Factory images for Google Pixel

Following the stable release of Android 13 to AOSP, we continue to update the platform with fixes and improvements that are then rolled out to supported devices. These releases happen on a quarterly cadence through Quarterly Platform Releases (QPRs), which are delivered both to AOSP and to Google Pixel devices as part of Feature Drops.

Although these updates don't include app-impacting API changes, we provide images of the latest QPR beta builds so you can test your app with these builds as needed.

To find factory images for already-released, stable versions of the platform, see Factory Images for Nexus and Pixel Devices.

If you are a developer with a supported Google Pixel device, you can manually update that device to the latest build for testing and development. You'll need to do a full device reset, so make sure to back up your data first. Builds are only available for the following Pixel devices:

  • Pixel 4a and 4a (5G)
  • Pixel 5 and 5a
  • Pixel 6 and 6 Pro
  • Pixel 6a

After you've flashed a beta build to your Pixel device, your device is automatically enrolled in the Android Beta for Pixel program and offered continuous over-the-air (OTA) updates to the latest beta builds (including QPRs) until you choose to unenroll that device from the program. We also deliver flashable images at each milestone, so you can choose the approach that works best for your test environment.

Use the following links and instructions to update your supported device to the latest build. See Get Android 13 QPR beta builds for other ways to get QPR1 for testing and development.

Flash your device using Android Flash Tool

Android Flash Tool lets you securely flash an Android 13 Beta system image to your supported Pixel device. Android Flash Tool works with any Web browser that supports WebUSB, such as Chrome or Edge 79+.

Android Flash Tool guides you step-by-step through the process of flashing your device—there's no need to have tools installed—but you will need to unlock your device and enable USB Debugging in Developer options.

Connect your device over USB, then navigate to Android Flash Tool and follow the onscreen guidance. For complete instructions, see the Android Flash Tool documentation.

Flash your device manually

You can also download the latest system image and manually flash it to your device. See the following table to download the system image for your test device. Manually flashing a device is useful if you need precise control over the test environment or if you need to reinstall frequently, such as when performing automated testing.

After you back up your device data and download the matching system image below, you can flash the image onto your device.

You can choose to return to the latest public build at any time.
