Google released the second Android 11 beta a few weeks ago. While that update arrived with platform stability enhancements, there were still a few nasty bugs that plagued Pixel devices. For instance, many Pixel 4 users experienced a flickering display issue while running the latest beta build.
Today, Google is releasing Android 11 beta 2.5 in hopes to fix some of those leftover bugs. Along with a fix for the Pixel 4â€™s screen flickering bug, this update also fixes issues regarding the notification drawer, audio recording in apps following VoIP calls, and more. Check out the full list of fixes below:
- Fixed issues that prevented a user from hearing or recording audio in apps after they made a VoIP call.
- The notification drawer no longer fails to appear sometimes when a user swipes down from the top of the screen. (Issue #159768228)
