Google Rolls Out Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 Update for Pixel Phones. Google has started rolling out the Android 14 Quarterly Platform Release (QPR) 2 Beta 3.1 update for compatible Pixel phones. Coming just two weeks after the last major QPR2 beta release, this update focuses primarily on squashing bugs and improving stability.

The Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 update is rolling out over the air with the build number AP11.231215.009. It is compatible with all Pixel phones, starting from the Pixel 5a to the Pixel 8 Pro, including the Pixel Fold and Pixel Tablet. The OTA update is about 122MB in size.

No major user-facing changes are included in this release. However, there are a ton of bug fixes and optimizations under the hood across the operating system. Many users had complained of issues related to fingerprint unlocking, app icon placement, display rendering, audio quality, and more on Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.

Official Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 changelog per Google:

  • Fixed fingerprint unlock issues with always-on display
  • Addressed problems with the height of the Quick Settings Bluetooth device list
  • Fixed wrong default search engine selections in some cases
  • Resolved Quick Settings display area not updating correctly
  • Improved microphone audio quality during calls and recording
  • Fixed missing translations across multiple languages
  • Fixed overlay issues in landscape orientation and picture-in-picture mode
  • Resolved icon scaling problems for foldable devices
  • Addressed display flickering on foldable devices
  • Fixed tablet-specific issues like flashing gray screens and small navigation buttons
  • General improvements to system stability, connectivity, camera, and accessibility

The Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 update is rolling out incrementally to users enrolled in the beta program in the coming days. Users can manually check for the update by heading to Settings > System > System updates.

However, Google recommends proceeding with caution, especially on primary devices, as beta builds can be unstable. For the best experience, the public Android 14 QPR2 stable update is expected soon.
