Apply a device OTA image

This page provides links to over-the-air (OTA) Google Pixel device images and describes how to apply an OTA update to a supported device. Applying an OTA image can help you recover a device that received an OTA update for an Android 12 Beta build but would not start up after the update was installed. If you are trying to get Android 12 on your device but you aren't trying to recover from a failed OTA update, see Get Android 12 instead.

Android 12 Beta builds are only available for the following Google Pixel devices:

  • Pixel 3 and 3 XL
  • Pixel 3a and 3a XL
  • Pixel 4 and 4 XL
  • Pixel 4a and 4a (5G)
  • Pixel 5
  • Pixel 5a

After you've installed a Beta build to your Pixel device, you'll automatically be offered over-the-air updates of later preview builds. We'll also deliver OTA images at each milestone, so you can choose the approach that works best for your test environment.

Use the links and instructions below to update your supported device to the latest milestone build for your device. See Get Android 12 for other ways to get Android 12 for testing and development.

Apply an OTA image

Download an OTA device image from the table below and apply it by following the updating instructions listed on Full OTA Images for Nexus and Pixel Devices.

You can choose to revert to a production build at any time.
