Ahead of new Pixel phones, the Android 13 October update is rolling out with nine fixes.

After just five fixes last month, this second update touts nine improvements across Audio, Connectivity, User Interface, and Wi-Fi.

The bulk of fixes this month are for the Android 13 UI, including widget compatibility issues and empty Quick Settings tiles. There’s also a resolution for no app icon appearing in the media player for certain applications, as well as resolving a device crash when playing audio from local storage.
