We already know that the Android 13 QPR1 beta will begin next month, and Google is preparing by updating the Android Beta Program and providing various details about Android 14 including when it may launch for Pixel.
Google reiterated that the QPR1 (Quarterly Platform Release) beta will begin the next month and that the Android 13 Beta has ended with the stable public release of Android 13 in August 2022. Just a reminder
After installing the stable public update, you can choose not to participate in the program until September without having your data erased. You can automatically receive the Android 13 QPR1 beta releases starting in September if you keep your device enrolled in the beta program and indicate that you would like to continue beta testing. In the meanwhile, the commonly asked questions area has undergone a number of adjustments. To begin with, Google no longer includes a complete list of compatible Pixel phones in the initial FAQ. Instead, you must employ the Your eligible devices carousel/grid:
They will show up on this page if you have signed in to your Google Account on any compatible devices.
The business has added that smartphones wishing to participate in the beta program must be running a stable public build that is not a Developer Preview. Google advises users running Developer Previews to upgrade to the most recent stable version and then sign up for the Android Beta Program. Nevertheless, it should still be possible for you to manually sideload from DP to Beta before joining the Beta Program.
The beta testing for Android 13 QPR was supposed to last through June 2023, according to Google. There will most likely only be two QPRs, T1B (stable in December) and T2B, as they are currently slated to run through March 2023.
Android 14 beta releases will come after Android 13 QPR beta upgrades until March 2023.
Android 14 beta releases then begin, most likely in April with UPB builds for the Pixel. This would be consistent with the way Android 13 Beta 1 was made available a month before I/O this year. In February, the Android 14 Developer Preview might launch.
You are running a beta version if the build numbers begin with TPB, T1B, T2B, or UPB.
By reducing the duration of the Android 13 QPR, Google can avoid conducting two beta programs concurrently, as it did this year. It happens as Android 13’s QPR3 had a rather low-key release.
