Vivo and iQOO have kicked off Android 13 Preview Program registrations in India. The announcement has come just a day after Google made Android 13 available for Pixel devices. The program is currently open only for Vivo X80 Pro and iQOO 9 Pro users in the country. Both of these are premium flagship smartphones from the respective brands.
The preview program has only 500 seats available for each of the phones. This is why you should act fast if you wish to become one of the beta testers. Both devices will receive Funtouch OS 13 based on Android 13 as the new software experience. A user needs to visit Settings>System Update>Settings icon>Trial Version to submit their registration.

One important thing to note is that Funtouch OS 13 will be available as a beta build starting August 23rd. It means there will likely be bugs and performance issues with the software. It is advised that you proceed to become a beta tester only if you are okay with facing those issues. Otherwise, it is recommended that you wait until the stable build becomes available.
