Google has unleashed early versions of Android 15, with the latest being the first beta. You can download it manually onto a Pixel 6, Pixel 7, Pixel 8 series phone, and also the Pixel Fold and Pixel Tablet. If you don’t have a Pixel device, you can use the 64-bit system images with the Android Emulator in Android Studio.

As is customary, Google has also revealed an Android 15 release timeline. It’s very similar to the release trajectory of Android 13 and Android 14.

As you can see from the image above, the Android 15 release schedule aligns with what we saw last year. With the first and second developer previews now out the window, the first beta has just arrived with the second beta scheduled to land sometime in May. Now that the beta is out, regular folks who don’t want to flash the developer preview manually can now experience Android 15 for the first time.

After a few beta releases, the software will near platform stability in June-July, followed by the final release. Google doesn’t mention a month for the final Android 15 stable rollout. However, the final version of the software will likely roll out alongside the Pixel 9 series in October. We’re saying that because Google rolled out Android 14 on the same day as the Pixel 8 lineup.

Naturally, the Android 15 release date for Pixel phones will precede other brands. Samsung and others should also start announcing the availability details of the new Android version around the same time as its final release.

Below are all the significant milestones for Android. We’ll keep updating the list as and when Google releases fresh updates.

  • February 16, 2024 — Android 15 DP1
  • March 21, 2024 — Android 15 DP2
  • April 11, 2024 — Android 15 Beta 1
