Things seem to be amiss.

Several people aren't able to use wireless charging after installing the latest OS, which released earlier this week There have been a number of posts on the internet about the issue with the wireless charging of the devices. If you own a Pixel 6 or 6 Pro, you won't be able to roll back to Android 12 after the update.

Some users have reported that the phones seem to know that they are on a wireless charging point. The batteries seem to not pull in any juice, and some charging pads report that the phone may be malfunctioning or that there is a general charging error.

“It shows connected but not charging.”

One user reported that after disabling the Pixel Stand app, they were able to charge their device again after forgetting to add the stand, but other users haven't had luck. A staff member at The Verge had a friend who said that the first-gen Pixel Stand seemed to forget and then charged again after they set it back up.

A number of users have reported issues with rapid charging with one user saying that the Pixel 4A 5G only charges 10 percent in an hour. They did not specify if they were using wireless or wired charging, but they did say that they plugged and unplugged their phone.

It wasn't immediately clear if there was a fix for the issue or if the issue was fixed.

It is unfortunate that this sort of issue is happening in the newest version of the operating system since some users say it started during the early stages of the testing process. Even though the stability of its updates has been a point of concern, the fact that Android 13 is having issues with something as fundamental as charging doesn't inspire confidence that the stability of its updates is going to improve.
