Developer issues

  • Fixed an issue for some devices that mistakenly caused a user’s emergency contact to be dialed from the lock screen when the device was in their pocket.

Other issues

  • Fixed various issues for Pixel 6a devices that made it difficult for users to unlock their device or to set up Fingerprint Unlock.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the system UI to crash in certain cases, such as gesturing from the edge of the screen to go back.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the 5G icon to be displayed instead of the 5G UW icon, even when the affected device was already successfully connected to a 5G UW network.

If you own a beta-eligible Google Pixel smartphone, you can experience the changes before its official release. The users who were enrolled in the Android 13 beta will still be able to receive QPR updates. In another case, sign up by visiting the Android beta website. Therein, you can see a list of eligible devices that can choose to opt into the program.

To save yourself from the registration trouble, you can simply visit our Telegram channel and manually download the installation. As mentioned before, QPR is meant to address OS bugs, although it can still carry some glitches itself. The beta users can help identify potential issues that might restrain the user experience.

Lastly, keep in note that this is a beta update and it may carry some bugs. Therefore, we do not recommend you enroll your primary device in the program. Besides, you can also choose to get yourself out of the beta program. However, this will erase all your data.
