Post the process, Google will be sending the Android 13 Beta update to the user's smartphone. They can check if the update has arrived or not by going to Settings > System > System update. Then they will need to tap "Download and Install" once the update reaches their device. The installation of the update will be normal as any other update. The future updates will also be arriving in the beta program.

It's worth mentioning that there's also a manual way of installing Android 13 beta on Pixel smartphones. However, this method is quite complicated and requires a lot of processes to be completed on a Windows or Mac machine. We don't advise this method as if a user doesn't follow the process correctly, they can permanently damage their phone.

Android 13 Final Build Could Be Announced At Google I/O In May

That said, since Android 13 software is in beta format, we'd advise the users against installing it on their daily driver. The OS is currently buggy and some features of phones won't work till a fix rolls out later this year. Notably, we can expect other OEMs to announce Android 13 beta programs for their devices at this year's I/O in May.
