Here is where you download Android 11 Developer Preview 4 for your Pixel phone. Google has announced an unscheduled, extra Developer Preview release today for Android R. Due to the whole situation which has erupted across the globe over the past few months, Google is restructuring its release timeline for Android R. Where originally we were expecting the first Beta release to be occurring this month, Google has instead launched an additional preview build: Android 11 Developer Preview 4. You can try out the latest release on your Pixel phone through the links ahead.
Last month, when we published our Android 11 Developer Preview 3 article, we notified our readers that DP3 would be the last preview and the next build will be the first Beta. Unfortunately, the schedule has been revised / delayed. With the platform stability phase being pushed back a month to July, Google has also launched an additional Developer Preview 4. Compatibility remains the same as before hence you can install Android 11 Developer Preview 4 on Pixel 2 / 2 XL, Pixel 3 / 3 XL, Pixel 3a / 3a XL and Pixel 4 / 4 XL phones.
Android 11 Developer Preview 4: Details and Changes
Unlike last iterations where each release brought with itself a number of changes, Developer Preview 4 focuses on bug-fixes, reliability and stability. Google hasn’t officially listed any fundamental changes with this release. This doesn’t, in any case, means DP4 is same as DP3, there will be functional improvements integrated hence the different version number.
As this is a Developer Preview, users would need to manually install it. For users running an older Android R build, this update would also be served as OTA(Over-the-air) update package directly on your phone.
