Android TV 13 Finishes Testing Phase

Final Version May Roll Out Soon

It has been months since the beta testing for the Android TV 13 was started. Unlike smartphones, getting access to the beta version of Android TV is much more difficult and almost impossible for general users. It requires specific developer-focused hardware, and not everyone can just boot and run the beta version of Android TV. Now that the Android TV 13 has completed beta testing, it has been formally released.



The functionalities below the UI are given more importance in Android TV 13. This is a hint that the UI of the upcoming Android TV might not get a major makeover. Users will be able to change the screen resolution and refresh rate that is set by default on Android TV 13. It will also add support for more keyboard layouts, a live audio description feature, and enhancements to the audio manager API. 

The Google Advantage

Google is providing additional APIs and accessibility tools to developers. This will progressively make the TV-friendly platform more approachable as compared to the competition. At the very least, this gives the users reason to hope that Android TVs may soon be simpler to use. The user’s preferences will determine these adjustments. However, Android TV 13 will rethink the user experience. It introduces a number of technical advancements that will expand the TV platform.


No official confirmation has arrived for the estimated time of arrival of the Android TV 13 software update. The stable rollout is still in the works and not yet accessible to the general public. It is expected that once they are ready to launch, it might be pushed through like a regular OTA update in the global markets.
