Google today released the fourth and final developer preview of Android O before it gets an initial release sometime next month to the public. The beta is available in both the form of factory images and an OTA update.
Considering this is the final build of Android O before its initial release, it’s safe to say this build of Android 8.0 is pretty stable and should be suitable for anyone anxious to use the next version of Android on their Pixel or Nexus device in advance. Of course, we still don’t know Android 8’s official name, but we should learn this in the near future.
All final APIs and patches to the system have been added in Android O Developer Preview 4, so this means developers should probably jump on getting their apps optimized for the next generation. We expect the OS to roll out at the end of next month and hit the following devices right away:
- Pixel XL
- Nexus 6P
- Nexus 5X
- Pixel C
- Nexus Player
