Google has released Android 12L Beta 2 with patches for various Pixel issues

The update repaired some issues found on the first beta version of Android 12L by developers such as the clock on the lock screen not being centered on the display. Another issue fixed by the update had all of the recent apps in the recent apps view appear as a black image with an “App isn’t available” toast message. Second beta version of Android 12L is now available for large-screened phones Also fixed was an issue that surfaced when using gestures to switch between apps that, according to Google, “sometimes left an image of the previous app’s state showing over part of the current app.” Other issues resolved by the update included one that made icons appear smaller on the lock screen on larger displays. Another bug exterminated failed to dismiss the lock screen after the device was unlocked. And lastly, an issue that caused bitmap images to render incorrectly or disappear was fixed.

Google has published the second beta version of Android 12L, which is optimised for phones with larger screens. If you have an Android 12 beta or developer programme installed on your Pixel 3a, 4, 4a, 5, or 5a series device, you may now apply the update via OTA. The update for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro should arrive soon. Keep these points in mind about the beta version before updating your compatible Pixel device, according to Google: This version may have difficulties with stability, battery life, or performance. For people who have never used a beta version of an operating system before, this is a major red signal. This release may not be suitable for daily usage by users with accessibility needs. Keep this in mind when determining whether or not to participate.

Among the top open issues on Android 12L is a bug that causes a distinct delay between the lock screen and home screen when unlocking the phone. A laggy and stuck keyboard is the next bug on the list, followed by the wrong size for the Google weather widget, and a fix is needed to repair a bug causing the At a glance screen to not show the weather. When we tell you that a beta version can be too unstable to use, we weren’t joking.

This isn’t the first time that Google developed a special version of Android for larger-screened devices. Debuting on the Motorola Xoom tablet in February 2011 was the third major version of the operating system known as Honeycomb. With Honeycomb installed, Android tablets offered a two-panel UI for email and contacts. The Gallery app let users view albums and other collections in full-screen mode, while other photos in a collection were able to access thumbnails. The Browser app replaced browser windows with tabs, added an incognito mode to browse anonymously, and presented bookmarks and history in a unified view, among other features. A redesigned keyboard made entering text easier on large-screen devices such as tablets, and Android 3.0 Honeycomb also featured a Recent Apps view for multitasking.
