Google has now officially started the Android 11 Developer Preview program. The company made this new release just five months after the stable rollout of the Android 10.
Earlier, the first beta of Android Q was released in March.
Although we get stable build update in August, if you are curious about this next update of Android, you can download Android 11 now for Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, and Pixel 4 XL. But the original Google Pixel and Pixel XL are not supported officially.
Download Android 11 Developer Preview
Since the first developer preview of Android 11 is available only for the limited phones, to get it, you should have any one of those devices.
If you have an unlocked bootloader, then you can manually flash full factory images. If you have a locked bootloader, you can download the OTA image. Follow this guide to install Android 11 developer preview on your pixel devices.

The procedure is not as easy as just registering to receive a beta OTA either way. Google has intentionally decided to do so since it does not want people to opt for the buggy update without preparing for it accidentally.
You should even have the correct drivers and ADB installed and configured on to your PC.
