Android TV 13 beta test was released in the past months. Now it turns out that this beta version is over and the full version will be revealed.
Unlike smartphones, accessing the beta version of Android TV 13 is much more difficult and almost impossible for general users. It requires certain developer-focused hardware, and not everyone can launch and run the beta version of Android TV. In fact, the second beta of Android 13 was so restrictive that only certain devices could run the operating system.
The most active OEMs can start rolling out stable Android TV 13 to their TVs after Google releases the codes to OEMs in a few weeks. On the other hand, there is no official statement about the release date of the operating system to the public at this time.
Additionally, Android TV 13 is said to prioritize features below the UI more. This suggests that the UI of the next Android TV may not receive a major overhaul. In essence, Google provides developers with additional APIs and accessibility tools. As a result, the TV-friendly platform will become increasingly accessible.
Speaking of changes, Android TV 13 will now allow users to change the default refresh rate and screen resolution, as well as add support for additional keyboard layouts, live voice annotation functionality, and improvements to the audio manager API. These changes will depend on user preferences. However, the user experience will be redesigned with Android 13.f
