Android P Is Nearing Its Global Release

Google is almost ready to make Android P available for all devices. The latest version of the Android P Beta just started rolling out, and it’s the final preview before the public build arrives later this summer.

You’re looking at another release candidate; therefore, final system behaviors are present that’ll remain in place. Developers, meanwhile, are encouraged to continue testing their apps for compatibility.

Between now and its global roll-out, Android P shouldn’t change much.

More specifically, this is Android P Developer Preview 5 (Beta 4). It’s live on the Pixel 2 and Pixel starting immediately.

In the next few weeks, the same software update from the Android Beta Program will show up for select third-party devices. Google’s been working with a handful of partners to make sure Android P works well on more than just Pixel phones.

The experience should be stable for consumers. Still, you shouldn’t install Android P on your phone if bugs tend to irk you. It also runs the risk of damaging your device should something go wrong.

Anyone enrolled in the Android Beta Program with a Pixel phone should see a new software update within the next few hours (or days).
