On a Reddit post, Google said that Pixel users who are on the QPR2 Beta will automatically receive Android 13 QPR3 Beta 1 next week if they don’t exit the program by March 13th. Google has recently revealed that the beta program for the March Feature Drop will be released on March 13th, 2023. This upcoming release is highly anticipated by Pixel users who are excited to test out the latest features and improvements that Google has in store for them.
If you are on the QPR2 Beta and don’t exit the program by this Monday, March 13th, you will automatically receive Android 13 QPR3 Beta 1 next week. However, the exciting part is that Google has introduced a new way to exit the Beta program without wiping your phone. This means that Pixel users who are testing the new features can easily opt-out of the program without the risk of losing their data.
Under the new process, users no longer need to install the stable version of QPR2 before opting out of the Beta program. Instead, they can exit the Beta program directly without having to wipe their phones. To do this, users need to go to www.google.com/android/beta before March 13th and click on the “View your eligible devices” button. This will take them to an image of their Pixel device with the option to “Opt out” underneath. By tapping on this button, users can exit the Beta program without wiping their phones. However, they will still need to wait for the stable version of the QPR2 update, or the March Feature Drop, to be released later this month.
Google is making changes to the way Pixel users exit the Android Beta Program, and this has some important implications. Users who are on the QPR2 Beta and want to exit the program will now need to opt out before they can install the stable version of QPR2. If they fail to do so by March 13th, they will automatically receive the QPR3 Beta 1 update. If users want to return to the latest public version, they can use the “downgrade OTA update” option, but this will force them to wipe their phones.
To avoid this, users should opt out before the deadline to receive the stable version of QPR2. Google is taking steps to ensure that users don’t accidentally wipe their data, as this is a significant change. Users should be aware of these changes and take the necessary steps to protect their data and ensure that they receive the updates they want.
With this change, Pixel users can now enjoy the benefits of participating in the beta program without having to worry about losing their valuable data.
