Get Android 13 QPR beta builds

You can get Android 13 QPR1 in any of the following ways:

Get QPR1 on a Google Pixel device

The easiest way to get Android 13 QPR1 on a Pixel device is to enroll your device in the Android Beta for Pixel program.

Enrolling is a simple and fast process, and it's highly recommended for developers and early adopters. In most cases, you don't need to do a full reset of your data to install an Android 13 QPR beta build, but it’s recommended that you back up data before enrolling your device.

After you have enrolled, your device is offered continuous over-the-air (OTA) updates to the latest beta builds (including QPRs) until you choose to unenroll that device from the program.

Each QPR beta cycle concludes with a stable release to the public. When you apply a stable release update, you can opt out of future beta updates without a data wipe for a limited time (until you apply the next beta update, if you choose to do so).

Android 13 QPR1 is available for the following Pixel devices:

  • Pixel 4a and 4a (5G)
  • Pixel 5 and 5a
  • Pixel 6 and 6 Pro
  • Pixel 6a
  • Pixel 7 and 7 Pro

Flash or manually install a system image

Alternatively, you can flash or manually install the latest Android 13 QPR beta build on your Pixel device. The recommended way to flash Android 13 QPR1 to a Pixel device is to use Android Flash Tool.

If you'd rather flash your device manually, you can get a system image for your device on the Factory images for Google Pixel page. See the general instructions there for how to flash a system image to your device. This approach can be useful when you need more control over testing, such as for automated testing or regression testing.

Get a generic system image (GSI)

Android Generic System Image (GSI) binaries are available to developers for app testing and validation purposes on supported Treble-compliant devices. You can use these images to address any compatibility issues as well as discover and report OS and framework issues.

See the GSI documentation for device requirements, flashing instructions, and information on choosing the right image type for your device. Once you're ready to download a GSI binary, see the Downloads section on the GSI binaries page.
