How to Install Android N Developer Preview OTA: 
Installing the Android N Developer Preview on one of the compatible devices, OTA is a much easier way than flashing it manually. 


For the OTA Installation, simply go to https://google.com/android/beta or g.co/androidbeta using Google Chrome. You will be required to Log In to your account. The Android N Developer Preview webpage has all the information about the Android Beta Program. Scroll down to the list of devices, compatible for the OTA update. Click on “Enroll Device” besides the device of choice. You have to agree to the Terms & Conditions , Click on “Join Beta” & boom, the device gets enrolled. A OTA download option will pop up, click on download or go to Settings-About Phone-System Update & Click on Download. Once the OTA is downloaded, click on “Restart & Install”. It takes around 5 minutes for the process to finish & Android N Developer Preview is installed. Nothing gets deleted. The data & settings remain as it is.
