Google has released a new update to the Android 13 Beta. Alhough we’re only halfway through the month, the new Android 13 Beta 2.1 patch will address a few issues that affected Pixel devices immediately following the initial release of the Android 13 Public Beta.
Google’s release notes include the following fixes:
This mid-cycle update still includes the same list of known issues as the Beta 2 build that was released back on May 11 except the ones that are addressed above. According to 9to5Google, the search bar issue remains despite the mid-cycle update.Google Pixel 5, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 5a
If you are already on the Android 13 Beta, the update will automatically notify you via OTA notification. If you are on the Android 12 QPR (Quarterly Platform Release) Beta program, you’ll need to opt out and re-enroll for the Android 13 Beta – keep in mind that the Android 13 Beta is still in early Beta and there is a meaty list of issues. Those who wish to enroll in either Beta program can enroll here.
Remember, if you wish to enroll, you won’t be able to revert to the public release without wiping data in most cases. Make sure you do proper research before enrolling on a device you use daily.
