The Beta Version

Android's developer site was updated to indicate that the beta is now available for Pixel devices dating back to the Pixel 4. Unfortunately, this does not include the Pixel 3A, which according to 9to5Google, will have its service term expire in May.

Despite the fact that Android's major version number upgrades normally get the most attention, Google has begun issuing more incremental feature updates to its Pixel devices throughout the year since 2019. In addition to Google's March Pixel feature drop, the news of the new QPR beta comes only a few days after Android 12L was released from beta earlier in the week.

The Features

The most important element left out of Google's announcement of its next beta is any indication of what features are included in the release. According to a statement from Google, the upgrade "provides advancements to functionality and user interaction, and the most recent bug fixes, optimizations, and the March 2022 security patches" for the time being, but will be followed by more updates in the future.
