Google announced Android 12 during its initial keynote at I/O 2021, and you can now check it out as part of the first public beta. The Android 12 beta is now available for Google Pixel phones, as well as OnePlus, Lenovo, Asus, Oppo, Realme, Sharp, Tecno, TCL, Vivo, Xiaomi, and ZTE smartphones. On Google’s Android beta site, you can add your Pixel phone, and on the Android Developers section, you can find detailed directions for other compatible phones.
The Beta update comes with a slew of new functions but the new visuals are the most promising. Along with new animations, widgets, and a redesigned lock screen, Android 12 update now supports theming, which allows you to alter the colors used in the operating system simply by changing your wallpaper. Not all of the dramatic visual improvements will be included in this first beta, but as we get closer to launch, they should become accessible. If you’d like to start using the beta right away, follow the following steps.
How to Install Android 12 Beta
The method for installing Android 12 beta on your smartphone can be as simple as a few clicks or as tricky as you want it to be. It’s much simpler to get this beta download on one of the Google Pixel phones that are supported.
To enlist your Pixel in the Android 12, go to the Android 12 beta site. When you click “View your eligible devices,” you will see your phone named. You will receive a notification on your phone when the program is ready to install after you enlist your device. If you want to search manually, go to System > System Update in your phone’s settings menu. To see if you can download the latest software, tap “Check for Update.”
You have no choice but to wait if nothing changes right away. I’ve had the beta update on my phone within minutes of enlisting in the past, but it can take hours. Wait for the Android 12 beta program to be ready to run on your smartphone, which may take up to 24 hours. Take the directions on each page from Google’s list of eligible smartphones for approved phones from other brands like OnePlus, Realme, Sharp, and others, as the installation process appears to vary based on the brand.
