Beta testers to get Android N OTA updates, manual flashers won't

I enrolled and then unenrolled after reading the known issues section. I'm not a developer but thought of the novelty of getting things first. Soon as I remembered the annoying teething issues from my custom rom days, I was immediately reminded why I went with Nexus.
Stability, speed, optimisations, security and FAST updates. Beta Testing is not needed for me.

Just wait for the later Previews
Preview 1 (initial release, alpha)
Preview 2 (incremental update, beta)
Preview 3 (incremental update, beta)
Preview 4 (final APIs and official SDK, Play publishing)
Preview 5 (near-final system images for final testing)
Preview 4+ should be pretty stable

Meanwhile my 3 Galaxy devices - an Indonesian S6 G920F, a Singaporean Note5 N920I, and a dual SIM S6 Edge+ G9287C, are ALL still on Lollipop.

Speaking of beta testers. Is this website a beta? Keeps freezing on my Air 2. I can go other websites no problems. Maybe you need to do some house cleaning? Go down the line and your fired! Don't let the door hit you. Hire some good tech people. Mean while I'll be checking out Android Central.

Yeah, same happens with me. I have to close the browser and open it again ti fix it. It only happens with desktop version on mobile devices.

I have a iPhone 6S as my daily driver and a Nexus 6 as my backup. Perfect for trying out beta software. Downloading now!

Just downloaded it on my Nexus 9, now I just have to wait the 85 years for the battery to charge to a high enough level to install it!

So it's a beta yet still performs noticeably better on my tablet than stock Marshmallow or Lollipop ever did.

I'll wait until someone makes a TWRP flashable zip.
