Android O Developer Preview 4 released, public build coming soon

The last Android O developer preview dropped in early June. That was Dev Preview 3. And here we are, nearly two months later, and the Android team has gone ahead and dropped Dev Preview 4.

This will be the final preview before the official, public Android O build launches to consumers “later this summer.”

There’s nothing really visually new in this update, but stability and performance will have certainly improved. Google says “it includes the final system behaviors, the latest bug fixes and optimizations, and the final APIs (API level 26).”

If you’ve already got an eligible device enrolled in the Android Beta Program, you should be receiving an update to Dev Preview 4 in the “next few days.” Or, as always, you can download and flash this update manually. The O Developer Preview is available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Nexus Player. Enrolled devices will automatically update to the official version of Android O when released.

And as always, Android VP of Engineering, Dave Burke, loves trolling us on what the name might be. Let us know in the comments what you want Android O to be called.
