We are getting closer and closer to the Android 13 QPR3 update hitting all Pixel phones in June along with the next Pixel Feature Drop, so it only makes sense that Google would increase beta update releases with additional bug fixes before we get there. Today, they’ve done just that.
Google posted the Android 13 QPR3 Beta 3.2 update for Pixel phones with at least 5 noteworthy bug fixes. Google fixed a touch input issue, one that was causing WiFi calls to disconnect, another involving SIM card detection, and an issue that was causing dips in cellular connectivity speeds and reliability.
This new update is already live for the Pixel 4a and 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, and Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
