Developer preview issue tracker

Use the Android Developer Preview issue tracker to create new issues and to view, track, and vote for issues that you and other developers have created.

You can also report issues using the Android Beta Feedback app, included in the Developer Preview software on Pixel devices. See the details in the Android Beta Feedback app section on this page or read the frequently asked questions.

Create and vote for issues

Before creating your own issue, check the release notes and search the lists of top open issues and recently created issues to see if someone else has already reported it.

You can subscribe and vote for an issue by starring it in the issue tracker. For more information, see Starring an issue. For general help with Google Issue Tracker, see the documentation.

Due to the volume of feedback, submitted issues from any channel might not receive a response and issues might be closed upon release of the next Developer Preview or Beta version. This process allows Google to focus on issues that are still reproducible in the latest release.

If your feedback is closed and you’re still experiencing the issue on the latest Developer Preview build, please check the release notes and the lists of top open issues and recently created issues and star the issue if it already exists. If not, please submit your feedback again.
