Installing the Nexus 5X Android 8.0 update beta might be tempting but most of you should probably stay put on Android Nougat.

The Nexus 5X Android O update, now confirmed to be Android 8.0, won’t arrive until the third quarter but you can try it out ahead of time thanks to the Android O beta also known as a Developer Preview.

Google’s Android O beta for the Nexus 5X brings new features, tweaks, and other improvements to the aging smartphone.

There are plenty of reasons to consider installing the Android O beta on your Nexus 5X. It includes new emojis, the potential for improved battery life and performance, a smart autofill feature, Picture-in-Picture mode, and some key improvements to notifications.

That said, there are also some good reasons to avoid Google’s Nexus 5X Android O beta.

Some of you might want to wait a few more days before installing Android 8.0 on your phone. Other Nexus 5X owners are probably better off waiting for the official version of the Nexus 5X Android O update to arrive.

We’ve been using the Android O beta on our Nexus for a few weeks now and today we want to walk you through some reasons why you should, and shouldn’t, install the Android O update on your device.

If you want to help Google improve the overall quality of the final Nexus 5X Android O update, you might think about trying the beta sometime between right now and the official release later this year. 

The Android O beta gives Nexus 5X users a chance to try out new features and test performance. It also gives users a chance to help Google fix bugs and polish performance. 

On its Android Beta signup page Google, in bold no less, tells users signing up for the beta that their feedback "will help us identify and fix issues, and make the platform even better."

If you've run into a problem with a previous version of Android, consider helping Google test the Nexus 5X Android 8.0 update ahead of its official release in late summer. 

Your efforts could prevent a major problem from appearing in the final version of Android O.
