Android 13 Beta 3 offers a redesigned enrolling UI that should make it easier to register your fingerprint on devices with in-display readers.

Naturally, this means that the new UI is only now accessible for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro since the Pixel 6a and Pixel 7 series are not yet officially available. You might never actually see this new UI if you update a device that already has pre-registered biometric information. However, in Android 13 Beta 3, when enrolling a fingerprint or thumbprint, you will notice a new animation and guidance to help you achieve a better reading of your finger at the later phases of this procedure.

It’s possible that these new guidelines and improved UI have been included to ensure better registration processes for all customers given the negative press that the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro in-display fingerprint scanners have gotten. It is known that the next Pixel 6a will use a different in-display scanner, but it is unclear whether this new development would help resolve the problems with the Pixel 6 series.

It is now clearer when to start modifying your finger and add the extremities or edges thanks to Android 13’s redesigned fingerprint enrolment UI. Currently, Android 12 uses a text prompt and guidance brackets, which are really partially hidden while your finger is pressed on the screen.

Making this modification to Android 13’s fingerprint enrolment area could have significant advantages for the incoming Pixel 7 series while also helping people who are having issues with their current Pixel 6 series phone and ensuring faster unlock speeds when using the new unlock method.
