Android 12 Beta 4.1: Stability Fixes And More

Here’s what’s fixed in the update, according to the official release notes.

  • The update fixes an issue where the devices would get stuck in a boot loop after a restart.
  • An issue where the volume controls did not work when casting.
  • Fixed face unlock issues.
  • Fixed issues where heads-up notifications were not showing up sometimes, and the user would need to open the notification drawer to view them.
  • An issue that prevented users from granting the Nearby Devices permission to the Phone app in settings is now fixed. Users who are experiencing a crash loop with the Phone app when trying to make a call over Bluetooth can now grant the required permission.
  • An issue where the device wouldn’t connect to the internet after connecting to a VPN has been fixed.

However, one issue that hasn’t been widespread is the search bar in the app drawer in the Pixel launcher. There’s a visible rectangular UI element wrapping around the search. This should be fixed in the next update.

We’ve been rocking this build on the Pixel 4a, and it’s a solid build. If you’re rocking a Pixel and can’t wait for the stable Android 12 update, here’s a guide on how to install Android 12 on Pixel devices.
