Asus has kicked off Android Pie beta testing program for the ZenFone Max Pro M1. It is a smartphone from early 2018 and was the first phone from the company to feature stock Android. It proved to be a success as it crossed the 1 million mark within four months of its availability. And now, the phone is all set to get updated to the latest Android version as promised by the company.
The team is now looking for beta testers to test the ZenFone Max Pro M1 Android Pie beta build ahead of the public release. It will allow them to find out different issues and bugs so that they could be fixed in time. Since there will be a number of beta testers, the whole process of discovering and squashing bugs will become a lot faster.
To be part of the program, one must be using a ZenFone Max Pro M1 which is an obvious thing. The user should be willing to share details like IMEI, Serial Number(SN), and Current Firmware. The official language of communication will be English and the user must be familiar with how Android works. If you fulfill all these conditions, you can submit your application. But just know that it is a beta build which means there will be bugs and issues to face and Asus will not provide a downgrade option unless you quit from the program altogether.
For those who are using its successor ZenFone Max Pro M2, Asus has already started Android Pie beta testing for the device. There are plans for upgrading a total of 16 ZenFone models by the end of this year. We will keep you updated as more devices will receive the update in the future.
