Google Pixel phone owners who are part of the Android Beta Program for Android 13 QPR3 picked up a beta 2 update last week. It looks like Google wanted a quick fix for something, as Android 13 QPR3 beta 2.1 is already here.
If you own a Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, or Pixel 7 Pro, this update is headed your way right now.
What’s new in Android 13 QPR3 beta 2.1?
Release Date: April 6, 2023
Security patch level: March 2023
Google Play Services: 23.11.15
The only official change Google has listed for this “minor update” is a “modem update”. And that’s all they say about it. You have to wonder if it has to do with these Exynos modem vulnerabilities, though these issues were only present on the Pixel 6 and up.

Below, we have links to factory images and OTA files for people to update the old school way, but you don’t have to go that route to update. You can always enroll in the Android Beta Program (here) and get the update over-the-air that way. Do this for those who would rather avoid a command prompt and the adb command. Google should start pushing the update through the Android beta program soon.
Get it later.
