Google has released the third build for Android 13 Beta 3. In order to address the major fixes for beta testers, Google had to release not one or two, but three builds of this month’s beta.
The development was general via a Reddit post announcing the release of Android 13 Beta 3.3. There are no new features included in the third build, indicating Google’s efforts to fix bugs from previous builds of Android 13 Beta 3.
According to the post, the latest release resolved the conflict between the launcher and the keyboard, and fixed a bug where actions like swiping “back” were causing the UI to crash. These issues have made using the beta version of the app less than ideal.
We fixed an issue that prevented the Pixels from connecting to known Wi-Fi networks, and another that caused the device to hang on connection and have to restart.
In addition, “Connection Thermal Power Management” was improved, which was responsible for unstable operation and short battery life.
Considering that the June beta 3 was supposed to provide platform stability, which was not done right away, a lot of updates were released this month.
App developers are expected to begin completing compatibility testing for apps, SDKs, and libraries with this build.
Users who are already enrolled in the Android 13 beta will automatically receive an over-the-air (OTA) update to beta 3.3. Suitable devices to deploy include the Pixel 4, 4A, 5, 5A, 6, and 6 Pro series.
It may take up to 24 hours for the device to receive the OTA update. However, users can check for updates by going to Settings > System > System updates.
