Just like the first Monday of the month, Google released the latest monthly Android update for the still-supported Pixels just hours ago. The November 2022 update is the last bit before the big December release – it’s been in open beta testing for a few weeks under the moniker Android 13 QPR1. This also got an update today.
However, let’s start with the stable branch. If you’re a Pixel owner still getting updates, in the next few days (or weeks — Google’s scheduled releases can be really slow), you’ll receive the November update, which has build number TP1A.221105.002 for all devices except the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, TD1A.221105.003 on Verizon, and TD1A .221105.001 you will find elsewhere.
The update brings two fixes for issues that could cause power consumption to increase when certain apps are being loaded on the Pixel 6, 6 Pro, and 6a, and for issues only found on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Green screen flickering and sometimes causing the Photos app to crash when using some of its editing features. In addition, the display’s power draw has been optimized to improve temperature in certain conditions on the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.
Heading into the beta track, the latest Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3.1 comes with a lot of fixed issues and bugs, making it December’s big ‘feature drop’ as we get closer to the QPR1 beta. Until then, however, there may be another beta release. Anyway, if your Pixel is on the QPR1 beta train, it will soon receive this build (software version T1B3.221003.008).
