A beta 3 of Android 12L is on the way
For some time, Google has created the Android Beta program, to allow developers, producers and enthusiasts to preview the new versions of the green robot but due to some difficulties, probably linked to the new Tensor chipset, it had not yet included the new ones. flagships presented last October.
The timely release of security patches in February, which occurred at the same time as the other supported models, had foreshadowed that the most important problems were solved and that the Pixel 6s were also ready for the beta version. On the other hand, Google should release the final version of Android 12L during the month of March, as we reported today, and it would be strange to launch it without first having released a beta version.
Downloads for Google Pixel
We remind you that a release in February is also included in the timeline, which Google has indicated as Beta 3, incremental compared to the versions already released, dedicated to final tests for apps, SDKs and libraries.
Shortly after the opening of the beta program for Google Pixel 6, the third beta of Android 12L was released, currently available for Pixel versions 3a to 6, all those currently supported by Google. The new version of Android 12L, as expected from the timeline, introduces only some bug fixes, without bringing substantial news.
In detail, an issue that prevented the display of the weather forecast in the At a glance widget, an issue that prevented the display of the screen shutdown animation and a crash of the system launcher when starting the split-screen mode has been fixed.
For beta program participants, the rollout has already started and in the next few hours, it will be possible to download the update. For those wishing to proceed with manual installation, the factory images are already available to use for installation, as well as the OTA files for updating existing versions, in this case also for Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro.
