Android 15 Release: Google Releases Android 15 Beta Versions: Here’s What You Need to Know

Google has released the initial versions of Android 15. The latest among these is Beta 2.1. You can manually download it on Pixel 6, Pixel 7, Pixel 8 series phones, and Pixel Fold and Pixel tablets. If you don’t have a Pixel device, the second beta is also available on devices from several OEMs, including Honor, Oppo, Xiaomi, and Nothing. Alternatively, you can use a 64-bit system image with the Android emulator in Android Studio.

Android 15 Release Timeline

Google has also revealed the Android 15 release timeline, which follows a pattern similar to Android 13 and Android 14. The release schedule includes the first and second developer previews, with the edition now in its beta phase.

When Will It Be Launched?

Beta 2 was launched on May 15. Now that the OS is out of Developer Preview and in beta, regular users who don’t want to manually flash the Developer Preview can safely experience Android 15. After a few beta releases, the software will reach platform stability in June-July, followed by the final release. Google hasn’t mentioned a specific month for the final Android 15 stable rollout. However, it is expected to launch with the Pixel 9 series in October. This expectation is based on Google’s launch of Android 14 alongside the Pixel 8 lineup.

Naturally, the Android 15 release date for Pixel phones will be earlier than for other brands. Samsung and others should also start announcing availability details of the new Android editions around the time of the final release. All the important milestones for Android are given below.
