Most of the hype regarding the Developer Preview 2 for the Android O is beginning to calm down, especially when compared to its first release in the mid of May. At that moment, fans had rushed in to try out the new OS.
Some of the features included better boot times, and the picture-in-picture feature for YouTube Red to name a couple of them. If you wish to join the beta program for the preview build then you will have to follow a few steps. The official pages tells us the following:
‘’The Android Beta Program gives you an opportunity to try out pre-release versions of Android and provide feedback. Devices that you opt in to the program will receive an over-the-air (OTA) update to the latest beta version of Android O. The updates that you’ll receive as a part of this program are pre-release versions, and may contain errors and defects that can affect normal functioning of your device (see known issues). The feedback you provide on the Beta will help us identify and fix issues, and make the platform even better.
If you were previously enrolled in the Android N Beta Program, you must enroll again to receive Android O. You may remain in the Android Beta Program beyond the initial O release to preview future Android O maintenance releases (MRs). If you choose to do so, you will automatically get an OTA update to pre-release versions of the MRs as they become available. At the end of the program, you will begin to receive regular public updates.
You may opt-out of the program at any time to return to the stable, public version of Android. Note: If you opt out when your device is running a beta version of Android, all user data on the device will be wiped.’ You will also want to make sure you have an eligible device, these being the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player and the Pixel, Pixel C and Pixel XL. The page for the trying out the beta is the following: https://www.google.com/android/beta.
