How to join the Android 13 QPR2 Beta program on your compatible Pixel phone
Once the first beta version of Android 13 QPR2 is released, you will go to Settings > System > System update and install it. Once you download the beta, you won’t be able to leave the beta program and go back to the stable version of Android 13 without having to wipe your phone until March 6, so keep that in mind.
Now, if you want to continue with the beta program and you haven’t left it yet, you can just do nothing and you’ll receive the update to Android 13 QPR2 Beta 1 as soon as it arrives next week. Please keep in mind that beta software is unstable and some features and applications you need to run may not work with the beta version installed. Also, you may experience a drop in battery life while running the beta. So make sure running the beta is worth it before signing up.
Here are some of the new features for some Pixel models found in the December Drop feature
If for some reason you haven’t installed the December Quarterly Pixel Feature Drop on your eligible Pixel phone, check for the update at Settings > System > System update. The update includes Clear Calling (Pixel 7 series only) which removes distracting background noise for much clearer phone calls. With new speaker tags, you’ll know who said what when you listen to meetings you’ve recorded using the Recorder app.
The Pixel 6 and 7 lines (Pixel 6a not included) can now monitor how often you cough or snore while you sleep, and the Pixel 6 and 7 lines (again, not the Pixel 6a) will now translate your texts in five additional languages (Arabic, Danish, Vietnamese, Swedish and Persian). This means that users can translate text messages on compatible Pixel models into one of 21 different languages. And next month (January 2023), those who use Pixel Buds Pro with the Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7, or Pixel 7 Pro will be able to hear surround sound audio when Spatial Audio is enabled. These are just the highlights.
What will the March Quarterly Pixel Drop feature bring? For now, we can only dream.
