Google Releases A Patch Update Of Android 11 Beta 2.5

Google released a new patch note recently, as a slight update to the Android 11 Beta 2, as there were several bugs that were being reported. A minor update as called by Google, fixes display and other app issues that users faced. Google categorized these issues in General, and Google App issues, and they’ve been listed down 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)
  • The screen no longer flickers on some devices when the screen is set to a low brightness level. (Issue #156051413)
  • Fixed various issues that could cause devices to reboot intermittently. (Issue #159888167)
  • The navigation bar no longer appears in cases when it wouldn’t normally display, such as during a device restart. (Issue #159592365)
  • Some Pixel 4/XL devices that have taken more than one Android 11 update are no longer blocked from receiving an OTA back to Android 10. (Issue #158765677)

Google Apps

  • Video recording is no longer interrupted sometimes when using the Camera app. (Issue #159185509)
  • The Dialer app no longer uses the speakerphone sometimes as the default audio device. (Issue #159203518)
  • In the Messages app, the RCS chat features no longer get stuck sometimes in the Connecting state. (Issue #159786769)

A lot of Android 11 Beta users faced problems with their 90Hz displays, as the higher refresh rate screen caused issues with the dark theme in the system, and the only solution for this was to dial back the refresh rate to 60Hz; Google has fixed that issue now. Users on the beta also have an option to go back to Android 10 easily if they’re not okay with the bugs within the Android 11 beta as of now.

It’s good to see Google bringing regular updates to the beta programme to address any and every issue at hand faced by users, as the date for the stable release of the latest Android OS version comes closer and closer.
