Android 13 QPR2 Beta 3 now available for Pixel phones

Android 13 QPR2 Beta 3 is rolling out today as what should be the last major preview before the stable launch in March.

In particular, it still features the January 2023 security patch, which could be fixed by an update (such as a 3.1 beta) later. The following issues have been resolved with Beta 3 (T2B3.230109.002):

Issues reported by developers and users

Fixed an issue where notifications in a notification group were sometimes displayed with straight corners instead of rounded corners. (Issue #264287776, Issue #265529116) Fixed an issue where the message in the notification shade that indicates an active VPN connection overlapped with the message on apps with active foreground services. (Issue #266075977) Fixed an issue where the overflow menu was not accessible when editing quick settings tiles. (Issue #263484657) Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause a vibration-enabled device to vibrate too long after receiving a notification. (Number #239676913)

Other fixed issues

Fixed an issue that sometimes caused messaging apps to crash or fail to send notifications. Fixed a GPU issue that prevented applications from using certain visual effects. Fixed an issue where quick settings tiles for a work profile were not added after setting up a new device. Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the Pixel launcher to crash when using the search bar in the app drawer. Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented a device from being unlocked using a pattern after activating the Google Assistant. Fixed an issue in the system process that sometimes caused crashes. Fixed an issue with the Pixel launcher that prevented Chinese text input from being recognized when typing in the app drawer search bar. Fixed an issue where when entering and exiting Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode from an app after changing the screen orientation, the System Settings app would crash with a “Settings are stopping” message, then the System Settings app could not be opened. Fixed an issue with the System UI that sometimes caused it to crash due to a null pointer exception.
