Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 is now rolling out to participating Pixels
Google launched the The first QPR2 beta Last month, participating Pixel owners were allowed to test upcoming “Pixel Drop” features before releasing them in a future OTA update. This week, Google is rolling out the latest beta version with bug fixes, new emojis, and other tweaks. Pixels dating back to Google Pixel 4a are eligible to participate in this trial round.
New OS tweaks included in QPR2 Beta 2 include the latest Unicode 15.0 with a few new emojis and there’s a new Google Home icon under the device controls. Meanwhile, the effect of the lava lamp on the media player is no longer present.
The bug that caused the system UI to crash sometimes has been addressed in this release. A bug causing the camcorder to remain stuck in slow motion mode after switching back to normal video mode has also been fixed.
Please be aware that there are already some known issues with the latest version of QPR2, as would be expected from any beta of any operating system. Recent apps have been known to freeze when switching device orientation while in this window. You may experience a Settings app crash after entering and exiting PiP (Picture-in-Picture) mode after changing the screen orientation. Finally, the system UI is prone to crashing with a “null pointer exception”.
The next Pixel feature drop is scheduled to arrive at the beginning of March. Interested Pixel owners should head over to Google Android Beta landing page. Head to the source link to see the QPR2 Beta2 release notes.
