Google is pushing out the new Android P Developer Preview 3 just after one month to the release of Android P Developer Preview 2. Pixel users can manually load the Android P Developer Preview 3 on their device. However, an Over-The-Air update will come soon if you’ve enrolled in Android Beta Program.
Google has also added step by step methods for updating the Android P Developer Preview 3 on the Android Developer’s website. Both the OTA Files and Factory Images are there to help. Right now, the update is limited up to Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL but Google has also released Android P Developer Preview 2 for other smartphones like Essential Phone, Nokia 7 Plus, Oneplus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21UD, Vivo X21and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.
Google still has one last Android P Developer Preview 4 on agenda before the actual release. We hope to see the rest features which was showcased on Google I/O on that update.
