Installing Android 11 Beta
The easiest method to install the beta update is through the Android 11 Beta program website. Simply visit the page, enroll your device and you will get an OTA that you can install to get onboard. This method works only for Pixel
Alternatively, you can follow the instructions here to manually flash the builds. The method involves downloading the OTA image (links above), rebooting the device to recovery mode, and flashing the zip file using ‘adb sideload ’ command. You may also use the new Android 11 Flash Tool.
That said, do keep in mind that these beta builds may not be fit for use as your daily driver. We would recommend you not to install it on your primary Android smartphone.
Going by last year’s track record, we could expect brands like Samsung, Sony, Asus, Huawei, Vivo, and Nokia to get onboard and announce the Android 11 beta update for their flagship smartphones in the coming weeks. We will be updating this list when this happens, so stay tuned for updates.
