Google releases Beta 3.1 update for Android 13 QPR3 users: What’s new

Google runs a special program for its Pixel smartphones that aims to introduce new features and improvements, so users can enjoy their devices more comfortably. To do so, the company has introduced two QPR (Quarterly platform release) updates already. The third beta program is also running.

And continuing it, Google has released a new update as Android 13 QPR3 beta 3.1. Most probably, it will be the end of the Android 13 QPR beta 3 because the earlier beta program i.e., QPR3 beta 2, was completed in just two updates. And it is expected that it will be fully completed by June. The last software update for the Android 13 QPR program will be dropped on the first Monday of next month.
