Google has released the first beta version of Android 13 for Android TV and Google TV

The first beta of Android 13 TV is now out, allowing developers and power users to get a sneak peek at the new smart TV interface. However, you can’t just install the latest beta release on your existing Android TV/Google TV device. To try out the Android 13 TV on a physical device, your only option is the ADT-3, an Android TV dongle for developers. Alternatively, you can use the Android Emulator for TV within Android Studio, the easiest way to get your hands on the new software.

We already know a lot about Android 13 thanks to developer previews and beta releases. However, the majority of the changes we’ve recorded thus far have been related to smartphones and tablets. There has been little information released on what the next version of Android will bring to TVs and streaming devices. That is no longer the case, as Google has published the Android 13 Beta for TV, giving us our first glimpse at the next generation of the Android TV platform.

As far as visual changes are concerned, the Android 13 TV doesn’t look dramatically different than the Android 12 TV. As noted by Mishaal Rahman, the first beta doesn’t include previously uncovered features like expanded picture-in-picture mode and Fast Pair support. Google notes that “Further customizations in Android to improve the experience and compatibility on TV will be introduced with each release.” Android 13 for TV was also previously shown to be working on a new “low power standby” mode which could disable wakelocks and cut off network access to apps to preserve power. However, it’s not immediately clear if this change is live in the first beta release. If you own an ADT-3 developer device, you can download the Android 13 system image and manually flash it on your test device.
