I haven't and don't want to opt-out of the beta program, but my phone is notifying me of a tiny 2.94 MB OTA update it wants to still do, which I guess is for any minor changes they have made to bring it to a stable release?

The only problem is that I have been manually flashing my device due to then rooting with Magisk so am thus unable to do this OTA update (it outright fails to install), so I guess I just manually install the new build and not force a wipe.

I'm on the same boat so I guess we have to wait until the next (or latest) QPR is out?

You should wait until we get the stable QPR1 build tomorrow, install that, then opt out. If you opt out before that you will have to wipe. If you wait until after installing the stable QPR1 build tomorrow you can opt out after that (for a short time period) without having to wipe.

From the A13 Beta program FAQ:

Note: During the beta program’s release cycle, there will be stable releases to the public (the official platform release followed by Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs)). When you apply the stable release update for the version you’re beta testing, you can opt out without a data wipe for a limited time until you apply the next beta update

Just to clarify:

When you say that you can opt out AFTER installing the QPR stable, you mean that we can manually flash/sideload that QPR stable build, it will boot, and then we can opt out?

My situation: I am currently on the latest QPR beta release, locked bootloader. If I, right now, opt out of beta I will receive that QPR stable build in the updater. In this case, after it finishes installing, it will wipe all my data on the next reboot? So basically I have no choice but to stay on beta right now if I don't want to wipe my data. Am I correct?

If you are currently on the latest QPR1 beta, just wait to receive the OTA for the stable QPR1 (December) build. Install that (you won't have to wipe) and then opt out. If you opt out before installing the stable QPR1 build you will have to wipe.

If you want to continue with the beta program, just don't opt out and you'll receive the QPR2 betas, likely starting the next week.

Got it, thanks for the explanation

One thing I realised is that the whole part of opting-in/out is only good for people who use and are part of the program like Google intends for it, which is to only ever update their phone with OTA.

If you are manually flashing your phone (such in the case of rooting), then you can do whatever the hell you want (as is by design), where actually being part of the program or not doesn't seem to make any difference.

I had wondered if it would drop soon because a couple of hours ago, the text on the https://www.google.com/android/beta page changed back and forth between QPR1 and QPR2.

About Android 13 QPR2​

Following the stable release of Android 13 to AOSP, we continue to update the platform with fixes and improvements that are then rolled out to supported devices. These releases happen on a quarterly cadence through Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs), which are delivered both to AOSP and to Google Pixel devices as part of Feature Drops.
Although these updates don't include app-impacting API changes, we provide images of the latest QPR beta builds so you can test your app with these builds as needed.
Unlike developer previews and betas for unreleased versions of Android, these builds are suitable for general use. However, please review any known issues that are listed on this page.
Android 13 QPR2 builds on the updates in Android 13 QPR1 and the Android 13 initial release and includes the next round of refinements such as bug fixes and improvements to stability and performance.

    Be aware that the XDA app is not being actively developed, so your experience may vary. The best way to use XDA is generally via a browser...which is exactly how the app displays the site anyway
    Yes, I know. When QPR2 Beta 1 came out, many people, including myself, reported that the XDA app stopped working. I'm just reporting that it is now working again with QPR2 Beta 2.

    Free p7/p7p Google VPN is still broken. This is why iPhone users that tries Android keeps returning back to ios. Nothing ever gets fixed on time.
    Nobody forced you to flash a beta firmware. Stop crying.

    I don't plan on testing Betas of any sort, but feel free to use this thread for everything about the QPR Betas or major Android version betas for the Pixel 7 Pro. I'll update the information in the OP when necessary. See Post #2 in my main thread for general information (Unlocking Bootloader / Rooting / Updating | SafetyNet working again | ADB/Fastboot & Windows USB Drivers) but ask questions or make observations about all betas in this thread, please.

    Once a QPR or major Android version goes final, I'll take those discussions to my main thread.

    The Beta also introduces support for some new carriers, some of which are the first ones for some countries (Portugal, Lithuania, Finland, Estonia), this means 5G working out of the box aswell as proper LTE Aggregation combinations (VoLTE depends on another configuration so that could take some time):

    About Android 13 QPR2​

    Following the stable release of Android 13 to AOSP, we continue to update the platform with fixes and improvements that are then rolled out to supported devices. These releases happen on a quarterly cadence through Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs), which are delivered both to AOSP and to Google Pixel devices as part of Feature Drops.
    Although these updates don't include app-impacting API changes, we provide images of the latest QPR beta builds so you can test your app with these builds as needed.
    Unlike developer previews and betas for unreleased versions of Android, these builds are suitable for general use. However, please review any known issues that are listed on this page.
    Android 13 QPR2 builds on the updates in Android 13 QPR1 and the Android 13 initial release and includes the next round of refinements such as bug fixes and improvements to stability and performance.

    How to get QPR2 Beta 3​

    You can install Android 13 QPR2 Beta 3 on any of the following Google Pixel devices:
    • Pixel 4a and 4a (5G)
    • Pixel 5 and 5a
    • Pixel 6 and 6 Pro
    • Pixel 6a
    • Pixel 7 and 7 Pro

    General advisories​

    Be aware of these general advisories about the release:
    • This release might have various stability, battery, or performance issues.

    • Some apps might not function as expected when running on this release. This limitation includes Google's apps as well as other apps.
    • Android 13 QPR beta builds aren't Compatibility Test Suite (CTS)‑approved, but they have passed preliminary testing and provide a stable set of pre-release APIs for developers. Apps that depend on CTS-approved builds or use SafetyNet APIs might not work normally on Android 13 QPR beta builds.

    Are these generally safe? I know that there is no EDL recovery type of thing for Tensor Pixels so is it common that they get permanently bricked by these updates or going back to the non-beta?
    They're safe. I ran them throughout Android 12. There is a window where you can go back to stable without having to wipe. That occurs when they release the stable build of each QPR, in this case the stable build of QPR1, which should be in December. Once that stable build is released you can unenroll in the beta program without having to wipe, as long as you do it before they release QPR2 Beta 1.
