Android 12 was not described clearly and was intended for some Pixel smartphone users.

In addition to the release of Android 13, Google also announced that the software rollout for its Pixel smartphones will begin on Monday. In addition to the Pixel 4 XL model, the update is also expected to be rolling out to the recently launched Tensor-powered Pixel 6a.

Unfortunately, things aren't going as planned for some Pixel owners, who are seeing Android 12 instead of Android 13 on their devices. Thank goodness, Google clarified the matter.

Several Reddit users have reported seeing Android 12 instead of Android 13 updates, according to 9to5Google. Most users are experiencing the update.

The update, which is about 2GB in size and claims to upgrade Pixel devices to Android 12, surprised many people. In the hope that it had been mislabelled, some users even updated to the available version, only to find themselves back on Android 12.

It took Google some time to clarify to the source that the Android 12 update reaching Pixel users is not a flaw or an error, but is intended since it is a previously released update with bug fixes. It was clear that the timing of the update was the problem since some users received it shortly after Android 13 was released.

In addition, Google has clarified that the description of the update is being changed to make it more clear. Google confirmed that Android 13 is a separate update and is being rolled out gradually.

Shortly, users can expect an update on their smartphones. Gadgets 360 has confirmed that the recently launched Pixel 6a has not yet received its Android 13 update.

Android 13 for Pixel smartphones was released by Google on Monday. As part of Android 13's many new features, multilingual users can also assign specific languages to individual apps.

The media player interface has been updated, and messaging apps can soon be mirrored to Chromebooks. Later this year, Google will bring Android 5.0 to smartphones made by Samsung, Xiaomi, Nokia, and more.
