If your Google Pixel device is running Android 14 QPR2 Beta, you are in luck, as the new Beta 2 update is now available bringing a set of fixes to make the experience more usable on a daily basis, although maintaining some issues expected from software in testing stage.

Android 14 QPR2 Beta 2 update main fixes and known issues

According to the official changelog, among the fixes that the Android 14 QPR2 Beta 2 update for Google Pixel devices brings, there are four that are especially notable.

  • Fixed an issue where battery usage information that was reported in system settings was sometimes incorrect.
  • Fixed an issue where the fingerprint icon on the lock screen would sometimes display before other information had loaded in always-on display mode.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the biometric prompt to crash, causing it to be dismissed before a user could interact with it.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the Internet Quick Settings tile to indicate that there was no Wi-Fi connection, even when the device was connected to a Wi-Fi network.


Regarding the known issues still present in the latest beta update, there are three main ones that affect the fingerprint scanning experience, Pixel Fold inner display and ‘At a Glance’ widget:

  • Sometimes when a user unlocks the device using their fingerprint, there is no haptic feedback.
  • For Pixel Fold devices, sometimes after a user unlocks the device while it’s folded, the inner display doesn’t turn on after unfolding the device.
  • The Assistant ‘At a Glance’ widget sometimes displays weather information for the wrong location.

The Google Pixel devices compatible with the update are as follows:

  • Pixel 5a
  • Pixel 6 and 6 Pro
  • Pixel 6a
  • Pixel 7 and 7 Pro
