Android 11 it’s here. It will still be a few months before we start receiving it on our smartphones, but the beta is now available. Of course, for the moment, not everyone will be able to try it.
But if you want to know if your mobile allows you to do it and the steps you have to follow to be a tester of the new version, we invite you to continue reading.
Android 11, the beta version is here
Can I download the Android 11 beta on my mobile?
Although the beta of the latest version of Android is already available, not all mobiles can access it. As usual, Google gives priority to this type of thing to the smartphones of the Pixel range, which are of its own creation. Specifically, the phones with which you can test the new features of the operating system are the following:
- Pixel 2
- Pixel 2XL
- Pixel 3
- Pixel 3XL
- Pixel 3a
- Pixel 3a XL
- Pixel 4
- Pixel 4 XL
If you have another mobile model, you will have no choice but to wait for the update to arrive on your smartphone. Which probably takes a few months to occur. And if you have a very old model, you may have to change your mobile to use Android 11.
How to join the beta program
Although there are some «alternative» ways to try Android 11, probably the easiest is to join the beta program. It is a fairly simple process, similar to any other beta that you have tried before. The steps to follow are those:
- Enter in the beta program portal from your Android mobile
- Sign up with the Google account you have associated with that phone
- Search the list for the device where you want to install the beta
- Follow the steps your phone tells you to install the update.
Once you have followed all these steps, you will have the provisional version of Android 11 installed on your device. Remember this is a trial version, which comes out simply so that users can detect possible failures. Therefore, it is possible that in your first days of use you will encounter small problems that make it not work as well as it should.
What if I want to exit the beta program?
The steps to follow to leave the beta program are practically the same as to enter it. Only when selecting the device on which you have it installed, you will be given the option to leave it. In this way, if you are not convinced by the new features or if the failures they are very annoying, stop using this program will be quite simple for you.
