The first Android 13 QPR3 beta update is only two weeks old and we’re already seeing an update to replace it. Google has just released Android 13 QPR3 beta 2 for your Pixel phones.
This latest Android 13 QPR3 update is available for the same devices, Pixel 4a and 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, and Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. You can get it in factory image and OTA form or you can sit back and wait for Google to push it to your device momentarily.
What’s New in Android 13 QPR3 Beta 2?
Release Date: March 29, 2023
Security patch level: March 2023
Google Play Services: 23.08.15
The only official change Google has listed involves adaptive charging. Google says the feature can now “automatically adjust to your charging needs using on-device signals.” It’s good to see this change confirmed after the internet noticed it earlier in the week.
Except for that one change, Google acknowledges that the bugs you encountered earlier are now fixed They took care of a volume panel flicker, a bug that caused the UI to get stuck in a blurry state, another bug in the notification shade, and a few more. You can see the full list here.

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.
