after launch two weeks agoGoogle is now rolling out Android 12 QPR3 Beta 1.1 for the Pixel 6 series. This is a preview of the upcoming June feature drop.
google “Identified some bugs in Beta 1 that affect a subset of devices that are… [it’s] Patch processing.” As such, beta 1.1 is only available for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro and is officially a “minor update” (S3B1.220218.006 vs. .004) coming as a 16.08MB OTA.
Here is a list of issues that were addressed, and we definitely encountered the second but not the first:
- Fixed some issues causing excessive battery drain.
- Improve the quality of calls related to issues such as Issue 224716473 Which caused loud noises during phone calls on some devices. Although we are still investigating the root cause of this and similar issues, we plan on making additional improvements for future beta releases.
When announcing the patch, Google also said it had addressed an issue for people leaving the Beta program. Again, opting out of the trial to a stable version will wipe your device:
Separately, the issue that prevented Pixel 6/Pro devices from canceling the subscription and not being able to apply the stable public update should also be fixed. Please let us know if you are still experiencing issues or errors such as “Could not find a valid operating system”. Please note that opting out will erase the data.
Beta 1.1 OTA is rolling out widely when “checking for update” this afternoon, while other devices (Pixel 4-5a) will continue to receive their first preview build of Android 12 QPR3. New factory and OTA images are now available. Google said today that Beta 2 will be the next update for all phones.
