Google has begun rolling out the Android 15 Beta 2.2 update for eligible Pixel devices. The new build fixes a few pesky bugs, including a remaining problem with Private Space.

The update, which includes the May 2024 security patch, is rolling out over-the-air (OTA) to all supported Pixel devices: Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 7a, Pixel Tablet, Pixel Fold, Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Pixel 8a. The download size varies depending on the device; our Pixel 8 got it with a 57.08 MB file size.


Here’s the announced changelog for the new update:

  • Fixed remaining issues where creating a private space on a device for the first time removed app icons from the Home screen (or Home screens if more than one Home screen had been added). (Issue #340868295)
  • Fixed an issue with the Wallet role that prevented NFC payments from functioning in some cases. (Issue #340933949)
  • Fixed an issue where the app drawer didn’t open when swiping up. (Issue #335798568)
  • Fixed an issue with NFC observe mode that prevented NFC payments from processing in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused videos that were recorded using 10-bit HDR to have a green tint.
  • Fixed various other issues that were impacting system stability, interactivity, and connectivity.

If your Pixel device is enrolled in the Android Beta for Pixel program, you should receive an OTA notification for Beta 2.2 soon. Factory images and OTA files are also available for manual download.
