In a rapid succession of releases, Google has now launched the Android 13 QPR3 Beta 2.1, which comes with a new March 2023 security patch. This new update comes just a little over a week after the previous Beta 2 release, and Google is showing no signs of slowing down.
A patch, Beta 2.1, and a fresh batch of modem updates have just been made available for Android 13 QPR3, also known as Quarterly Platform Release 3. Since Beta 2 was just released a week ago, the most recent upgrade is quite a surprise.
“According to the official release notes from Google, the latest version of Android has only one improvement listed, and that is to the modem.”
Android QPR3 Beta 2.1
Android 13 QPR3 is the latest iteration in a series of updates that build upon the previous versions of the Android 13 operating system. This new release incorporates the refinements and improvements made in Android 13 QPR2 and the initial Android 13 release while also introducing a new set of performance and stability enhancements.

A noteworthy point regarding Android 13 QPR3 Beta 2.1 is that it has not yet incorporated the April 2023 security patch, which aligns it with the stable Android 13 version.
