First Beta Released for Android 13

Having released two Developer Previews so far, Google has finally released the first Android Beta available for everyone to test. In fact, it should be noted that this Android 13 Beta 1 version is for supported Google Pixel smartphones. Of course, this version is also easier to install than the Developer Preview. However, we would like to remind you that you may encounter many issues with this version as this is the first of four betas planned before the final release is released this year.

Android 13 Beta 1 comes with new permissions for more granular access to media files and advanced audio routing APIs. Apps that want to access the media on your phone now have three different permissions specific to the type of file they want to access. One for images and photos, one for videos and one for audio files. Previously, this was all a single media access permission, which allowed the app to access all types of media. Once you grant one of the new permissions, that app will only have read access to the respective media file types and nothing else. There are some minor improvements to audio routing as well as better error reporting for key generating apps.

If you are interested in trying Android 13 Beta 1 and have a supported Google Pixel smartphone, Android Beta Program You can go to the website and register your device.

We expect the company to share more details about Android 13 along with new features at the Google I/O developer conference next month. There is a high probability that the second beta will be released at this time.
