Android 12 Beta 2 offers a variety of new features, such as the color-changing ‘Material You’ user interface, a new privacy panel with switches for the device’s microphone and camera, and a Wi-Fi UX experience.
It seems that all the new functionality has attracted a wider audience than beta versions of Google’s mobile operating systems.
The Android 12 beta is by far the most downloaded / installed beta ever. Speaking of which, Beta 2 is available today: https://t.co/VR8CtXKWkZ

Android 12 Beta 2 is “by far” the company’s “most downloaded / installed beta version,” according to Dave Burke, vice president of engineering for Android at the tech giant.
If it’s not part of the beta yet, you can check if you’re using a Pixel smartphone or have a device from one of the other 10 manufacturers that offer access to the Android 12 beta.
To download Android 12 Beta 2, you will need to head to Settings> System> System Update. You can install this version on any Pixel 3, 3a, 4, 4a or 5 series device.
