Android 12 was showcased recently during the Google I/O event -- its annual developer conference. However, the statement on record-breaking download numbers came after the second beta of the upcoming operating software (OS) was released. The new beta brings several visual and privacy improvements like the much talked about Material You design and Privacy Dashboard.
Some other user interface (UI) tweaks like new animations and transitions have also been found in the new beta, which further enhances the user experience visually.
The second beta is now available to download on some devices. If you're looking to download it on your phone, here's how to do it. But do note that beta versions are unfinished built, which means it might come with some bugs, and it is advised to download it on a secondary phone.
