Have you ever installed an Android Beta build on your Pixel device, used it for a few days, and then felt like it's not worth it? The only official to get rid of it is by wiping the whole phone and then reinstalling the stable version. However, it's a lot of fuss and most users end up continuing using the beta build. Well, it looks like Google knows your frustration and wants to provide an easy of switching to the stable version from the beta version.

Google released the first version of Android Quarterly Platform Release (QPR) for the Pixel 6 series yesterday. Google is bringing the change that will allow Android Beta Program users on Pixel devices to switch to the stable version at end of the beta cycle. Google, on Reddit, wrote:


For future beta releases, we will ensure that all beta devices (Pixel 4, 4a, 5, 5a, 6, 6 Pro series) receive each official stable release to the public so you can opt-out without a data wipe for a limited time until you apply the next beta update. The next stable public release will be in June.

According to Google, the Android 12 QRP3 stable build will be released in June. At that time, Pixel owners on Android Beta Program will be able to opt out of it without wiping their devices. What are your thoughts on Google finally bringing this feature? Let us know in the comments section below!
