If you’re running a supported Android device, you can now install the Android 12 public beta. Here’s how to get started.
What you’ll need
If you want to install the Android 12 public beta on a supported device, you’ll need a few things first. First, you’ll need to be sure that your device is actually supported. The list of supported devices is available here. If your device is not on that list, you will not be able to install the beta.
Once you’ve confirmed that your device is supported, you’ll need to download the Android 12 public beta images. These can be found here. Be sure to download the correct image for your device.
Finally, you’ll need to have a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer handy. You’ll need this computer to flash the Android 12 beta images onto your device.
Now that you have everything you need, let’s get started.
Back up your device
Before you install the Android 12 Public Beta on your supported device, it’s important to back up your data. This will help you restore your data if something goes wrong during the beta process.
There are a few different ways to back up your Android device. You can use Google’s built-in backup feature, which backs up your data to your Google account. You can also use a third-party backup app, like Titanium Backup.
Once you’ve backed up your data, you’re ready to install the Android 12 Public Beta.
Install the Android 12 Public Beta
There are two ways to install the Android 12 public beta. The first is to enroll your device in the Android Beta Program, which will give you access to the beta automatically as it becomes available. The second is to manually download and install the beta yourself.
If you want to enroll your device in the Android Beta Program, simply head to the program website and sign in with your Google account. Once you’re signed in, you’ll be able to see a list of eligible devices. Select the device you want to enroll, and then tap “Opt in.” You’ll be prompted to agree to the terms and conditions, after which you’ll be enrolled in the program.
Once you’re enrolled, you’ll automatically receive beta updates as they become available. You can also check for updates manually by going to Settings > System > Advanced > System Updates.
If you prefer to install the beta manually, you can do so by downloading the appropriate beta image for your device from the Android Developers website. Once you’ve downloaded the image, you’ll need to unzip it and then flash it to your device using a tool like Fastboot.
Installing the Android 12 public beta is a great way to get a head start on the new features and changes coming in the final release. Just be sure to back up your data first, as beta software can be unstable and may cause data loss.
Get started with the Android 12 Public Beta
If you’re excited to get started with the Android 12 Public Beta, there are a few things you need to do first.
Before you install the Android 12 Public Beta on your device, you’ll need to make sure your device is compatible. The Android 12 Public Beta is only available for certain devices, so check the list of supported devices before proceeding.
Once you’ve confirmed that your device is compatible, you’ll need to back up your data. This is important because the beta version of Android 12 is still in development, and there may be bugs that could cause data loss. So it’s always a good idea to have a recent backup before installing any beta software.
Finally, you’re ready to install the Android 12 Public Beta. Just head to the Android Beta website and sign up for the beta program. Once you’re registered, you’ll be able to download the beta software and install it on your compatible device.
