Android P Developer Preview 2 Beta Download Available As Part Live Android Beta Program

Google has announced Android P Beta Program which has gone live at the opening keynote of its annual I/O Conference, which is likely to immediately resonate with users, is the immediate availability of the Beta Program.

Now, you can try out Android P as seen it in action either in screenshots, in videos, or on a friend’s device. It’s likely accurate as Google originally announced Android 9.0 P as a Developer Preview a number of months ago.

The platform was in its infancy and wasn’t ready to be used by the masses, Google originally offered P up as firmware that developers would need to manually flash onto their device or install it via a custom ROM put together by someone with the requisite knowledge.

However, with today’s announcement, those limitations have now been lifted meaning that Android P DP2 is available to download and try out for all early adopters who really want to see what exactly the next major version of the world’s popular mobile operating system has in store for them.

Great news here is all about this immediate release is that anyone with an interest in the Android operating system can head on over right to Google’s Android Beta landing page to register and express their interest in the update installation and to also register their compatible device to make sure that it’s capable of installing the update.

For those developers who have already flashed the original developer preview of Android P to their devices may also find themselves receiving an over-the-air update which will directly give them this latest version. If already so, will find themselves with an installation that includes all of the original new features and functionality present in the official Developer Preview, as well as new functions and additional gestures which have been added since.

Google has today also revealed all of the big new features in the latest version of Android P. As an example, this latest offering includes the iPhone X-like navigation features and gesture controls, among other things. As more people install the preview and get using it, it’s highly likely that additional inclusions will seep into the public domain.

If you are interested in this Android P beta, head on over to the beta landing page right now here and start the process. Compatible phones include the Google Pixel / Pixel XL, Pixel 2 / Pixel XL 2, Essential Phone, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21UD, Vivo X21, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S and OnePlus 6 (on launch day).

This is important to note that Developer Preview 2 (beta) for Android 9.0 P is rolling out as we speak as part of the Beta Program, but if you’ve manually flashed the older DP1 on your device, you will get this new beta as an OTA, ad ill have to do so manually.
