Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2 is Live for Nexus and Pixel Devices
Android 8.1 Oreo Developer Preview 2 is now available for the eligible Nexus and Pixel devices. It it is the Last Android 8.1 Beta and arrives in as build OPP6.171019.012. The new version is readily available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P.

The system images are available to download for the above mentioned devices, but that requires an unlocked bootloader. There's also an other option, you can enroll your device in automatic OTA system updates through the Android Beta Program. Once enrolled, your device will receive regular over-the-air (OTA) updates of all milestone builds in the Android 8.1 Developer Preview. When the next version of Android is released, your device will automatically update to the final version. 


You can also un-enroll your device at any time. The device will receive an OTA update to the most recent production version of Android available for that device (for example, Android 8.0 Oreo). The update requires a full device reset, so user data on the device will be removed.

If you are already running Android 8.1 Developer preview 1, you can easily update to DP2 via an OTA Update which weighs in at around 169MB.

Google is calling this near-final system images and says that it should be used for final testing. We may get stable Android 8.1 Oreo by the end of December.
