Download Android 13 Developer Preview 2 for your Pixel phone
A month after testing Android 13 and the new Developer Preview 2 has been released. Things are going as planned in the preview phase before we get to the first beta scheduled for next month.
If you have a spare Pixel phone or don’t care about a potentially unstable build, you can access Android 13 Developer Preview 2 by flashing a system image. Supported devices at the moment include the Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6, Pixel 5a, Pixel 5, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4 XL, and Pixel 4. The Pixel 3a, for those who have it missed, was cut from previews of Android 13.
Release date: March 17, 2022
Emulator support: x86 (64-bit), ARM (v8-A)
Security patch level: March 2022
Google Play services: 22.06.15
Brave souls who flashed Android 13 DP1 build, you should see a live DP2 update here shortly. If you’ve been waiting for it and want to get started with DP2 on your supported Pixel, you can still get in by flashing an image. You can find instructions on how to flash a developer preview here. Android 13 DP2 factory images are here. OTA files for DP2 are here.
Again, next month should be the launch of the Android 13 Beta program where you won’t have to manually flash anything. For now, however, this is still a developer-focused situation.
