Android 15 has graduated from Developer Preview, with the beta program now available for Google Pixel devices. Here’s what you need to know about the first Android 15 beta and how to install it.

What’s the latest Android 15 beta?

Google first released Android 15 in February. Two developer previews have been released leading up to April 11, when Google released Android 15 Beta 1.

Beta 1 is the first of several beta releases scheduled for 2024, with Google expected to launch several more updates through the next few months.

Notably, Android 15’s Developer Preview builds were both fairly unstable for users, with sideloading issues being prevalent. While the Android 15 Beta is likely to fix these problems, users should still take precautions. Avoid installing beta builds on a device you can’t go without, and if you do sideload the update, toggle “OEM Unlocking” in developer options before starting the install process.

What Pixel devices can install the Android 15 Beta?

As of Android 15, all Snapdragon-powered Pixel smartphones will no longer be supported. Only Pixels powered by Tensor are available with Android 15, meaning all Pixel devices released since October 2021.

That includes the following:

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

For Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, this is the last major Android update available.

When it debuts, the upcoming Pixel 8a will likely also be added to the Android 15 Beta quickly.
