Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 now rolling out to participating Pixels

Google released the first QPR2 beta last month. Participating Pixel owners can test the upcoming “Pixel Drop” feature before it’s released in his OTA update in the future. This week, Google will release the latest beta build with bug fixes, new emojis, and other tweaks. Pixels dating back to Google Pixel 4a are eligible to participate in this beta round.

New OS tweaks included in QPR2 Beta 2 include the latest Unicode 15.0 with some new emojis and a new Google Home icon under device controls. On the other hand, the media player lava lamp effect is gone.

A bug that was causing the system UI to occasionally crash has been addressed in this build. A fix was also issued for a bug that caused the camcorder to remain in slow motion shooting mode after switching to normal video mode.

Please note that the latest QPR2 build actually has some known issues, as you would expect from a beta release of any OS. Modern apps are known to freeze when switching device orientations in this window. The Settings app may crash when entering and exiting PiP (Picture-in-Picture) mode after changing screen orientation. Finally, the system UI can crash due to a “null pointer exception”.

The next Pixel feature addition is scheduled for early March. Interested Pixel owners should visit Google’s Android beta landing page. Go to the source link to read the QPR2 Beta2 release notes.
