Android 13 Update

Google is rolling out the Android 13 stable update to the Pixel Phones right now and the update is also released on Android Open Source Project (AOSP). This time in Android 13 Google does not make any big change, they are more focused on tying the loose ends in Android. However, there are some new features for pixel users. Some of the main highlighted features are you can now use Material You’s app color theming to third-party apps, app-level language settings, better privacy controls, and improved multitasking features.
