OTA images for Pixel

Following the stable release of Android 12 to AOSP, we continue to update the platform with fixes and improvements that are then rolled out to supported devices. These releases happen on a quarterly cadence through Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs), which are delivered to AOSP and to Google Pixel devices as part of Feature Drops.

Although these updates do not include app-impacting API changes, we provide images of the latest QPR beta builds so you can test your app with these builds as needed.

To find OTA images for already-released, stable versions of the platform, see Full OTA Images for Nexus and Pixel Devices.

This page provides links to over-the-air (OTA) Google Pixel device images and describes how to apply an OTA update to a supported device. Applying an OTA image can help you recover a device that received an OTA update for an Android 12 QPR beta build but would not start up after the update was installed. If you are trying to get an Android 12 QPR beta build on your device but you aren't trying to recover from a failed OTA update, see page for Factory images for Pixel instead.

Builds are available for the following Google Pixel devices:

  • Pixel 4 and 4 XL
  • Pixel 4a and 4a (5G)
  • Pixel 5 and Pixel 5a
  • Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

After you've installed a Beta build to your Pixel device, you'll automatically be offered over-the-air updates of later builds. We'll also deliver flashable images for each new build, so you can choose the approach that works best for your test environment.

Use the links and instructions below to update your supported device to the latest build for your device. See Get Android 12 QPR Betas for other ways to get QPR3 Beta 3 for testing and development.

Apply an OTA image

Download an OTA device image from the following table and apply it by following the updating instructions listed on Full OTA Images for Nexus and Pixel Devices.
