Google has released the fifth and final public beta of Android 12 for supported Pixel devices. This is a release candidate and is also the first beta that can be installed on the recently released Pixel 5a.
If you own this smartphone and want to run the fifth beta of Android 12 on it, you just need to register it with the Android Beta program by following this link. Once you do, you will receive the Android 12 Beta 5 over-the-air update.
If you’ve already participated in the beta, you should have an over-the-air update available. If you haven’t received the notification yet, go to Settings> System> System Update and check manually. You may have to double-click the Check for Updates button, but you should get it.
The build number is SPB5.210812.002 and the size of the update depends on which device you are using. With the release of Beta 4 last month, Android 12 has already reached a near stable state. The fifth beta version contains “the latest fixes and optimizations”.
The official release of the final version of Android 12, according to Google, will take place “in just a few weeks.”
