How to download and install Android 13 on your phone?
To download and install Android 13 on your Pixel phone, first make sure your phone is connected to a stable Wi-Fi network and connected to power. For over-the-air (OTA) update to work, the battery must be at least 50% charged.
To start installing Android 13, run Settings app. You can have the app right on your home screen, but if not, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the app drawer and scroll through the apps until you find Settings.
Then scroll down and tap System > System update. If an update is available, it should load here after a few seconds. If not, tap Check for updates. Also, make sure your device has enough space to download and install the updates, otherwise you won’t be able to continue. Typically, the size of the update file is several GB.
Finally, tap on the green one Download and install in the bottom right corner. Android 13 will then begin downloading and installing, which may take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes depending on the size and condition of your phone. You’ll be using Android 13 after restarting your phone.
Note: If you don’t see the Android 13 update yet, don’t worry. If you have a Pixel compatible phone, you’ll get one – it just might be a while.
