With one more beta release anticipated the following month, Android 13 QPR2 will be released in its stable form in March. Numerous cosmetic changes have already been made, and Google states that these “builds are acceptable for widespread use.” In our opinion, Beta 1’s (visual) edges were a little bit rougher, but not enough to affect usability. With the release of this new version, things ought to be better.
If you have the QPR2 Beta loaded, closing the programme will destroy your data, and the next time you can do so without losing anything will be in March after the stable launch.
Pixel phones have the Android Beta Feedback app, which may be used to report issues. The Android Beta community is on Reddit, and you can reach it from the app drawer or through Quick Settings to report bugs in the Google issue tracker.
Top issues that Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 has fixed:
The System UI bug that occasionally made the Home screen unresponsive has been fixed.
The Google Camera app had a bug that prevented it from returning to Normal video capture mode after switching to Slow Motion mode if the capture speed was modified from 1/8x to 1/4x while in Slow Motion mode.
Known problems with the Android Platform
When the screen orientation is altered while the list is active, the Recent applications list occasionally stops responding.
The system Settings app occasionally crashes with the message “Settings keeps halting” and cannot be launched when entering and leaving Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode from an app after adjusting the screen orientation.
The System UI may occasionally break due to a null pointer exception if there is a problem with it.
The Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro, as well as the Android Emulator, can all run Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 system images.
Most users will download Beta 2 (T2B2.221216.006) from the Android Beta Program website along with the January security patch. In the upcoming hours, an OTA update is anticipated.
