It has been a while since Google rolled out the beta updates of Android 13 to Pixel smartphones. A few weeks back, Google released Android 13 Beta 4.1 to fix the last-minute bugs. It has already achieved platform stability in the Beta 3 update, and Google has finally rolled out the stable Android 13 update for the Google Pixel smartphones. The stable Android is also up in Android Open-Source Project (ASOP) along with Pixel smartphones. The announcement of a stable Android 13 update came through a blog post.
The update is live for smartphones starting from Google Pixel 4. That said, it is available for Pixel 4 and 4 XL, Pixel 4a and 4a (5G), Pixel 5 and 5a 4, Pixel 6 and 6 Pro and Pixel 6a. If you haven’t received the OTA notification, you can head to Settings and check for updates. The Android beta update users should exit from the programme after receiving the stable update.
Major Android 13 features include increased customization options for Material You, seamless QR code scanning functionality, Bluetooth LE Audio support, Spatial Audio capabilities, integrated Fast Pair support, copy/paste between phones and tablets and much more. Google also adds an option for setting a different language for specific apps. The permission for apps to the library can be set for specific folders only.
