Android 13 beta 3.1 drops out of nowhere to fix one significant problem
- Google has launched Android 13 beta 3.1.
- This is a point update over the just launched beta 3.
- The reason for the update is to fix a missing Feedback app.
Earlier this week, Google launched the latest beta of its upcoming Android 13 software. The beta brought the work-in-progress operating system to Platform Stability, a significant milestone.
However, the release caused a problem. Some users found that they were missing the Feedback app, which they would use to send notes to Google on any problems they found. Without this, Google would miss out on valuable info from testers of the Android 13 beta.

Hence, this new beta 3.1 release. This launch has one express purpose: to bring the Feedback app to the limited number of users who are missing it.
It appears the majority of users missing the Feedback app are ones who just joined the beta program. As such, you might still have it even if you’re on beta 3. Regardless, if you have the Feedback app, you don’t need to rush out for this beta 3.1 update. If you don’t have it, you should grab it soon so you can send Google any valuable feedback you might have.
This officially brings the number of beta releases so far to five, with at least one more on the way in July. We expect the stable version of Android 13 to launch at some point in August.
