You can now install the Android 11 beta version on your phone, as long as it’s a Pixel 2, 3, or 4. For other phones like the OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo Vivo, Sharp, Realme and Transsion, you’ll have to wait a few more weeks. You can easily enroll to receive the update with a few clicks, and in just a few minutes, you’ll be ready to install Android 11 on your phone. Just go to this page with your Google account information. Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive all future updates to the OS (including the final release). But remember, this is still a beta version, which means it might cause unexpected issues with your phone, ranging from app malfunctions or a downturn in battery performance to worse issues like data loss. So, make sure that your device data is backed up on the cloud, and proceed with caution.
