Back in February, Google released the Android developer preview for Android 13, the next major Android release. It was only last month that it released Beta 1. At the Google I/O conference, the Android 13 Beta 2 was revealed. This Android version, like the previous two, continues to improve developer productivity while also improving privacy and security.
Minor changes to the display size and fonts, a new now playing animation, a privacy-protecting photo picker, and enhanced permissions for pairing with neighboring devices and accessing multimedia content, among other things, are included in Android 13 Beta 2.
For the previous few Android revisions, Google has urged its partners to provide beta improvements, and this year will be no different. The beta update is also available for ASUS, Lenovo, Nokia, OnePlus, OPPO, realme, SHARP, TECNO, Vivo, Xiaomi, and ZTE smartphones and tablets.
