Two weeks after the launch of Android 12 Beta 2 we see how Google launches a new beta of the next major update of its mobile operating system, although this time it is a minor update.
On Android 12 Beta 2.1 we will not find any novelty, just bug fixes that during these days have been reported by users who installed Android 12 Beta on their mobiles. Google has to take great care of the stability of this new version, since it is the most downloaded beta in the history of the operating system.
Fixes in Android 12 Beta 2.1
Updating Android 12 Beta 2.1 It is now available to download from Pixel 3. If you have a Pixel with Android 12 Beta you can force the update OTA since Settings> System> System update> Check for updates. The update has a weight of about 4 MB.
As I said at the beginning, the novelties of Android 12 Beta 2.1 are to correct everything that the second beta broke two weeks ago after updating, with errors that affected the daily use of the device, since sometimes they prevented unlocking the phone or not being able to access to the notification bar and quick settings from the lock screen. The list of fixed bugs is as follows:
- Fixed an issue that prevented users from accessing items on the lock screen. For example, swipe down to see the notification ringtone, swipe up on notifications, or swipe up to unlock the phone. (Issue # 190702454)
- Fixed issues that caused information such as weather and calendar events to not appear in the 'At a Glance' widget on the home screen or lock screen. (Issue # 190700432, Issue # 190644743)
- Fixed an issue that sometimes caused flickering animations when accessing recent apps with gesture navigation.
- Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the microphone and camera permission indicators to get stuck and disappear until the phone was rebooted.
- Fixed an issue when using the Android emulator with an Android 12 Virtual Device (AVD) that prevented the AVD from connecting to the internet.
- Fixed an issue where after taking Beta and resetting the device some users were stuck in the setup wizard (Issue # 190082536).
The next update of Android 12 Beta will be next July, with the launch of the third beta, which is expected to arrive in about two weeks. In this version it will come with more news.
