Getting this software on your phone requires few clicks to a whole set of steps. Installing Android 12 beta on the supported Google Pixel phones is the easiest.
How you get this software on your phone ranges from requiring just a few clicks to something more involved. For this beta download, it’s considerably easier to get the Android 12 beta on one of the supported Google Pixel phones.
So if you are about to install it on a Pixel device, start by visiting the Android 12 beta site and enroll your phone in the beta. You can see your phone listed upon clicking on the “view your eligible devices”. You will receive a notification on your phone when the software is ready to install. However, if you have not received any notification, you can also check manually. For that, open the settings menu on your phone and then head to System > System Update. Tap “Check for update” to see if you can download the new software.
If still nothing happens, the only option left is to wait. Though usually, we get a beta update in devices within minutes of enrolling however one time it took me some days to get the beta update. However, Google has ensured that it might take around 24 hours for the software to be ready to install on your phone so wait patiently.
