Unlike, the Nexus devices, users will not be able to enroll in the N preview online and then get the update over the air. They will have to install Sony’s ‘Xperia Companion’ app on a Windows or Mac computer and then click to download the Developer Preview and manually flash the device following which future updates will arrive over the air direct from Sony.

Sony Xperia Z3 owners will get a number of features like multi-window, bundled notifications, direct reply notifications. Google released Android N developer preview images last month.
