How to install Android 12 developer preview right now



Google is soon expected to roll out a new version of its Android operating system, called Android 12. Today, the internet giant has rolled out the first developer preview of this OS.

For those unaware, the Developer Preview is a programme for app developers to give them an early look at the upcoming features so that they can make their apps compatible and build for the next version of Android.

Google will roll out the beta version of the same to public later this year, but if you cannot wait to get Android 12 operating system for your phone then this is what you need to do:

Readers must note that only a handful of phones support the developer preview of Android 12. These are Pixel 3 series, Pixel 3a series, Pixel 4 series, Pixel 4a series and Pixel 5.

Also, another thing to keep in mind before going ahead with this process is that since the operating system is in a developer preview stage right now it is likely to be unstable and may cause trouble for daily use therefore keep a backup of all your personal data.
