- The first beta of QPR3 is being released today.
- This is the last cycle of the Android 13 beta before the launch of Android 14.
- The update will be downloaded automatically for members of the Beta Program.
On Monday, Google released the stable build of Android 13 QPR2. Now Google is moving forward with a new beta for the next and final Android 13 Quarterly Update – QPR3.
If you’re part of the Google beta program, you may have noticed that you haven’t received the stable version of QPR2. If you’re wondering why you skipped your phone, it’s because the tech giant changed its process. Google announced last week in a Reddit post that members of the Beta program will not get the stable version of QPR2, and will instead move directly to the next beta. It wasn’t clear if this was a permanent software change or if it was just a change for the QPR2 update.
The update should download automatically if you are a member of the Beta Program, so you do not have to do anything. The beta version brings some fixes, but has some known issues including:
- Fixed the color of the clock text on the lock screen.
- Bluetooth audio fix.
- Fix for the fingerprint icon.
- Fix for live wallpapers.
- Fixes an issue where widgets, app icon positions, and other configurable options on the home screen were reset after installing an OTA update.
- Fixes an issue that caused the device to be unregistered from Face Unlock after installing an OTA update.
Known issues in QPR3 Beta 1:
- If the user tries to open the camera by pressing the power button twice, the camera displays a black screen instead.
- In some cases, when a work profile is turned on or off, the device restarts instead.
- The recent apps menu sometimes becomes unresponsive if the screen orientation is changed while the menu is open.
