Asus ZenFone 6 or Asus 6Z, as it is known in India, is now part of the Android 11 beta programme. The development was shared by Asus on its community forum, giving Asus ZenFone 6 users an opportunity to enrol in the programme. It requires phone users to be on the latest Android 10 build version 17.1810.2008.171 that was released last week. This update brought an option to enrol in the beta programme through the Setting menu. Asus ZenFone 6 users have till September 4 to enrol in the programme.
The Asus ZenFone 6 beta tester recruitment programme, as mentioned on Asus's official community forum, states that full-functionality and a bug free experience cannot be assured with the beta build. It states that the purpose for this programme, as with other beta test programmers, is to get feedback from the community and implement it in the final Android 11 release. Notably, after enrolling into the programme, Asus will reveal on September 9 if you have been accepted or not.
