Ever wanted to tell Google exactly what you think about a particular version of Android? Pixel users running Android 12 QPR3 Beta 2 are invited by Google to submit feedback on this release. The software is the second beta version of the third Android 12 quarterly platform release. The quarterly releases are released every three months to be updated Pixel models, which now include the Pixel 4 series through the Pixel 6 line and include the mid-range models.
Google would like to hear from you about your experiences with the Android 12 QPR3 Beta 2 release
Pixel Quarterly Feature Drop brings new features to Pixel handsets and adds functionality to features already present on these phones. For example, the latest quarterly update in March included the new battery widget, Night Sight for Snapchat photos, and more. The Android 12 QPR3 beta includes features that are expected to be launched with the next quarterly Feature Drop, which Google is due to release on June 6th.

- Yes, I would recommend it to anyone.
- Yes, I would recommend it with reservations.
- No, I would not recommend it.
The next question asks: “Overall, how is this beta build compared to the previous Android 12 beta build?”
Your options for an answer are:

- Stability (automatic restart, device hangs).
- Performance (sluggish, slow touch sensitivity).

Although Google has said that this will change, right now it will result in your device being deleted if you quit the program. Follow the instructions in the section above, and this time when you press “View your eligible devices”, below the picture of your phone there will be an option to deselect. Within 24 hours you will get an update that brings you back on the public release track, but your data will be gone.
