Moreover, if you were facing the problem of hearing a continuous call dialing sound could in the background during a phone call, the new update has now taken care of it. The Android 13 Beta 2.1 patch has also fixed the issue where devices would crash and restart after disconnecting from Android Auto. Moreover, the users will no more land on a blank list of suggestions after typing in the search bar.
This mid-cycle update still includes the same list of known issues as Beta 2 released on May 11, except for those mentioned above.

If a user is at the Android 12 QPR (Quarterly Platform Release) Beta program, they will need to opt-out and re-sign up for the Android 13 Beta, keeping in mind that the Android 13 Beta is still in early Beta and there may be a lot of issues.
