Android 13 QPR1 Beta 2 is now available for Pixel phones as the quarterly platform release preview continues.
Android 13 QPR1 should see another beta next month with a stable launch in December. It will bring the “next round of tweaks 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 as they start as beta versions instead of developer previews (DPs). Google says these “buildings are suitable for general use.”
If you want to leave the beta program after installing a preview release, a device wipe is required. When the stable comes out, you can unsubscribe and avoid it.
Google did not list “top fixed issues” with this release. Beta 2 officially includes “the latest security patch from October and the latest bug fixes and optimizations for performance and stability.”
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 submit bugs to 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 in 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 coming hours. If you need help, here’s our full guide to installing Android 13.
