Don't Install If You Haven't Prepared for the Beta
Don't install the Android Pie beta if you haven't prepared.
While you might be tempted to jump right in with the beta, this isn't wise. Again, this is pre-release software and it could give you some major headaches if you aren't careful.
If you spend sometime preparing yourself and your device for the move from Oreo to Pie, it will go a long way toward preventing headaches.
We recommend checking in with IT (if you have an IT department) before you install the beta because it could have a negative impact on the software you use for your job.
We also recommend making a backup of your important files, just in case something goes wrong with the installation and your data. Data loss issues are rare, but they can happen.
You'll also want to update your apps with the latest updates. If you don't update them, they might not work properly.
