It’ll still be a similar process though, perhaps just with menu names changed.

How To Android 11 Download Beta Easily

  1. Back up all your personal data.
  2. Open your phone’s Settings menu.
  3. Select the System, then Advanced, then System Update.

Android 11 Download Using Android Beta Program

Android 11 Download In Your Android Phone | Easy Guide

The easiest and simplest way to get the Android 11 beta is to enroll in the Android Beta Program.

Simply visit the Android Beta portal and opt-in to the beta, which will then prompt Google to send your phone or tablet an over-the-air update. Depending on the timing, your phone will receive the latest beta and then an OTA for the final version, or it will just receive the final version of Android Q.

  1. Head to the Android Beta program portal on your Pixel phone.
  2. Sign in to the Google account associated with that phone.
  3. Scroll down to Your eligible devices.
  4. Find the device you want to enroll in the Beta program and tap Opt-in.
  5. Follow the prompts on your phone to accept the over-the-air download.

What if I want to leave the beta program?

You can easily opt-out of the beta program by going to the same Android Beta portal as you did to enroll, scroll down to your device, and tap Opt-out.

Here’s what Google says will happen when you do that:

“You may opt-out of the programme at any time to return to the stable, public version of Android. If you opt-out when your device is running a beta version of Android, all user data on the device will be wiped. If you choose to stay enrolled until the end of the programme, you will graduate from the programme and receive an update to the stable public release of Android 11. Your device will not be wiped.”

While we don’t recommend doing it the hard way, below you’ll find instructions for downloading the Android Q beta using the official factory images. Beware of dragons!

Android 11 Download Beta Using The Android Flash Tool

New this year is the ability to use the Android Flash Tool, a web-based version of the ADB developer tool, to install the Android 11 beta onto your phone.

  1. Head to the Android Flash Tool site.
  2. Allow the site to access ADB in your browser.
  3. Enable Developer Mode on your phone.
  4. Enable USB Debugging in the Developer Settings.
  5. Enable OEM Unlocking on your device.
  6. Plug-in your phone to a USB port on your computer.
  7. Select the device from the pop-up and follow the instructions to install the beta.

Android 11 Download Beta By Using OTA Image

Download the proper files

You have to download the proper file for your device before you get started. We recommend using OTA images over factory images, coz the process is easier to do and allows you to keep old files if that’s something you’re interested in.

Click here to grab the OTA image for your specific Pixel device. It’s also possible to use the full factory images (here), though that requires extra hoops like unlocking your bootloader and more. So if you want to keep things simple, we recommend sideloading the OTA, and we designed our directions below for this install type.

Prepare your phone

Once you’ve installed the file, you need to reboot your phone into Recovery Mode in order to apply the OTA.
  1. First, shut off your phone.
  2. Next, hold down Power and Volume Down buttons at the same time.
  3. The bootloader menu will now show up. Use volume buttons to scroll down to Recovery Mode.
  4. Select Recovery Mode by clicking the power button.
  5. You’ll be presented with an Android robot with an exclamation mark on it. Now you’ll press the power button and volume up button for about a second.
  6. Release the volume up button will send you fully into recovery.
  7. Next, us the volume buttons and scroll down to “Apply update from ADB”. Push the power button to select the option.
  8. Lastly, you’ll see a blank screen telling you how to sideload an OTA.

Prepare your PC

Now that your phone is ready, it’s time to make the magic happen.

  1. Connect your handset to your PC via USB cable. Remember, you’re PC needs to have ADB tools installed.
  2. On Windows, enter Command Prompt. On Linux or Mac, you’ll want to use Terminal. For Windows users: make sure you navigate to wherever you’re storing the folder.
  3. Next, you must enter adb sideload for Windows, or ./adb sideload for Mac/Linux.
  4. Now you’ll want to enter the name of the .zip folder from before. Hit enter.
  5. Once completed, your phone will return to Recovery Mode and you can remove the USB cable.
  6. Go to Reboot Now with the volume keys and press the power button.

That’s it. If everything went okay, you’ll now reboot into the Android 11 Beta.
