Google had released the first Android 11 Beta for testing last week. Today, the company has rolled out Android 11 Beta 1.5 build with a focus on some bug fixes. The company is calling this a minor update to the First Beta.
This minor update has build number RPB1.200504.020, and its getting rolled out to the Pixel devices, which are enrolled under the Android Beta program. This minor update doesn’t include new features but fixes to make the Google Play functional again and for some crash issues while using gesture navigation that forces the devices to restart. Below is what the update includes:
- Devices no longer crash (reboot) while using gesture navigation to switch apps in different orientations while rotating the device at the same time.
- On Pixel 3 and 3a, users setting up devices after reset can now activate a pSim service if the phone is currently using an eSIM service.
- Fixed issues that users were having when using contactless payments through Google Pay.
- The system no longer incorrectly enforces the Bluetooth privileged permission for RemoveBond. This resolves issues that could affect pairing, unpairing, and bond reset flows for Bluetooth devices, such as for Forget Watch on Wear OS devices.
However, there are still some known issues with Android Auto, etc. So if you come across issues while using it, keep in mind that Google is aware of these issues and will soon provide the fixes for them in the next beta or a minor update. For more details on this check the release notes.
