Google has released the first developer preview of Android 11. The update is available for everyone, but we are about to tell you why you should wait. First of all, it will be full of bugs, since it’s still in beta. It will make your phone act weird, and you won’t be able to rely on it. There are also many features for users and developers. Don’t you want to enjoy that at its most?
The developer preview is for developers
The only way to get the developer preview is to flash the factory image by using ADB and command-line tools. If you don’t know what that is, it might be good just not to get involved right now at all. If you install the preview, the phone will get to its factory settings. If you want to get rid of it, you’ll have to wipe it again. And if the installation process does not work well, you might even break your phone.
You will see a lot of bugs that will not allow you to have the experience you should get. It can prevent you from using some apps, or from even sending messages. Just wait until Google gets rid of the bugs, and prepares a final version.
