The Android Beta Programme gives you an opportunity to try out pre-release versions of Android and provide feedback. Devices that you opt-in to the programme will receive an over-the-air (OTA) update to the latest beta version of Android. The updates that you’ll receive as a part of this programme are pre-release versions, and may contain errors and defects that can affect normal functioning of your device (see known issues).
