Following the debut of the mid-range smartphones on Thursday, Google is distributing Android 13 Beta 4.1 to the Pixel 6a.
In order to solve bugs, the Android 13 Beta 4 patch was released last Monday for all other phones. This should be one of the last updates before the general public can begin using it. Today’s update adds.A2 to the build number and is only for the Pixel 6a.
It’s simple to register using the Android Beta Program or manually sideloading (faster):

Update: The Pixel 6a should be running the July security patch, just like all other Beta 4.1 devices, according to the Android 13 Beta release notes . However, following installation, the Security Hub and System update screen both list June 1, 2022.
Android 13 should bring the July security patch to the Pixel 6a after its day one upgrade to June, which just went live for Global/Unlocked and ATandamp;T/T-Mobile smartphones this afternoon. This is in addition to other visual and functional enhancements. (This occurs as no Pixel has yet received the August security patch, which is unusual.)
Meanwhile, it appears that Android 13 will be released in September, as indicated by the security release notes that were published today. Uncertainty surrounds whether the Pixel upgrades will go live on the first Monday of that given month or whether they will only be released to AOSP (Android Open Source Project). Like last year, the OTAs might begin later in the month.
