Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2 Bug Fix Update for Pixels
Google has begun the rollout of a minor bug fix update to Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2 to eligible Pixel devices enrolled in the Android Beta for Pixel program. This release addresses issues with biometrics, SIM card swapping, and other issues affecting stability and performance.
Surprisingly, the newly released Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro devices will not be receiving this update today, and according to Google will arrive to those devices at a later time.
- Fixed issues with biometric authentication, such as an issue that sometimes prevented the under-display fingerprint sensor from activating while always-on display features were enabled.
- Fixed an issue where, in some cases after swapping SIM cards on a device, the device couldn’t connect to cellular service.
- Fixed various issues that were impacting system stability and performance.
As usual, this update is being offered over-the-air (OTA) first to suitable devices, but will eventually be installed automatically within five days. Additionally, if you want to apply the update immediately, you can check for it by navigating to the new Android 14 Pixel updates page that now lives within Settings > System > System updates.

Please note that the Android 14 Beta program is still under development, and although by trying out beta software you do get to enjoy some new features early, you may also experience some bugs or glitches. If you’re not comfortable with that, you should remain with the official release of Android 14.
