- Android 13 should appear for the first smartphones in a few weeks.
- A user has accidentally already received the software.
Google is currently still fine-tuning Android 13. So far, the upcoming mobile OS is only officially available in a beta version. But one user claims to have already received the final version of the software from Google.
one Report by Phone Arena According to reports, the owner of a Google Pixel 4 received the final version of Android 13 as a download a few days ago. This bears the name TP1A.220603.002.A1. According to the report, it is not a beta because the smartphone was never registered for the test program.
However, after the update, Google Pay stopped working, so the Pixel owner tried everything to get the service working again. Unfortunately, after all attempts were unsuccessful, the smartphone had to be reset to the factory settings. After that, there was no trace of the software to be found and everything worked as usual again.
How could that happen?
How exactly the mishap happened is not entirely clear, but the update was probably a version for employees that was accidentally delivered to the user. Google employees often receive new software before the official release in order to find and eliminate the last errors. A good example of this is the user’s problems with Google Pay.
