If you change the color option in display settings from adaptive to natural, it seems to go back to what it was before. Although, I kind of like the new look.

I tried this and had no luck. Was still super dark after swapping color profiles and then returning to Adaptive mode.

the colours on the adaptive display setting on this beta are disgusting.
it's so dark. I was watching a dark YouTube video and I couldn't see anything, it just looked black. when I switch to natural the entire thing lit up and looks 100% better.
I'm bummed that they changed the adaptive display setting so drastically. honestly it looks broken, like none of these colours are correct at all and it's way too dark. hopefully it gets fixed soon...

Mine is the opposite. Mine is actually brighter in adaptive and clearer. I also have it on high resolution too. 1440p and this latest beta brightened everything up and made it look crisper and cleaner. Weird that the update is affecting people differently. Are you running any mods that affect display? I do have a few that are display based. Repainter is one and I use automatic dark mode. Just curious.

no I don't have any mods at all, all stock.
I've got high refresh and resolution as well.
it honestly looks so bad it has to be a bug. it looks like some high contrast accessibility setting or something.
I've had to switch to natural and on natural in my opinion all the colours look super washed out. I was really happy with the display settings before this beta now it's really awful.
this weekend I may go back to the main release, I just can't be stuffed wiping the phone lol

Try resetting the adaptive brightness. Clear Device Health services storage. When you get there click manage and reset adaptive brightness. That may help.

Hi guys!
Is there anything to have in mind when you join beta releases?
Do I have to wipe? Do any apps stop working? Like Banking apps, Google Pay or somethings like these?
I have so bad battery draining that I now go through all options I may have to get a new software release without setting up my phone again :)

All of your banking could not work at all. Betas don't pass CTS check. Just saying. Best thing to do on a battery drain, is not chase it charging. Let it die. Then charge it completely while powered off. It's sometimes a pain. But it will reset your battery stats in the phone and if anything is hanging in the background, it will clear it.

Release notes​

bookmark

About Android 13 QPR3​

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 QPR3 builds on the updates in Android 13 QPR2 and the initial Android 13 release and includes the next round of refinements such as bug fixes and improvements to stability and performance.

How to get QPR3 Beta 2​

You can install Android 13 QPR3 Beta 2 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
See Get Android 13 QPR beta builds for details on how to get started.

General advisories​

Be aware of these general advisories about the release:
  • This release might have various stability, battery, or performance issues.
  • For users with accessibility needs, this release might not be appropriate for daily use.
  • 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.

Get support​

Two primary support channels are available to you when developing and testing with Android 13 QPR3. The channel you should use to get support depends on where you are encountering your issue.
  • Support for device-specific issues, system issues, and issues with Google apps: Use the Issue Tracker to create new issues and to view and track issues that you and other developers have submitted.
    Before creating your own issue, check the known issues listed on this page and search the lists of top open issues and recently created issues to see if someone else has already reported it. You can subscribe and vote for an issue by clicking star this issue.
    See Where to report issues to find an issue template that best matches the type of issue that you are encountering.
  • Support for issues with other apps: Contact the app developer directly.
To discuss issues or ideas with other developers working with the Android 13 QPR Beta, join the android_beta community on Reddit.

    This build resolved an issue I was having where WIRED ear pods would NOT work properly. 👍

    I still see the proposal to update to android 14 in the update page

    For Chase, here's how I got it to work on my P6 previously. There's an old thread where someone installed a downgraded version, but I didn't need to do that:

    I force stopped the app and cleared cache/data. I then enabled airplane mode, went into the Chase app and entered my credentials. I hit the fingerprint option and hit "sign on." I got the error saying no data connection available. I reenabled data and signed on.

    This unfortunately did not work for me. I pass safetynet and have magisk hidden as well as Chase on the deny list with all the ticks selected.

    On my pristine (bootloader hasn't been touched) 7 Pro, I pass basic integrity and CTS and on the Play Integrity API Checker, I pass MEETS_DEVICE_INTEGRITY as well as MEETS_BASIC_INTEGRITY but fail MEETS_STRONG_INTEGRITY.

    My Google Pay still works and that's all I cared about.

    I also checked and the Chase app is allowing me to use my credit card rewards so it's not detecting any issues it cares about either.

    Yep I can corroborate, we're still in the clear for bypassing. :)

    The only thing that the Chase app won't do while rooted (and methods to fool it are implemented) is allow you to set up using a fingerprint in the app, but you can do so while temporarily not rooted (which I plan to do when the next Stable update drops if I remember), and it'll stick when you re-root. Yes, it's in my DenyList with no help for that. 😜🤣

    I accidentally wiped my phone last week, and I just set up the Chase app yesterday. I found it very interesting that I was even able to set up the fingerprint reader with the app while rooted (Chase in DenyList, as usual) and on Displax' USNF 2.40 Mod 1.2.

    Pixel 7 Pro [Cheetah] QPR Betas


    QPR stands for "Quarterly Platform Release". Android 13 QPR2 went final in March 2023. See main thread here for final/non-beta releases.

    You can officially opt into the Android Beta Program there, or use the factory image or OTA below. You can no longer manually opt into the QPR3 Beta program - only the Android 14 Beta is offered to opt into:
    I'm only being allowed to Opt into the Android 14 beta program. I want to enroll in the Android 13 QPR Beta program instead. Any idea how?
    I don't know for sure, but I suspect that no one can opt into the QPR3 Beta program any longer.

    Even Google's QPR3 Beta release page:
    which has a link:

    and leads to:
    the Enroll in Android 13 Beta for Pixel button there still leads to:
    which only mentions Android 14 Beta.

    So I think your only choice if you want to try QPR3 Beta is to have an unlocked bootloader and flash the factory image, or I think it's possible to sideload the OTA without unlocking the bootloader - but it's highly discouraged to try a Beta with a locked bootloader, as you'll be locked into the Beta program (via manual OTA sideloads) until it goes final, and you'll have no choice but to deal with the issues.




    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):
