Google Pixel 4a issue with the Recent apps button should get fixed in an upcoming update
Google is steadily moving forward with its Android 12 beta program and the second beta update came out pretty recently.
As per a thread on Google IssueTracker, the Recent apps button is not working for some users running Android 12 beta on the device in question.
It seems that users of the Pixel 4a often face this issue where the Recent apps button does nothing or becomes unresponsive.
However, the issue was marked as fixed back in May and it was also said that a future update is going to address the problem.
According to an affected user, the Recent apps button works after restarting the Pixel 4a and shows all opened apps properly. However, it stops working once all opened apps are removed or closed from the Recent apps menu.
This clearly indicates that the said fix might not have been included in the Android 12 beta 2 update for Google Pixel 4a.
There is still some time before the stable version of Android 12 comes out so there is hope for those affected because of the said issue.
However, it is unclear whether the next Android 12 beta update for the Pixel 4a is going to fix the said issue or not.
Hopefully, the Android 12 beta 3 update fixes this problem for Google Pixel 4a users who are experiencing battery drain issues because of it.
That said, we will keep tracking the development of Android 12 and will report back as and when we get more details to share.
