Google has started rolling out the Android 12 Developer Preview 1.1, its second build, to address bugs and issues. This minor incremental update also contains the March security patch.
Some of the notable issues resolved by Developer Preview 1.1 include an unresponsive fingerprint reader, Wi-Fi disconnection, crash during taking a screenshot from the lock screen, and more.
Here’s the full changelog:
- Fixed an issue where on some devices, the device intermittently disconnected from Wi-Fi even when the Wi-Fi signal was strong.
- Fixed an issue where on some devices, the device displayed a “System UI keeps stopping” message if the user tried to take a screenshot by pressing Power + Volume Down from the Lock screen.
- Fixed an issue with partial wake locks that could cause excessive battery drain.
- Fixed an issue where a device’s fingerprint reader could become unresponsive when the device was suspended, requiring the user to unlock their device using another method.
- Fixed an issue where the Settings app could crash if the user tried to access app notification settings.
- Fixed an issue where the system UI could freeze after the user updated the device.
- Fixed an issue where the CellBroadcastReceiver app could not obtain the android.permission.BROADCAST_CLOSE_SYSTEM_DIALOGS permission, causing emergency alerts to crash.
- Fixed an issue that could cause some devices to reboot intermittently.
- Fixed an issue that could cause some devices to reboot after the user unlocked the device using their PIN.
The Android 12 Developer Preview 1.1 is live as an OTA update carrying size of 5MB. You can check for this update under Settings -> Check for update. It is now available for Pixel 3 and 3a series, Pixel 4 and 4a series, and Pixel 5.
