Google Pixel 7 users have apparently gained dual eSIM support with the Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 update. The Pixel smartphones have supported the use of a single eSIM along with a physical SIM card for some time now. This new update allows users to ditch their physical SIM cards and have two eSIM profiles active at the same time. The Pixel 7 series is expected to get stable dual eSIM support in a few months. So we can expect more beta users to get this feature soon.
Esper Senior Technical Editor Mishaal Rahman (Twitter: @MishaalRahman) spotted a beta tester who got dual eSIM support on their Pixel 7. This device is said to be running Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2 version. A few other users also mentioned that dual eSIM support was activated on their Pixel 7.
Rahman believes that the Pixel 7 was already capable of supporting dual eSIM profiles. Google could have released a server-side update to the SIM Manager app that ships with Android 13 QPR2 Beta 2. Users were previously allowed to register multiple eSIM profiles. However, only one could be active at a time.
Google Germany reportedly had earlier called that it plans to bring dual eSIM support to the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro in March 2023. Rahman had recently claimed that Google may be working on a new feature that would allow users to easily transfer an eSIM profile from an old Android phone to a new one.
A new system feature could also allow users to convert a physical SIM card from an old handset to an eSIM in a new phone. Android currently does not include an eSIM profile transfer feature to a new device.
