixel 2 phone.

While this is the second developer preview for Android O, it is the first time a public beta has been made available for the upcoming OS. However, unlike last year, non-Google phones will not be getting to test the beta version as of now.
