It was only yesterday that Sony posted a list of devices slated to be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and now the handset maker is giving Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact owners the chance to beta test the latest version of Android on their handsets via its Concept for Android beta initiative.
Basically, the Concept for Android initiative is a beta program that will allow up to 10,000 Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact owners to test a build of Android 6.0 Marshmallow on their devices. Users in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ireland, Germany, and the United Kingdom are eligible to take part. All you have to do is install the Concept for Android app on your Xperia Z3 or Z3 Compact and register your details.
“Rather than merely previewing a new software version, this is about a proof-of-concept way of working, whereby we build a new user experience – and more importantly, process – from the ground up, that will also allow us to be more responsive in developing and rolling out the Sony Android upgrades Xperia users want, more quickly.”
Remember, only the first 10,000 users will gain access to the proof-of-concept build of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so if you own an eligible handset and want to take part, there’s no time to delay. If successful, you will be notified in the next couple of weeks. You can download the Concept for Android app by clicking the Play Store link below.
