  • Google has made it possible to downgrade from Android 13 to Android 12.
  • The downgrade option is available for the Pixel 6a, Pixel 6, and Pixel 6 Pro.
  • Only developers will be allowed to go back to Android 12 or 12L.

When Android 13 first started rolling out a few weeks ago, it was discovered that users wouldn’t be able to go back to Android 12 after updating. Now, Google is allowing some Pixel owners to go back to Android 12.

In a story we reported on earlier this month, it was found that Android 13 contained an update for its bootloader, enabling an anti-rollback counter. As a result, once you updated to Android 13, you were stuck with it. This is something that applied to all Pixel users, including developers.
