About Android 13 QPR1​

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 QPR1 builds on the updates in the Android 13 release and includes the next round of refinements such as bug fixes and improvements to stability and performance.

"Android 13 QPR1 beta is now available and offers Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs) for the current stable platform that include feature drops, bug fixes, and performance improvements ahead of the public release schedule."

Don't see downloads for the factory images yet, though.

@roirraW "edor" ehT Wasn't sure if you were going to create another thread for this (I think you mentioned that you may do that) or use your old thread (I was too lazy to find it 🙃), so I just posted it here.


What's new?​

Android 13 QPR1 beta is now available and offers Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs) for the current stable platform that include feature drops, bug fixes, and performance improvements ahead of the public release schedule.

Previously enrolled?​

If you were previously enrolled in the Android 13 Beta Program and have not opted out of the beta program, your eligible device(s) will automatically continue to receive the next Android 13 QPR1 beta updates.

You only have a short window to opt out of the Android Beta Program now without data loss

If you have already updated, leaving the program will result in a wipe and your next opportunity to exit without losing data will be in December after the stable launch of Android 13 QPR1.

Google has released Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1​

Although Google has made Android 13 official and rolled it out to Pixel devices, that doesn’t mean the work stops there. While the release is complete, there could be many different bugs and small issues within the OS that need to be fixed. This is where the Quarterly Platform Release (QPR) comes into play, allowing those in the beta program early access to fixes and improvements. Google has now announced the release of Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1.
The update is now live and available for supported Pixel devices like the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, and Pixel 6 devices. As mentioned before, QPR releases offer improvements or enhancements to Android that are not available to the public yet. For the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 1 release, you can check below for the specific issues that were addressed.

Developer-reported issues:​

  • Fixed an issue for some devices that mistakenly caused a user’s emergency contact to be dialed from the lock screen when the device was in their pocket.

Other resolved issues:​

  • Fixed various issues for Pixel 6a devices that made it difficult for users to unlock their device or to set up Fingerprint Unlock.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the system UI to crash in certain cases, such as gesturing from the edge of the screen to go back.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the 5G icon to be displayed instead of the 5G UW icon, even when the affected device was already successfully connected to a 5G UW network.
If you want to experience these changes before they roll out in official releases, you can enroll in the beta program for your supported device. If you were previously enrolled in the Android 13 beta, you should still be enrolled to receive QPR updates. By enrolling, you can give feedback to the developers and help identify potential issues that might arrive with the QPR release. You can do this by using the Issue Tracker. If you are not, you can sign up by visiting the Android beta website, which is in the source link.
When you sign in with your Google account, you will see all eligible devices for the program. If you choose to opt into the program with an eligible device, you will be asked to accept the terms and conditions. You will also have the option of receiving emails about the program and also declaring yourself as a developer. Furthermore, you can join the official Reddit group to share your thoughts or problems with regard to the latest updates. You can also manually download the installation here.
While discovering new features is exciting, please note that this is a beta, so there could be issues that you encounter while using your device. If the phone is your daily, it might not be the best idea to enroll in the program. While you can revert back to a stable version of Android if you opt out, it will require you to wipe your device and start fresh.

Android 13 inches closer to public release as final beta rolls out for Pixels​

Android 13 is just around the corner, as Google has just announced that the final beta version of the next major Android platform is finally here. There aren’t any new features that Google has highlighted, but this build is particularly special — Android 13 Beta 4 is the release candidate build for both Google Pixel devices and the Android Emulator. That means it primarily packs bug fixes and other polishes, though we imagine there’ll be some changes under the hood that haven’t been highlighted.

When will Android 13 release?​

android-13-release-timeline-1024x234.png

For Android updates, Google typically reveals a “platform stability” milestone so that developers can know when Google intends on delivering the final SDK/NDK APIs, along with final internal APIs and app-facing system behaviors. Android 13 Beta 3 brought us to platform stability, bringing us on track for a stable public release very soon. For context, Android 12 hit platform stability in August of 2021, and the final version was released in October of that year. This release is a release candidate build, meaning that it should be fairly stable if you can’t wait to try it out.

What’s new in Android 13 Beta 4?​

To be honest, there’s nothing surface level that Google has highlighted. The company says that this build gives developers “everything you need to complete your testing”. It’s primarily for bug fixing and software polishing, and while you may notice stability improvements, it’s unlikely that there’s any major that will have changed. Google says developers should, in particular, prepare for the following changes:
  • Runtime permission for notifications: The latest version of Android introduces a new runtime permission for sending notifications from an app. Make sure you understand how the new permission works, and plan on targeting Android 13 (API 33) as soon as possible. More here.
  • Clipboard preview: Make sure your app hides sensitive data in Android 13’s new clipboard preview, such as passwords or credit card information. More here.
  • JobScheduler prefetch: JobScheduler now tries to anticipate the next time your app will be launched and will run any associated prefetch jobs ahead of that time. If you use prefetch jobs, test that they are working as expected. More here.
Google also announced that information about the final release of Android 13 will be available “in the weeks ahead”.

How to download and install Android 13 Beta 4 on your Google Pixel device​

You can easily download Android 13 Beta 4 for your Pixel devices and follow our guide on how to install Android 13 to set it up. Google is officially releasing this beta update for the Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6, Pixel 5a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 4a, Pixel 4 XL, or Pixel 4. You can use the 64-bit system images with the Android Emulator in Android Studio, and you can also use a GSI too.

Yet another Beta of 13, Beta 3.3:

Google rolls out Android 13 Beta 3.3 with a bunch of bug fixes​

The beta branch of Android 13 just picked up a new bug-squashing update. Following in the footsteps of Android 13 Beta 3’s earlier incremental updates, this new release fixes a whole bunch of issues, including slow UI rendering, inability to connect to a Wi-Fi network, system UI crashes, and a few other problems.
The build number of Android 13 Beta 3.3 is TPB3.220617.002. There is no change in the security patch level, though, hence it’s still June 2022 on this release. You can find the full list of published fixes in this update below:
  • Fixed an issue with the Pixel launcher where if the Always show keyboard option was enabled for the app drawer, then when the user closed the app drawer and opened an app folder on the Home screen, the keyboard was erroneously shown as well. (Issue #236584457)
  • Fixed an issue where in some cases, such as gesturing to go back, the system UI crashed. (Issue #236558007)

  • Fixed a kernel issue with lib/list_debug.c that caused a kernel panic in certain cases on some devices.
  • Fixed an issue with the Connectivity Thermal Power Manager that caused slow UI rendering, unresponsiveness in apps, and poor battery performance in some cases.
Apart from the aforementioned bug fixes, the update also bumps the Google Play services version from 22.18.19 to 22.21.16.

Android 13 Beta 3.3 brings the new Android 13 easter egg​

After releasing Android 13 Beta 3.2 earlier this month, Google rolled out another beta build to the Pixel lineup this week. The latest release, Android 13 Beta 3.3, addressed several bugs, including slow UI rendering, inability to connect to a Wi-Fi network, system UI crashes, and more. While Google’s official changelog did not highlight any other changes, recent reports suggest that the update also includes the Android 13 easter egg.
If you’ve just updated your Pixel device to Android 13 Beta 3.3, you can now access the Android 13 easter egg on your phone. To do so, head over to the About Phone section in the device settings and tap on the Android version repeatedly. This should open up the same UI that you got with the Android 12 easter egg. If you move the clock hands to the 1 o’clock position, the Android 13 logo will pop up on the clock face with the Material You Dynamic Color bubbles in the background. But that’s not all.


If you tap and hold the bubbles, they’ll change into emoji. You can then long-press the emoji to cycle through fourteen thematic sets. These include: Fruit, Cat faces, Regular faces, Expressive (eye) faces, Melting face, Hearts/love, Outer space, Moon, Aquatic life, Monkeys, Zodiac, Clocks, Flowers, and Turtle king.

At the moment, it isn’t clear whether Google plans to a new easter egg widget as it did with Android 12. We’ll make sure to let you know as soon as we have more details.
What do you think of the new Android 13 easter egg? Which one of the fourteen emoji sets is your favorite? Let us know in the comments section below.

Android 13 Beta 3.2 arrives with important bug fixes​

Android 13 is almost here, and the most recent beta update, Beta 3, arrived bringing finalized APIs. We’ve already had one hotfix update arrive since then, and now Google is in with a second one for you to download and install on your Google Pixel. This update packs a ton of major bug fixes that you might want to install as soon as you can!

When will Android 13 release?​

android-13-release-timeline-1024x234.png

For Android updates, Google typically reveals a “platform stability” milestone so that developers can know when Google intends on delivering the final SDK/NDK APIs, along with final internal APIs and app-facing system behaviors. Google reached platform stability with the Beta 3 update, and there are several weeks at minimum planned before the official release. Android 12 hit platform stability in August of 2021 and the final version was released in October of that year. Google has released more details about the release timeline that you can check out.

What’s changed in Android 13 Beta 3.2?​

The fixes are as follows:
  • Fixed an issue where the back gesture wasn’t working in some apps.
  • Fixed an issue where the At a glance settings page would collapse inconsistently when scrolling.
  • Fixed an issue where some apps would crash instantly on opening.
  • Fixed an issue where the microphone would turn on and off unexpectedly during unrelated use of the device.
  • Fixed an issue where the Google Photos app would crash frequently.
Note that the other known issues listed for the Beta 3 release still apply to Beta 3.2, and it just seems to be the case that Google deemed these ones to be a higher priority and fixed them in between beta releases.
This is very much a minor release, but it’s good that Google is focusing on improving the beta experience for users that have opted to use it. These builds are designed to be used by users who want to try out the next version of Android, so while you shouldn’t use it on your daily driver, I’m sure plenty of users do. As a result, some of these are pretty problematic bugs that could have caused issues for people.

How to download and install Android 13 Beta 3.2 on your Google Pixel device​

You can easily download Android Developer Beta 2.1, and be sure to check out our guide on how to install Android 13 if you’re unsure of how to do so. If you already have a previous beta, then you will receive the update via OTA.
Google is officially releasing this beta update for the Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6, Pixel 5a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 4a, Pixel 4 XL, or Pixel 4. You can use the 64-bit system images with the Android Emulator in Android Studio too.

I didn't even know that Google was still using dessert names internally only, although the internal names didn't always match the officially released names when they had them. I had to Google to see if Tiramisu was official or not.

Yeh, it looks like Google had to submit to the public pressure to bring back the 😋 yummy name's.... for now! Stay tuned 😁 Cheers 🍻

Android 13 Developer Preview 2 arrives with notification permission requests and other changes​


February saw the release of the first Android 13 Developer Preview, and with it came the groundwork for the next iteration of the world’s biggest operating system. It brought along a number of changes that benefit developers and made improvements to privacy, Material You, language controls, and more. Now the company has announced the second developer preview, and it has some additional features and lots of improvements over the previous developer preview.
As the title “Developer Preview” implies, these releases are intended for usage by developers only. It’s for testing out new features and making sure that their apps work on updated devices as they’re supposed to. There are going to be bugs, there are going to be other problems, and Google will be pushing for feedback from developers over the coming months. If you don’t mind running into problems, then, by all means, give Android 13 a try. However, if you rely on your smartphone being consistently stable, then it might be worth waiting for the full Android 13 release that’s expected to launch in the latter half of the year.

The most notable features of Android 13 developer preview 2 include:
  • Notification permission requests
  • Developers can now downgrade their permissions
  • A ton of developer productivity improvements

When will Android 13 release?​

android-13-release-timeline-1024x234.png

For Android updates, Google typically reveals a “platform stability” milestone so that developers can know when Google intends on delivering the final SDK/NDK APIs, along with final internal APIs and app-facing system behaviors. Google intends on reaching platform stability in June 2022, with several weeks at minimum planned before the official release. Android 12 hit platform stability in August of 2021 and the final version was released in October of that year. Google has released more details about the release timeline that you can check out.


Privacy and security​

Google knows that users want an operating system that they can trust with their data. After all, smartphones have reached the point where they are effectively an extension of ourselves and our own lives in a lot of ways. We use them for storing important photos, having private conversations with friends and family, and carrying them with us day to day with the trust that microphones or cameras aren’t recording every interaction. We’ve seen changes for Android 13’s permissions system (amongst other changes) introduced in Android 13 Developer Preview 1, and Developer Preview 2 expands on that.

Notification permission​

Android 13 introduces a new runtime permission for sending notifications from an app: POST_NOTIFICATIONS. Apps that target Android 13 will now need to request permission from the user in order to push notifications. For apps that target Android 12 or lower, the system will handle the upgrade flow, but users will still see a system dialog that they need to accept or decline to allow for an app to push notifications. Google is encouraging developers to target Android 13 as early as possible and request the notification permission in their apps.

Developer downgrade permissions​

Sometimes when apps are updated, they don’t need older permissions that were once previously granted. Android 13 is introducing a new API that will allow developers to downgrade previously granted runtime permissions.

Safer exporting of context-registered receivers​

Android 12 introduced and required developers to declare the exportability of Intent receivers declared in the Android Manifest. Google is now asking developers to do the same for context-registered receivers by adding either the RECEIVER_EXPORTED or RECEIVER_NOT_EXPORTED flag when registering receivers for non-system sources. These won’t be required in Android 13 but are highly recommended for developers to enable.

Developer productivity​

Android wouldn’t be what it is without developers, and every platform update usually brings updates that make the lives of developers easier. Some updates definitely make it more difficult, but Google generally tries to streamline the development process of apps with every iteration.

Improved Japanese text wrapping​

Android 13 DP1 introduced improvements to TextView text wrapping, and now some improvements are being introduced specifically for Japanese text. This time around, TextViews can now wrap text by Bunsetsu (the smallest unit of words that sounds natural) or phrases — instead of by character — for more polished and readable Japanese applications. You’ll just need to enable android:lineBreakWordStyle=”phrase” with TextViews.

Japanese text wrapping with phrase style enabled (below) and without (above)

Improved line heights for non-Latin scripts​

In, Android 13 non-Latin scripts (such as Tamil, Burmese, Telugu, and Tibetan) are displayed by using a line height that’s adapted for each language. This prevents clipping and improves text positioning, and all an app needs to do to implement these improvements is target Android 13.
android 13 developer preview 2 text height

Text Conversion APIs​

People who speak languages like Japanese and Chinese use phonetic lettering input methods, which can slow down searching and features like auto-completion. In Android 13, apps can call the new text conversion API so users can find what they’re looking for faster and easier. Previously, searching in Japanese required the user to do the following:

  • Input Hiragana as the phonetic pronunciation of their search term (i.e. a place or an app name)
  • Use the keyboard to convert the Hiragana characters to Kanji,
  • Re-search using the Kanji characters
  • Get their search results.
With the new text conversion API, Japanese users can type in Hiragana and immediately see Kanji search results live, skipping the middle two steps.

Color vector fonts​

Android 13 adds rendering support for COLR version 1 fonts and updates the system emoji to the COLRv1 format. COLRv1 is a new and highly-compact font format that renders quickly and crisply at any size. For most apps, the system handles everything and COLRv1 just works. Google recommends testing emoji rendering if your app implements its own text rendering and uses the system fonts. You can read more about COLRv1 in the Chrome announcement when it was announced with Chrome OS 98.

Bluetooth LE Audio​

Bluetooth Low Energy Audio is, as the name suggests, a low-energy way to transmit audio over Bluetooth. Android 13 brings official support for it.

MIDI 2.0​

Android 13 also adds support for the new MIDI 2.0 standard, including the ability to connect MIDI 2.0 hardware through USB. MIDI 2.0 offers improvements such as increased resolution for controllers, better support for non-Western intonation, and more expressive performance using per-note controllers.


How to download and install Android 13 Developer Preview 2 on your Google Pixel device​

You can easily download Android Developer Preview 2, and be sure to check out our guide on how to install Android 13 if you’re unsure of how to do so.
Google is officially releasing this developer preview update for the Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6, Pixel 5a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 4a, Pixel 4 XL, or Pixel 4. You can use the 64-bit system images with the Android Emulator in Android Studio, and you can also use a GSI too.

Android 13 Developer Preview 2 brings the app drawer to the taskbar​


Android 13 Developer Preview 2 was just released on Thursday, with another round of new features and changes leading up to the final release of Android 13 later this year. Google highlighted some of the changes in the new build when it arrived, but it seems there’s another helpful improvement: an app drawer in the taskbar on large screen devices.
The recent Android 12L update (also known as Android 12.1) adds a taskbar to the bottom of some large-screen devices, including some tablets and foldable phones, which is still present in Android 13. However, as Esper’s Mishaal Rahman pointed out in a tweet, there’s now an additional icon in the taskbar that opens the app drawer.

Credit: Mishaal Rahman
The taskbar opened from the app drawer might not be as full-featured as the the drawer in your home screen launcher of choice — for example, there doesn’t appear to be a search bar right now. Still, it will give you the option of opening another new application without going back to the home screen or asking Google Assistant, similar to the Edge panel on Galaxy phones and other similar custom features. This also brings taskbar-equipped Android closer in functionality to Windows or Chrome OS, both of which organize all your apps in a button accessible from the taskbar.



Android 13 Developer Preview 2 also adds runtime permissions for app notifications, improved Japanese text wrapping, a new Text Conversion API for languages like Japanese, COLR fonts, MIDI 2.0, Bluetooth LE Audio, and other changes. Check out our main Android 13 Developer Preview 2 coverage for more information and the download links for Pixel devices.
Google is expected to release the first Android 13 Beta sometime in April, with a stable release arriving sometime after July. Android 12 arrived in October of last year, and Android 11 was released in September 2020, so the schedule for Android 13 will likely follow the same pattern.

Anyone give this a go yet?
Yes, and rooted. Seems to be working fine so far, but I've only been on it for about a half hour. Don't see any major issues yet. Only thing is that I can't access recents with Nova Launcher from the home screen, I have to be in settings or an app. Pixel launcher works fine.

Just clarifying.. I think I read someone ota'd dp1 on their phone , but many others bricked theirs due to not having unlocked bootloader. This is still not loadable if you are carrier/bootloader locked, right?

This includes the 12L/QPR modem but I need to poke around. Would go a long way to helping me confirm that even if a modem has the same major version, different branches can have different functionality and minor versions.

If you have an unlocked bootloader but actually Opt into the Beta through Google's site at https://www.google.com/android/beta then I believe any phone should be able to get it.

Big However, though - not recommended to do that with a locked bootloader since if it doesn't work for you, there's no way to flash back to Stable. You have to stick with the DP/Beta ride until it's Stable.

You can opt-out of the Beta, but that would normally either factory reset your device when it flashes your device back to Stable, but I seem to recall for those with a locked bootloader that they couldn't find a way back to Stable even considering that caveat.

What @DoobyDroid says below:

I haven't heard of a custom DP1, but there have certainly been stranger things. With an unlocked bootloader, you should be able to just flash the full factory image after removing the -w from the flash-all.bat so it doesn't wipe your device.

Or did you mean with a locked bootloader?

I hear different things.. Can I not just install ota like normal?
That I can't answer, since I never use the OTA method - I have a locked bootloader and always flash the full factory image after modifying the batch file so that it doesn't wipe my phone.

Maybe that's what you're talking about modifying? Not really a custom DP, just extracting it and modifying the batch file before running it.

Good luck, whatever you do.

    Awesome. Switched to qpr1 beta 3 a few days after it came out and was a little buggier than I expected it would be... Mainly camera/media related... Looks like a lot of these fixes listed in the minor update should address them.

    About Android 13 QPR1​

    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 QPR1 builds on the updates in the Android 13 release and includes the next round of refinements such as bug fixes and improvements to stability and performance.

    Google rolls out Android 13 Beta 3.3 with a bunch of bug fixes​

    The beta branch of Android 13 just picked up a new bug-squashing update. Following in the footsteps of Android 13 Beta 3’s earlier incremental updates, this new release fixes a whole bunch of issues, including slow UI rendering, inability to connect to a Wi-Fi network, system UI crashes, and a few other problems.
    The build number of Android 13 Beta 3.3 is TPB3.220617.002. There is no change in the security patch level, though, hence it’s still June 2022 on this release. You can find the full list of published fixes in this update below:
    • Fixed an issue with the Pixel launcher where if the Always show keyboard option was enabled for the app drawer, then when the user closed the app drawer and opened an app folder on the Home screen, the keyboard was erroneously shown as well. (Issue #236584457)
    • Fixed an issue where in some cases, such as gesturing to go back, the system UI crashed. (Issue #236558007)
    • Fixed an issue where devices couldn’t connect to a WiFi network in some cases even when the network was available and the signal strength was good. (Issue #236617510)
    • Fixed an issue where the BluetoothManagerService continued to try and bind to the TbsService even when bluetooth.profile.ccp.server.enabled was false, leading to slow performance and cold starts for apps.
    • Fixed an issue where in some cases after a device was plugged in to charge (for example, overnight), the device would become unresponsive until it was rebooted.
    • Fixed a kernel issue with lib/list_debug.c that caused a kernel panic in certain cases on some devices.
    • Fixed an issue with the Connectivity Thermal Power Manager that caused slow UI rendering, unresponsiveness in apps, and poor battery performance in some cases.
    Apart from the aforementioned bug fixes, the update also bumps the Google Play services version from 22.18.19 to 22.21.16.
    In case your Google Pixel device is already enrolled in the Android 13 beta program, you will automatically receive an over-the-air update to Beta 3.3. You can also download the full OTA or the factory image from the link below if you want to manually upgrade to the latest beta release.

    All, this is not a thread for opinions about the Pixel 6/Pro in general, nor is it a thread made for rants. Opinions specifically about Android 13 are fine. I know there have been a few posts that have nothing specific to do with Android 13 and I've let it go. If anyone wants to make posts that don't address anything specifically about Android 13, there are many, many threads in this section where that has taken place.

    I know, because I used to read every post in this section but now I avoid the threads that contain those kinds of posts, and I'd like to not see them here in this thread. Any further posts of those types will be deleted as off-topic.

    I think Magisk removed the need to pass the vbmeta disable verity/verification flag with Canary 24303. Here's a quote related to a kernel issue from yujincheng08 (LoveSy):

    "Let me clarify the things.
    Magisk was used to modify the fstab to inject Magisk components, and in the meantime, Magisk stipped avb_key and avb flags for all partitions. So, that 24300 works is just a side effect and has no insurance.
    Now Magisk changed its way of injecting Magisk components, and it will no longer modify the fstab, and the side effect was thus gone together with the refactorization. Some configurations that rely on the fact that Magisk will strip those verification flags will no longer work, and that's expected. Users should disable the verification themselves since they are expected to have unlocked bootloaders."

    This all relates to problems with custom kernels and Magisk, but may have further implications for us. Check out more in the issue here..

    Good spot. Seeing as how that's now intended behaviour, I guess wiping and disabling verification is all our best moves from here.

    I'll take this moment to suggest investing in Swift Backup and setting up an automatic backup that runs periodically, so long as you have root it makes wiping pretty much a non-issue.
