Google will continue the Android 13 Beta Program with Quarterly Platform Releases, beginning in September with QPR1 as it did last year.
We continue to upgrade the platform with fixes and enhancements that are then distributed out to supported devices following the stable release of Android 13 to AOSP. Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs), which are distributed to AOSP and Google Pixel devices as part of Feature Drops, are the means through which these updates are made on a quarterly cadence.
Android 13 QPR1 “features the next set of refinements including as bug fixes and improvements to reliability and performance” and is expected to have three betas before a stable release in December.
The amount of user-facing modifications will need to be determined, but QPRs should be very stable as they are currently betas rather than development previews (DPs). These “builds are acceptable for broad use,” according to Google.
We provide copies of the most recent QPR beta releases so you can test your app with these builds as necessary, even if these updates don’t include API changes that will have an impact on apps.
If you haven’t yet loaded QPR1 Beta 1, you can still unenroll from google.com/android/beta if you’re still a part of the Beta Program from testing Android 13 earlier this year without wiping your device.
After the stable release of Android 13 QPR1 in December, you will have another chance to exit the software without losing your data if you have already updated.
On Pixel phones, the Android Beta Feedback app is once more accessible for reporting issues. The Android Beta community is on Reddit , and you may visit it via the app drawer or Quick Settings to report bugs in the Google issue tracker.
The ensuing problems have been resolved:

Fixed a number of issues with Pixel 6a devices that made it challenging for customers to set up Fingerprint Unlock or unlock their smartphones. a problem that, in some circumstances, such as when a user gestured from the edge of the screen to go back, caused the system UI to crash, has been fixed. Fixed a problem where, occasionally, even when the affected device was already successfully connected to a 5G UW network, the 5G icon would appear instead of the 5G UW icon. The Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a, as well as the Android Emulator, all support Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1 system images .
