On the sidelines of Google I/O annual developer conference, Google announced that it has ended the Android “Nougat” Beta and will soon launch the Android O Beta.
To date, Google had been providing Beta versions of Android Nougat (versions 7.x) alongside early, Developer Preview versions of Android O, the next major Android version.
“Thank you for your interest in the Android Beta Programme. The beta for Android Nougat has concluded, and all devices that were opted in have been updated to the current public version,” Google said in an update to the Android beta website.
“If you are still running a beta version of Nougat you may download the latest full OTA image for your device and side-load it. This will not wipe your device. We’ll update this site when the Android O Beta Programme begins,” the update added.
Google is expected to unveil its plans for Android O features and functionality at the Google I/O event.
Furthermore, Beta versions of Android 0 should be far more accessible—and easier to install—than the Developer Preview releases.
