Want to update to this latest QPR3 Beta 2.1 build? Google has posted factory images, so you can go that route if you need to. However, signing up for the Android Beta Program is going to be the easiest way to update. You can sign-up here. If you are already enrolled, head into Settings > System > System updates to check for the update.
