Google released Android 13 Beta 2.1 on Thursday. The update comes less than a month since the release of Android 13 Beta 2, and brings a handful of bug fixes and some stability improvements.

Some of the bug fixes address things like an issue where typing in the search bar resulted in a blank list of suggestions and an issue where a device would crash and restart when turning on hotspot. Other fixes include an issue where devices would crash and restart after disconnecting from Android Auto and one where the call dialing sound could be heard in the background during a phone call.

The update is available for Pixel phones back to the Pixel 4.
