Android 13 QPR1 Beta 2 is now available for Pixel phones as the platform’s quarterly release preview continues.
Android 13 QPR1 is expected to see one more beta next month with a stable launch in December. It will bring the “next round of improvements such as bug fixes and stability and performance improvements”. Meanwhile, there are already more than a few user-facing changes in Beta 1.
These QPRs are relatively stable because they start as betas instead of developer previews (DP). Google says these “versions are suitable for general use”.
If you want to leave the beta program after installing a pre-release version, a device wipe is required. After leaving the stable, you can unsubscribe and avoid this.
Google hasn’t listed any “major issues fixed” with this release. Beta 2 officially includes “the latest October security patch, as well as the latest bug fixes and performance and stability optimizations”.
The Android Beta Feedback app is available on Pixel phones to detail issues. You can access it from the app drawer or via quick settings to report bugs in Google’s issue tracker, while the Android Beta Community is on Reddit.
Android 13 QPR1 Beta 2 system images are available for Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a, as well as the Android Emulator.
Most users will install Beta 2 (T1B2.220916.004) with the October Security Patch from the Android Beta Program website. You can expect an OTA update in the next few hours. If you need help, here’s our full guide to installing Android 13.
