1. A method for wireless communication at a first wireless device, comprising:receiving, from a second wireless device, one or more timing advance (TA) commands indicating a first TA value associated with a first beam pair link (BPL), the one or more TA commands formatted according to a first value for a TA parameter comprising a TA command size, or a TA granularity, or a combination thereof;
receiving a beam switch command for the first wireless device to switch from communicating with the second wireless device using the first BPL to communicating with the second wireless device using a second BPL;
estimating a second value for the TA parameter different from the first value for the TA parameter based at least in part on the received beam switch command; and
receiving, from the second wireless device, a TA command indicating a second TA value associated with the second BPL, wherein the TA command is formatted according to the identified second value for the TA parameter.
