Android 13 beta 3.3 has been released to improve the connectivity of the Pixel 6 series

Written by admin

Let’s face it, the Pixel 6 series can remain a bit buggy until the stable version of Android 13 is released in July or August. Now, this writer must confess that I recently had some connectivity issues with my Pixel 6 Pro that prevented the phone from making calls; previously this was not an issue with my handset.

I found that I could quickly reconnect by toggling airplane mode on and off. You can find Airplane mode by going to . to go SettingsTap Network & Internet Turn airplane mode on or off† The upcoming update to Android 13 will also help fix some of the bugs that are still in the Pixel 6 series.

Google released Android 13 beta 3.3 this morning, which comes with fixes for Wi-Fi connectivity and more. According to Google, the update includes “the latest stability and performance improvements,” including a trio of patches related to Android connectivity:

  • Fixed an issue where devices could not connect to a Wi-Fi network even if the network was available and the signal strength was good.
  • Fixed an issue with BluetoothManagerService that caused slow performance and cold starts for apps.
  • Fixed an issue with the Connectivity Thermal Power Manager that caused slow user interface rendering, unresponsive apps, and poor battery performance in some cases.

Other issues related to the user interface (UI), user experience (UX), and overall device performance. The beta also fixed an issue where in some cases, if the Always show keyboard option was enabled for the app drawer, the user closed the app drawer and opened an app folder on the home screen, the keyboard was also incorrectly displayed . Also fixed an issue where in some cases, such as gestures to go back a page, the system UI would crash.

Time to pick up the Google Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro

To join the Android 13 Beta program, the easiest way to manually install the latest Android 13 beta on your Pixel is to go to Android beta for Pixeland click on ‘View your eligible devices’. Models from the Pixel 4 through the Pixel 6 Pro can participate in the beta program. After you see a picture of your eligible device, tap + Opt-in. You will receive an update within 24 hours via: SettingsSystemSystem update

Keep in mind that you are installing an unstable version of Android 13 on your phone in this scenario. In other words, to get back to a stable OS release, you need to wipe your phone and do a factory reset (UGH!). Honestly, why put yourself through the heartache and headache. Wait for the stable version of Android 13 to be released.
