Google is now letting users download Android 11 Beta 3 which is the last Beta release before official roll-out begins. Pixel owners can immediately grab the latest Android 11 Beta 3 files from this guide and use them to update their phones manually. Rather than any new feature additions, this Beta focuses on balancing Android R version for final release by fixing bugs and addressing issues. The APIs were finalized in the last release but this Beta 3 update will act as the final testing base for app developers.
Android Beta program from Google allows enthusiasts and developers to enjoy upcoming Android versions before hand. Further, through the program, Google is able to test their releases on a large number of devices all around the globe. As Android R Beta comes to an end with this final Android 11 Beta 3, download it now before the official Google starts with stable Android 11 roll-out.
Android 11 Beta 3 – Final Beta Update
Previous Beta 2 finalized Android 11’s APIs so this release just builds on top of it by introducing new fixes. Further, Android 11 Beta 3 will serve as a final testing point for apps before Android 11 officially begins rolling out to all.
