Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 Released with Bug Fixes

Google‘s at it again. They’re rolling out Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1. What’s the focus? Squashing bugs and boosting system stability. This comes hot on the heels of the Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3 update from earlier this month. Remember that one? It brought some major UI changes.

And let’s not forget about Android 14 QPR2 Beta 2, released last December. That one also tackled a bunch of bugs.

So, what’s in the latest update? Well, it’s tagged as AP11.231215.009. It comes with the January 2024 security patch. And guess what? It’s available for all Pixel phones. We’re talking Pixel 6 series all the way to the Google Pixel 8 series. Oh, and it includes the Google Pixel 5a, Pixel tablet, and the Google Pixel Fold too.

Now, let’s talk about the issues fixed in the Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 update. They’ve improved the Game Dashboard overlay. They’ve fixed unlocking failures with always-on display mode and fingerprint. They’ve sorted out Quick Settings dialog height irregularities. They’ve corrected default search engine settings after a cloud backup restore. They’ve addressed display area update issues in accessibility settings. And they’ve improved audio quality during calls or recording using the microphone.

But wait, there’s more. They’ve also tackled problems related to device keyboard settings. They’ve added missing translations for various languages. They’ve fixed work profile icons not displaying for paused work apps. They’ve resolved rendering issues with shaders. They’ve corrected scaling of icons in picture-in-picture mode. They’ve fixed launcher glitches for foldable devices. And they’ve sorted out unresponsiveness of the app divider for foldable devices in split-screen mode. Plus, they’ve addressed various issues impacting system stability, performance, connectivity, camera, and accessibility.

But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 still has some known problems. Some users might experience unexpected reboots due to a native crash issue. A system connectivity issue might cause call failures. And foldable or tablet devices might encounter UI navigation handle visibility problems. But hey, that’s par for the course with beta builds. It’s not quite ready to replace stable software, but it’s getting there.
