- Since the builds are in beta stage, they should be buggy and might not be stable enough for a daily driver
- Face unlock isn’t available, features like Google Assistant and video calls aren’t functional and some apps may crash
OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro have finally got the Android 11 beta 1 for interested users. While OPPO and Xiaomi announced the beta program for their flagships, OnePlus beta builds are already available and the company says that this is “the very first Android 11 beta as part of the developer preview program.” Meaning OnePlus may rollout updates as and when Google releases new builds of Android 11. Since the builds are in beta stage, they should be buggy and might not be stable enough for a daily driver.
OnePlus notes that face unlock isn’t available and features like Google Assistant and video calls aren’t functional and some apps may crash. Flashing the Android 11 beta preview will completely wipe the data, so we strongly suggest that you make a backup before updating.
