Select to opt your device in to the beta program, and you will get OTA updates as soon as Google releases it. Please backup all your data before opting in to the program, and also before leaving it, should you decide to. Users who previously opted in to the Android N Beta Program, must re-enroll to get the Android O beta.
Remember that this beta is to collect feedback from users, and that it is not meant to be used as a daily driver, because it has some issues.
