After testing Android 13 Beta builds for a number of months, our testing interval concluded yesterday with the discharge of the December Android replace for Pixel telephones. However now that we’re finished with this beta program, we’ve got a few issues to contemplate going ahead: Can we keep within the Android Beta program and proceed to check new stuff, or will we go away and stay secure?

Now that we’re finished with QPR1, it is time to begin wanting in the direction of Android 13 QPR2. And since QPR2 may also be a large launch, Google may also allow us to check it in beta.
