Xiaomi has become the latest OEM to announce the Android 13 beta testing program. Its program is currently exclusive to Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro global users. It joins Vivo, iQOO, and OnePlus in testing the new major Android version ahead of the stable release for their respective devices.
Android 13-based MIUI beta testing is available for global Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro users but there are only 200 seats. It means you need to act fast if you wish to be one of the beta testers. The company has referred to the rollout as the first wave suggesting we may see more batches open up in the future.
As per an official thread on Xiaomi Community, it is recommended that users back up all important data before installing the beta version. The update installation may also take slightly longer than usual. Beta testers may also experience overheating and other performance issues. Xiaomi also says some of the third-party apps may become incompatible with Android 13. It means testers will not be able to use those apps as intended.
The beta build for Xiaomi 12 is said to have version number 18.104.22.168.TLCMIXM and for Xiaomi 12 Pro is 22.214.171.124.TLBMIXM. The update size is 4.2GB and 4.3GB respectively for the two flagships. If you are interested in becoming a beta tester, click the source link below to read in detail.
