Android 12/12L Beta and Developer Preview builds

If you need to download older beta and/or Developer Preview builds, you can found them listed below:

Beta and Developer Preview builds

It is worth mentioning that the beta/preview builds don’t have all the new software features you can associate with the final release of Android 12 and 12L. To be precise, Google gave developers the chance to test their apps against new Android platform APIs months before the new Android version became available for the general public. Hence, the builds mentioned below are aimed at the developer community only and are not intended to be used by end-users.
