Android 11 Developer Preview 2.1 Fixes Several Bugs And Issues


Google rolled out Android 11 Developer Preview 2 (DP2) with several new features a few days ago. Now, the tech gaint has released a patch update to fix several bugs in the previous roll-out.

Interestingly, Google followed the same pattern last month as well, where it released a patch update just a few weeks after the release of Android 11 DP1.

As one can expect, the new update fixes some issues that developers reported in the DP2. Here is the full changelog:


  • Fixed an issue where a crash would occur when long-pressing to select an element within the recent apps overview
  • Fixed an issue where the status bar could crash in the background if its components weren’t all initialized yet
  • Fixed an issue where too many WindowTokens were created by SystemUI causing jankiness and dropped frames when navigating and scrolling apps


  • Fixed an issue where the Wear OS app could crash when trying to pair a Wear OS device
  • Fixed an issue where the Settings app could crash after tapping the search bar in the app

Again, all Android 11 updates (including Android 11 DP 2.1) are only available on Google Pixel devices, except the Pixel 1. Pixel owners can either flash the new update manually, use the Android flash tool, or wait for the OTA to arrive.

Meanwhile, there is still no word on the Google Beta program, the early Android release testing ground for a bunch of devices from different vendors. However, we can expect it in May, going by the previous Android 10 release timeline.
