The Android Developer Preview 4 is now out for manual download for Nexus and Pixel users.
(CCM) — Google has finally released the Android Developer Preview 4 for supported Nexus and Pixel devices. The company has called it a "release candidate" that makes it stable for developers and first timers. The release comes with many bug fixes and performance enhancements. It also contains final APIs that were a part of the previous Developer Preview version for Android 8.0.
The tool will be available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, or Nexus Player devices. Users of these devices will be able to run it by flashing the update manually on their respective devices. The links for the update are available on this page. For those who are enrolled in the Android Beta Program and are waiting for the OTA update, it will be rolled out in a few days.
Android Developer Preview 4 marks the final destination for Google. The next preview will be the final one in the series. After that, we will see Google rolling out the public version of Android 8.0. It would be interesting to see what Google names the version this time. The popular choice for Android O seems to be Android Oreo. We will get to know the name when Google releases the final preview.
