Another beta update for Android 13 is rolling out to supported Pixel devices, this time labeled as Beta 3.3. It’s another big bug fixer according to the changelog, a great sign for Android 13, as it has been already running pretty smoothly on my own Pixel 6 Pro.
Below you can view the full list of changes in Android 13 Beta 3.3, but a few of the things that stick out to us are a fix for a system UI crash when using the back gesture, a fixed kernel issue, a fixed issue with the Connectivity Thermal Power Manager, and plenty else.
What’s New in Beta 3.3
- Fixed an issue with the Pixel launcher where if the Always show keyboard option was enabled for the app drawer, then when the user closed the app drawer and opened an app folder on the Home screen, the keyboard was erroneously shown as well. (Issue #236584457)
- Fixed an issue where in some cases, such as gesturing to go back, the system UI crashed. (Issue #236558007)
- Fixed an issue where devices couldn’t connect to a WiFi network in some cases even when the network was available and the signal strength was good. (Issue #236617510)
- Fixed an issue where the
BluetoothManagerServicecontinued to try and bind to the
falseleading to slow performance and cold starts for apps.
- Fixed an issue where in some cases after a device was plugged in to charge (for example, overnight), the device would become unresponsive until it was rebooted.
- Fixed a kernel issue with
lib/list_debug.cthat caused a kernel panic in certain cases on some devices.
- Fixed an issue with the Connectivity Thermal Power Manager that caused slow UI rendering, unresponsiveness in apps, and poor battery performance in some cases.
