Upcoming Pixel Feature Drop bring back that feature not in March

Every system update brings bug fixes and enhancements to previous features. Now, the Android 13 QPR3 Beta program is planned to test features that may come in the Pixel June Feature Drop, on June 5th. Currently, it is not clear yet about Feature Drop will arrive given that Google has failed to adhere to its usual schedule when releasing updates for eligible Pixel models.

March Feature Drop

As per sources that the most recent QPR3 Beta update (QPR Beta 3) restores a feature that was removed from compatible Pixel phones during the March Feature Drop.

The ability for Pixel users to share a screenshot of a QR code that, when scanned, would enable any Android or iOS phone to connect to the Pixel user’s Wi-Fi network was removed with the update that came out last month. Following the Feature Drop of the previous month, whenever a Pixel user attempted to share a screenshot of the QR code, all that would appear as a black screen

Now, users may think that the removal of the feature was a bug. However, when a Pixel user complained that the feature did not work, it concluded in the Google Issue Tracker, where a Google engineer wrote that the deletion of the Wi-Fi sharing feature was not going to be fixed and said that the change was planned.

The company seems to have reverted this change in Android 13 QPR3 Beta 3, meaning you can once again take a screenshot of the Share Wi-Fi page to share with others reads a tweet from tech journalist Mishaal Rahman.

Lastly, the upcoming ANdroid 14 Beta 2 release is likely to incorporate this modification.
