The Android M Developer Preview has been announced, and now it's time to try it out on a device.

After a little wait while the download links populated, you can now get to the Google Developers site and download an Android M factory image to flash onto a Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and even a Nexus Player.

Before you get to downloading and flashing, be sure to remember that these are developer images and should not be considered ready to use as the main software on your phone. These are for evaluation and development purposes, so take a look, but keep the impressions of how things are running in the context of that fact. Now, go forth and download at the link below — if you need help getting the images to properly apply to your phone, be sure to follow our comprehensive guide on the subject.
