Not all Pixel users will get this feature, including those that might be using any of the devices mentioned above. The update in focus on this article is only available to those that installed the Beta testing update. So if you aren’t a Beta tester, you will not get this update until it is ready for a stable release.

Here is everything new with the Android 13 QPR3 Beta 2.1 update

This new Beta update brings improvements to certain Google Pixel devices. If you are a Beta tester using any device from the Pixel 4a to the 7 Pro, you can benefit from this update. Older Pixel devices won’t get this update, since Google has stopped offering updates to those devices.


By improving the modem on these devices, Google is stepping up their internet connection speed. Beta testers with these devices will be able to enjoy faster internet connectivity. They might enjoy this alone for a while until Google rolls out this update to Pixel users that aren’t on the beta program.

If you want to get this improvement before the stable release, you will need to join the beta program. To do that, simply click on this link and follow the guidelines to join the program. After that, head over to your device settings and then to ‘System’ to install the beta system update.

It is important to note that beta testing updates aren’t always stable, as there might be a few issues. Once you have installed the beta update, there is no going back. Any attempt to uninstall the beta update will completely wipe out your device’s memory.

So before you rush to install the Android 13 QPR3 Beta 2.1 update, weigh your options. You can always wait for the features packed in the update to roll out globally before you access them. The date for the stable release of this beta update isn’t available, but it might come with future security updates.
