Users of Google Pixel Devices, particularly those who are participating in the Android 13 Beta Program, receive useful updates in a timely manner. On January 10th, the Android 13 Quarterly Platform Release (QPR) 2 Beta 2 was made available for download. This was earlier in the month. The update corrected a few problems that had been occurring with the device. The subsequent update was supposed to go live during the first week of February; however, Google has released it a little bit earlier than was originally planned.
The 9-megabyte update included two critical bug fixes. The flaw that was preventing devices from connecting to 5G networks, even if there was one available, was one issue that needed to be fixed. The second problem that was addressed was an issue in which devices were unable to terminate an existing Bluetooth connection, even if it had been encrypted, even after receiving an instruction to stop the encryption layer for that connection. Every Pixel device that is eligible to participate in the Android 13 QPR Beta Program can now download the update, which carries the build number T2B2.221216.008. That includes Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro.
