Google initially unveiled its future Android O OS to developers last March and released a developer preview build since. After a couple of months and with its Android Nougat Beta ended more than a week ago, Google is once again opening a new beta program and now it’s for Android O.

When Android O was introduced as a Developer preview, Google adviced that only developers should be jumping into testing the new OS as it may contain bug back then. Now that Google has finally refined and optimized the OS for almost all supported devices. Google is now ready to accept beta testers with devices that the beta software supports.

To join the Android O Beta Program, users must enroll their device from here. For supported devices, Google lists the following Google devices as one of the test beds for the upcoming Android O:  Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Huawei Nexus 6P, LG Nexus 5X and the Asus Nexus Player.

When enrolled, users are then asked to submit usage and bug reports to Google server as Android is fine tuned for the mainstream market. Google will be releasing a number of Beta builds now and again to beta testers with its first beta build can be downloaded starting today. The next major beta release should be expected before the end of June while the final beta release is expected some time in August before the OS finally goes mainstream.
