The Android 12 Beta 4.1 update arrived this morning, filled with fixes for issues inside of Android 12. No doubt, Beta 4 has been pretty darn good for testers, at least it has been for me, but it’s still far from perfect. As we get closer to a final release, these dot-1 updates are certainly welcomed.
The new Beta 4.1 update is available to Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, and Pixel 5 right away. We have both factory image and OTA files for flashing, but there should be an Android Beta Program rollout as well.
Release date: August 25, 2021
Emulator support: x86 (64-bit), ARM (v8-A)
Security patch level: August 2021
Google Play services: 21.24.18
Google says that this Android 12 Beta 4.1 update fixes bugs that caused boot loops, volume controls not appearing when casting media, a face unlock issue, plus more.
