As you read through the Privacy Sandbox on Android documentation, use the Developer Preview or Beta button to select the program version that you're working with, as instructions may vary.


To perform end-to-end testing with the Beta version of Privacy Sandbox on Android, you need to interact with an Android 13 device. You can either request to add your Android 13 device to the Beta allowlist or use a Beta-approved emulator image provided in the AdService SDK Extension.

Set up an Android 13 device

The Privacy Sandbox on Android Beta program begins early 2023, starting with a small percentage of supported Android 13 devices. During the initial rollout stages, you can set up your own device for early testing if you join the early testers program. This’ll allow you to test the Privacy Sandbox APIs on a limited number of your own Android 13 devices and apps.

To make sure your device is running the latest module versions:

  1. Sign-in to your Android 13 device with a Google Account.
  2. Go to Settings > Security & privacy > Updates > Google Play system update to ensure your device is up to date. Select Update as necessary.
  3. When the Google Play system update is complete, reboot the device.
  4. Check to see if the SDK Extensions are available on the device.

Set up an Android device emulator image

To set up a Developer Preview emulator image to run the Privacy Sandbox on Android, do the following:

  1. Install the latest Canary build or Stable build of Android Studio.
  2. In Android Studio, go to Tools > SDK Manager.
  3. In the SDK Tools tab, select the latest version of Android Emulator, and click OK. This action installs the latest version if it isn't already installed.
  4. Go to Tools > Device Manager, follow the instructions on the page that appears, and select Create device.
  5. If you don't already have a Privacy Sandbox on Android system image installed that matches your device definition, click Download next to the "Tiramisu (Extension Level 4)" Release Name to get it.
  6. Return to the list of virtual devices in the Device Manager, and then select the Launch this AVD action for your Privacy Sandbox on Android virtual device to start it.
