Important Considerations

Beta software is inherently less stable than official releases. You may encounter bugs or app compatibility issues. If you rely on your phone for daily tasks, it’s generally best to wait for the stable version of Android 15.

Google will likely release several more beta updates before the final version of Android 15 arrives. These updates will likely bring additional features and further refinements based on user feedback.
