To get the Android 12 beta on your Pixel device, you simply need to go to the Android beta website while signed in to your Google Account and enroll in the Android beta program. At that point, it will display your eligible devices and you just need to click on the "Opt in" button.
On your Pixel, you will need to navigate to Settings > System > Advanced > System Update.
If you successfully enrolled in the Android 12 beta program, it will show an available system update. You just need to tap the "Download and Install" button at the bottom-right corner. After the update is done downloading and installing, you need to click the "Reboot Now" button and that that's it, you're running the Android 12 beta.
As this is the first public beta it would be advisable not to put this on your primary phone unless you are comfortable with some instability and risk with that device.
