Work on Android 11 is in full swing. No wonder – Google has to release a stable version in early September, and so far there have been many bugs. Many beta testers have found that Android developers send various updates and patches significantly more often than in previous versions of the Green Robot. Each beta update contains a long list of fixes. As of today, sending a new patch started improving the system – now it's version 2.5.
Android 11 Beta 2.5 has been released with many bug fixes.
This patch fixes some issues that have occurred with Pixel devices. The biggest problem this time was the display that was found on the Pixel 4. Some users had a flickering screen image when the brightness was below average. In addition to solving this problem, Google has released a list of other fixes. Here are some of them:
- Fixed issues where a user could not hear or record audio in apps after a VoIP call.
- The notification bar sometimes disappears when a user swipes down at the top of the screen. (Issue # 159768228)
- On some devices, the screen no longer flickers when the screen is set to a low brightness level. (Issue # 156051413)
- Fixed various issues that could result in devices restarting intermittently. (Issue # 159888167)
- The navigation bar disappears when it is not normally displayed, e.g. B. during a restart of the device. (Problem No. 159592365)
- Some Pixel 4 / XL devices that have performed more than one Android 11 update can no longer get an OTA back on Android 10. (Problem No. 158765677)
- Video recording is no longer interrupted sometimes when using the camera app. (Issue # 159185509)
- The Dialer app sometimes no longer uses the speakerphone as a standard audio device. (Issue # 159203518)
- In the Messages app, the RCS chat features sometimes get stuck in connection status. (Issue # 159786769)
If you dare, you can download the Android 11 Beta 2.5 update now. It is available for Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
The stable version of Android 11 is expected to be released in September 8
So far, Android 11 is only available to users and developers in beta status, but there is not much time until the final version of this Operating system is released. Judging by the video released on the YouTube channel for Google developers, the stable version of Android 11 will be released on September 8th.
Last year, on the first Tuesday of September 2019, Android 10 was released. So Google does not change its tradition. It should be noted that the release of the final version of Android 11 in early September does not match the appearance on smartphones. Only Google Pixel gets the operating system on the same day, and other manufacturers release the updates in a month or two. And this does not apply to all models.
