Google has started serving new system improvements to Pixel devices in the name of the Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2.1 update. The firmware is live for the older handsets in the family. While those carrying a Pixel 8 or 8 Pro need to keep patience for some more time.
Checking out the software details, the latest Android 14 QPR1 Beta is rolling out with the U1B2.230922.010 version. The update package may vary in size hence, it is better to keep sufficient room in your device for the installation.
Apart from some noteworthy fixes, the new firmware accompanies the October 2023 patch to level up the security segments of Pixel handsets. Other than that, you can check out the improvements below.
Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2.1 – Fixes
- Fixed issues with biometric authentication, such as an issue that sometimes prevented the under-display fingerprint sensor from activating while always-on display features were enabled.
- Fixed an issue where, in some cases after swapping SIM cards on a device, the device couldn’t connect to cellular service.
- Fixed various issues that were impacting system stability and performance.
Concerned with the Pixel 8 series, Google said that these devices will receive this update at a later time. It seems as if the company is currently addressing and fixing the issues found with these models. Perhaps, it is taking its time to resolve the problems permanently.
