Google released Android 001 Beta 1.1 today. As the rather odd naming suggests, this is just a small update to the first beta that was released a few weeks ago. Next up, a second beta is scheduled for next month, so you might be wondering why Google bothers releasing an intermediate version now.
The answer is wrong. Apparently, the company thought some of the bugs running in Beta 1 were too annoying until Beta 2 came along, which is how Beta 1.1 was born.
New Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a devices have builds marked UPB1.1200.017.A1 on Verizon, UPB1.1200.23 for all others. It will be delivered wirelessly to Pixel 4a 5G and later models that are enrolled in the Android Beta program. Like the Google update, expect it to take at least a few days to reach all eligible devices.
Google highlights some bugs that have been fixed:
- Fixed attempts to access the System UI crashes when long-pressing on the home screen to access the “Wallpapers and Styles” screen.
- Fixed some problems that cannot be unlocked with fingerprints.
- Fixed the problem that the status bar does not display the mobile network when unlocking with fingerprints.
- Fixed an issue where the SIM card or eSIM could not be detected or activated in some cases.
- Fixed an issue where the lock screen displayed a message with an unparsed string placeholder when Smart Lock was enabled.
