So, the wait is finally over as Google has officially released the Android 12 Beta 1 build for its eligible Pixel devices after pushing the first/second/third developer preview builds since February 2021. If you’re one of the lucky users of Google Pixel 5, Pixel 4a/4a 5G, Pixel 4/4 XL, Pixel 3a/3a XL, Pixel 3/3 XL then you’re on the right page as we’ve mentioned Google Pixel Android 12 Supported Device List and Downloads here.

It’s worth mentioning that Android 12 developer preview builds or the beta build might not include all the additional features and only come with the official stable release. To be very specific, Google basically allows developers to test their apps against the new Android OS version (APIs) before releasing the OS publicly.

That means the beta and DP builds are only meant for the developer community. In another way, we won’t gonna recommend you installing and using the Android 12 beta build or DP build on your primary device to use it as a daily driver due to potential bugs & stability issues. Now, without wasting any more time, let’s get into the device list below.
