As usual, Google Pixel devices will be the first to receive the Android 15 beta. The Pixel 6, Pixel 7, Pixel 8 series, Pixel Fold, and Pixel Tablet are currently compatible with the latest beta. Several other manufacturers have also joined the beta program, including HONOR Magic 6 Pro and Magic V2, Vivo X100 and IQOO 12- in select regions like India, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Thailand, the Nothing Phone 2a and Phone 2, OnePlus 12 and OnePlus Open, and the Camon 30 Pro 5G. Notably, brands like ASUS, Samsung, and Sony have yet to announce their Android 15 beta plans.

As for the remaining OEMs, users can still experience Android 15 using the 64-bit system images with the Android Emulator in Android Studio. This allows them to explore new features and simulate various screen sizes and device characteristics.

Regarding the release of the final version, Google usually brings the final version with the launch of its new Pixel series. This year, the Pixel 9 is likely to launch around autumn, and following this launch, we can expect the final rollout of Android 15. Google has also indicated the final release will occur after July, following Platform Stability.

Android 15 New Upgrades and Features

Google has introduced Android 15, its latest OS upgrade, which brings significant enhancements for both users and developers.

For developers, Android 15 features a new Privacy Sandbox, enhancing user privacy by limiting data access and tracking. There are also camera extensions providing tools for precise control over camera hardware, enabling better integration and performance. A new performance optimisation framework is also available, allowing for more efficient thermal, CPU, and GPU management, promising improved overall performance of the devices.

On the user-facing side, Android 15 introduces several notable features. Users can now archive infrequently used apps directly from the settings, freeing up space without losing data. There are also accessibility improvements, including enhanced support for Braille displays in Android TalkBack, making the OS more inclusive.

Regarding security upgrades, Android 15 brings an OS-level API for end-to-end encryption for contact keys, ensuring better data protection. Additionally, apps will now fit the entire screen by default with the edge-to-edge apps feature. Health Connect gets an update with new data types, and partial screen sharing allows users to record specific app windows instead of the entire screen, providing more control over shared content.
