Android P (DP2): How to download the latest beta

Do you already crave the urge to try Android P before its release? Well, Google has already released the second beta for developers of premature software and you can download it now.

The first thing you should know is that the list of devices compatible with the betaof Android P (officially known as Developer Preview 2 or simply DP2) has increased to add phones from other manufacturers such as Nokia, Oppo, OnePlus and others. Here is the list of compatible devices:

  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Google Pixel 2
  • Google Pixel 2 XL
  • OnePlus 6
  • Essential PH-1
  • Sony Xperia XZ2
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S
  • Nokia 7 Plus
  • Oppo R15 Pro
  • I live X21

From this list, the OnePlus 6 still does not reach the market, but it will be a few days after the Chinese firm announces the cell phone on May 16. Google was ahead and confirmed that this cell still unannounced will be compatible with the beta.

If you already have one of these phones in your hands (in writing for example we have a couple of Pixel 2 XL and already installed the beta testing purposes and research) you can continue with the following steps to download the beta Android P .

How to download Android P

Before anything else, we have to tell you something: it is not recommended to download a beta on your main device. The beta and especially those aimed at developers (like this time) is unstable software made only for testing. The best thing is that, if you do not have developer knowledge, choose not to install the beta and wait for its final release; It is not advisable if you will do it in a main device, because a beta has errors and stability failures.

That said, proceed at your own risk to download Android P.

  1. Visit the Google page for developers
  2. Search for your compatible device and click Download the beta
  3. On the new page, enroll your device for the beta
  4. Your device will be registered to download Android P
  5. On your device, go to Settings> System> System Update
  6. Download Android P

Now your device will download Android P for a few minutes depending on your WiFi connection. Installing the operating system does not eliminate your data, although if you later want to return to a stable version due to problems or any other reason, you will have to eliminate all your information – and we will avoid saying “I told you so”.
