Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P: Enroll in Google’s Android Beta Program and Receive Oreo OS
Android Oreo was recently unveiled by Google during the lunar eclipse. However, we still need to wait a couple of weeks until Google decides to start rolling it out. The reason why Android Oreo is not rolling out immediately is because it’s still experimental software that needs a couple more bug fixes. On the bright side though, eager Android fans can get access to the new operating system ahead of everyone else by enrolling in Google’s Android Beta Program.
Android Beta Program
The program is open for everyone, but there are a few requirements though. The first requirement is to own one of these following Android powered devices: Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus Player, Pixel C, Pixel and Pixel XL. The thing that all of these devices have in common is that they are all directly being managed by Google.
Now that we’ve went over the devices that are allowed access in the Android Beta Program, let’s talk about how easy it is to enroll. First off, access the program’s official website and log in with your Google account. Also, make sure that this account is logged in on the designed device as well. The next step is to scroll down on the page and select the “Enroll Device” option which can be found below the “Your Eligible Devices” section. The only thing left to do now is to accept the terms and condition.
As previously mentioned, Android Oreo is still an experimental software. This means that it has its fair share of bugs. Therefore, performing a full data backup is the best advice we can give to interested Android users. Last but not least, we need to let readers know that they can always opt out of Google’s Android Beta Program by selecting the “Unroll Device” option.
