The Android 12 beta is the most downloaded beta in Android history “by far”

The Android 12 beta is “by far our most downloaded/installed beta ever”, says Dave Burke, the VP of Engineering for Android. Unfortunately, he doesn’t give any concrete numbers so we can compare with previous betas.

Android 12 first entered the beta testing phase in May and it brought the first major redesign to the interface in a long time. This new iteration is called “Material You”. That surely helped spark interest in the new version.
