About Android 13 QPR2

Following the stable release of Android 13 to AOSP, we continue to update the platform with fixes and improvements that are then rolled out to supported devices. These releases happen on a quarterly cadence through Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs), which are delivered both to AOSP and to Google Pixel devices as part of Feature Drops.

Although these updates don't include app-impacting API changes, we provide images of the latest QPR beta builds so you can test your app with these builds as needed.

Unlike developer previews and betas for unreleased versions of Android, these builds are suitable for general use. However, please review any known issues that are listed on this page.

Android 13 QPR2 builds on the updates in Android 13 QPR1 and the Android 13 initial release and includes the next round of refinements such as bug fixes and improvements to stability and performance.

How to get QPR2 Beta 3

You can install Android 13 QPR2 Beta 3 on any of the following Google Pixel devices:

  • Pixel 4a and 4a (5G)
  • Pixel 5 and 5a
  • Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

General advisories

  • Some apps might not function as expected when running on this release. This limitation includes Google's apps as well as other apps.
  • Android 13 QPR beta builds aren't Compatibility Test Suite (CTS)‑approved, but they have passed preliminary testing and provide a stable set of pre-release APIs for developers. Apps that depend on CTS-approved builds or use SafetyNet APIs might not work normally on Android 13 QPR beta builds.
