Share

While most everyday users get the stable version of Android every year around September, millions of beta testers contribute to the release by helping Google iron out bugs and issues in exchange for early access to new features. If you’re one of those enthusiasts, the Android 15 Public Beta 1 is already available, and we will show you a simple way to install it.

Things to consider

Before proceeding with the installation, it’s important to understand a few key points. Firstly, Android 15 beta 1 is currently only available for Pixel devices, including:

  • Pixel 6A
  • Pixel 6
  • Pixel 6 Pro
  • Pixel 7A
  • Pixel 7
  • Pixel 7 Pro
  • Pixel 8
  • Pixel 8 Pro
  • Pixel Fold
  • Pixel Tablet

Secondly, installing the firmware will erase all your data. Therefore, backing up all your important files before proceeding is crucial.

Lastly, we highly recommend against installing Android 15 if you’re not an avid tech enthusiast. The software is unstable and may contain bugs that could disrupt the functionality of your device. However, if you do plan to install Android 15, consider doing so on a secondary device. This way, you won’t risk losing access to any data or missing crucial services, such as banking apps.
