How to Install Android 12 Beta on supported devices

Finally, it’s the exciting time of the year again! Android 12, i.e., the next main release of Android, is now available as a public beta version. It won’t offer you the complete Android 12 experience as it’s still undergoing progress. However, for some lucky owners of the Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 3a XL, or Pixel 5, you’ll be among the first users to check what new OS update has to deliver.

What's new in Android 12 Beta

The Android 12 beta offers an abundance of features and a huge new UI overhaul. The first significant transformation is the new “Material You” UI design that Google says is a “radical new way to think about design.” If you install Android 12 on your device, you will see new visual changes to the lock screen, quick settings panel, the settings menu, and much more.

Moreover, the lock screen now displays a giant clock when there are no new notifications. The quick settings panel is remodeled and now has enormous tiles and a few new options like Extra Dim, making the screen even darker. Google has also introduced a new private dashboard to allow necessary permissions in a more manageable way. Apart from this, you can now long press the power button to open Google Assistant.

Steps to install Android 12 Beta On your Device

  • If you own a supported device, it’s easy for you to visit the Android 12 Beta website and enroll your handset there in the beta version program.
  • Once you’ve enrolled in the device, a notification will pop up on your screen, prompting you to install the software. Else, to do it manually, ensure to go to System in your phone settings first.
  • Click on System Update
  • Tap check your update. If the download hasn’t started instantly, you have no other option but to wait.
  • If you own some other supported smartphone, try to follow the exact instructions on every page from Google’s list of eligible phones.

Thus, you can enjoy the new Android 12 Beta versions, once the download has successfully finished on your supported device.
