Kindly note that the LineageOS 15.0 custom ROM currently available for the Pixel C is based on AOSP and it is only in the beta version. Since the ROM has not crossed the development stage yet, some of the features may not work properly or you might encounter some bugs. So, keep these things in mind before you proceed to install the Android Oreo 8.0 based LineageOS 15 on your Pixel C as it might not be suitable to be used as a daily driver yet.
