Android 13 QPR1 beta 3 is rolling for the Pixel smartphones but it looks like the firmware isn’t worth upgrading. The latest information reveals that a Pixel 7 Pro user cannot use the Double-Tap feature after installing the Android 13 Beta 3 update.

It’s been a week since Google released the respective update for its Pixel devices. Besides, this rollout was particularly for the Pixel 7 phones. But instead of benefits, the users are dealing with some severe issues on their devices.

Recently, a user reported that his Pixel 7 Pro Double-Tap feature isn’t responding after the Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3 upgrade. Though it was all good before the beta installation. Yet, after the update procedure, the feature stopped working.

“I have the Gesture – Double-Tap, back of my Pixel 7 Pro device to open the camera app. It worked fine before I added the beta and I thought it was still working. But the next day, when I swapped to a new phone case, the Double-Tap does nothing.”

The user immediately removed new cover to check whether the problem was with the phone or the case. Yet, the Double-Tap feature didn’t work.
