Nokia Mobile has confirmed participation to the Android 13 Beta program for its smartphones. While the confirmation came during Google’s event yesterday, page for Nokia phones Android 13 developer preview program is up now.
On the “Nokia phones Android 13 developer preview program” page no devices are mentioned and it seems more than one smartphone will be able to participate in the Beta. The good news is that the Android 13 Beta updates will be OTA and smartphone owners would be able to register using “My Device app”.
Ready to get started?
- Open the My Device app on your device, click on the Support banner at the bottom, and scroll down to “Android developer preview”.
- Allow the app to check your device IMEI (so we can check device eligibility), agree to the software license terms and conditions, and after checking the Important Notes, confirm you’re happy to continue.

Get developer preview over the air
Over-the-air (OTA) is the easiest way to get your hands on the new Android developer preview builds. Due to image file size, it is recommended that users download builds over Wi-Fi.
Please remember that installing an ADP build will result in the loss of user data. We recommend that you back up any important data before requesting the build.
After you request the update, we’ll push the build to you within 12 hours and you’ll get a notification on your device when the build is ready to install.
Alternatively, if you want to try and get the build sooner, wait about 20 minutes after requesting the build (so we can get the build synched with your IMEI) and then try a manual push request from Settings > About Phone > System Updates.
After installing, you can go ahead and test your apps. Don’t forget to let us know what you think – you’ll be helping with software improvements and enhancements later down the line.
Please report any issues through the pre-installed Customer Feedback app as this is the quickest way for us to receive your issues for further review.
Also, feel free to discuss your experiences with other developer preview users in the Nokia phones community.
Please review the points below before proceeding with the registration process:
