Today’s release of the fourth and final Android 13 beta contains a release candidate build for Pixel phones and the Android emulator. There aren’t any noticeable user-facing changes in this, the final beta before the upcoming official release, however there are some final system behaviours and the most recent bug fixes and optimizations, such as:
Fixed a problem where some Bluetooth-paired devices could be seen to connect and disengage from the device quickly.
- The Google Camera app on Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones no longer crashes randomly.
- The system no longer falsely reported Android 12 as the device’s Android version when a user checked for system updates by going to Settings > System > System update, even when the device had previously been successfully updated to an Android 13 release.
- On Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones, a problem was fixed where the Now Playing page occasionally became stuck when downloading the song database.

- Using the power button, choose Recovery Mode.
