A few weeks ago we announced the release of Android P Beta for Xperia XZ2 devices. Today we release the Android P Beta 2 software. If you already have previous Beta version flashed on your Xperia XZ2 device you’ll get an over-the-air update. If not, visit our Android P Beta site to see how to get started.

Android P is the next version of Android, which will become available to consumers later this year. Use the Beta version to test your apps with the new features of Android P, to ensure they’re compatible with the upcoming version of Android. You also have the opportunity to send feedback on the software. The goal of the Beta version is to gather feedback from the developer community to improve and iterate on the platform.
