A very minor update labeled as Beta 2.1 for Android 13 QPR2 testers is now available for Pixel devices. If you didn’t see it, Beta 2 was announced only a few days ago.

As for what’s new, this appears to be a very small bug fixer, but important enough for Google to be sending this update out. Inside, Google lists a cellular connectivity issue fix, as well as a Bluetooth issue fix. Details are below.

If you own a Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6 or 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, or Pixel 7 or 7 Pro, you can grab the latest beta. The build arrives as T2B2.221216.008 and brings a few notable things.
