    I would say if you are curious and want to see but can also live with things possibly breaking.

    Pretty much what he said, if you are curious and want to try something new that may or may not work, give it a shot. If you want things to work and be stable, I'd stick with Oreo.

    I am curious for sure....I guess my main concern is....will it casue my phone to brick and not work at all? This is my daily driver and cant afford to have my phone lock up. If that isn't a risk, then I will try it I think.

    Just know, if you install the beta and want to switch back to Oreo, you will have to wipe your phone in order to remove the beta software.

    Seems like your ready make the jump
    I think worse case some apps might give problems or unusual battery drain but so far it's been a good first beta which is rare

    your phone isn't going to stop working. the worst that will happen is that apps might crash, you might see some bugs...but honestly, there isn't a lot of risk really.

    Something I don't like is that they removed the ability to open the clock app and set alarms from the notification area. Hopefully this is something they reintroduce in a later build.

    Also, have we always had the option to change the shape of our icons with Pixel Launcher? Never noticed it before now. I have an OG Pixel XL and also a Pixel 2 XL both running P now and the option to change icon shape is present on the Pixel 2 but not the OG. Maybe this is just something I missed?

    The clear all is counterproductive to the resource management system that Android places at the center of its battery conservation and software regency strategies.
    Thanks. While that may all be true, when I'm working I only want the three or four apps that I use most often to be in memory so that I can easily switch between them. In order to do that I normally 'Clear all', then open the apps I need and then it's a piece of cake to switch between them. Now I have to manually clear every app I've had open in the last day or so and then do that - what a hassle.
    Typical price of progress... let's make things more difficult for people that know what they're doing.

    I thought this was the case, but if you open the notification area, you should be able to click on the time to open the Clock app. But you seem to need to click on the date :-)

    What is more annoying is 'Settings' cog now requires the notification tray to be fully open before it appears!

    Okie doke. Update done. Fell asleep installing it and finished it off this morning. Lloyds works. Outlook works. Like the gestures. Airdroid kept crashing. Will restart my phone and see if it stops. Am pleased I bit the bullet.

    That is very iOS. Have to manually clear them as well.

    Anyone else notice a really slow wakeup when clicking the power button or using the finger print.

    I notice quite a delay from screen off to on.

    Been using this on my OG Pixel since Tuesday . The beta is running so good on that phone, I opted in on my main phone (Pixel 2 XL) yesterday.
    So far so good, will see how it goes.

    No but a friend of mine mentioned that too. I think it was solved with a reboot.

    I usually use the FPS to wake up my phone(s) .Seem to be pretty responsive so far, on either of my phones.

    What do you mean by quite a delay ? A few seconds ?
