Android 15 Beta 3.1 bug fixes: As for fixes, you can see below the official list that talks about a lock screen touch input problem, biometric face authentication failures, and then the overall system stability, connectivity, and audio quality seeing improvements.

  • Fixed issues that caused the lock screen to intercept touch input and prompt the user to unlock the device, even when interacting with elements on the lock screen that don’t require the device to be unlocked. (Issue #348101427, Issue #345873537)
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused biometric face authentication to fail.
  • Fixed various other issues that were impacting system stability, connectivity, and audio quality.
