Android 13 schedule: When will it launch?
- The basic Android 13 schedule is here.
- Overall, the schedule looks to be shorter than last year’s, with at least two developer previews and four betas.
- If all goes well, we could see an August 2022 launch of the stable release.
So far, Google has launched two developer previews and two betas for Android 13, with a subtle point upgrade landing on May 26. These are early versions of the operating system. Although anyone can download and install the latest beta, the software will be unstable, so install it at your own risk.
That being said, this newest beta represents our first taste of what the next version of Android will look like. As such, it might get you excited for the rest of the Android 13 schedule and when you can expect the stable version to launch.
Below, we’ve compiled all the info we have so far on the release schedule of Android 13.
Android 13 schedule
Google supplied us with the loose Android 13 schedule you see above. All in all, it’s a significantly shorter timeline than what we saw for Android 12 last year. So far, Google has kept tightly to the schedule with each milestone met. We should see at least two more beta launches between June and July. Google has said it aims to reach platform stability by June 2022.
Assuming there are no major setbacks, the stable launch of Android 13 should land around August 2022.
For the sake of comparison, Android 12’s stable launch happened on October 19, 2021. However, the transition from Android 11 to Android 12 was significant. Considering it doesn’t appear the shift from Android 12 to Android 13 will be nearly as drastic, it’s very possible Google will move things along a lot faster this year.
In the meantime, here are the significant Android 13 schedule milestones we’ve seen so far:
