Google launches Android N Developer Preview 3, promises 'beta quality' for your main device

Since announcing Android N a couple of months ago, Google has released two Developer Previews so far. Until now, the company has recommended that developers use the previews only on secondary devices - but that's now changing.

At its I/O developer conference today, Google announced Android N Developer Preview 3, and said that it considers its latest preview to be of 'beta quality', and that users can feel confident to use it on their main devices. The new build will be available later today.

The preview is available for the following devices only:

  • Nexus 5X
  • Nexus 6
  • Nexus 6P
  • Nexus 9
  • Nexus Player
  • Pixel C
  • General Mobile 4G (Android One)

Sony Xperia Z3 owners can also install the preview via Sony's N Developer Preview Program.

Google has previously said that it will offer a total of five Developer Previews before Android N is released later this year. You can find out more about the preview program via

The company announced today that it is inviting users to offer suggestions for the name of its new OS update.
