Android 14 QPR1 Beta 2.1 Available: Here’s What’s New

Google has rolled out a new beta update for Pixel devices. This is part of feature development, which cycles quarterly. It is the first cycle of feature drops, which is running as Android 14 QPR 1 beta, and to move forward, the company has released new software as beta 2.1, followed by two beta updates, including beta 1 and beta 2. However, in the earlier beta updates, the company didn’t bring any significant features for the update. Now let’s see what we will get with the new beta update.

Android 14 QPR1 beta 2.1 brings new fixes

The Android 14 QPR1 beta 2.1 comes with firmware version number U1B2.230922.010. It is still using the October 2023 security patch, which is the latest security enhancement from Google. With the new beta update, the company has brought some new fixes related to biometric authentication, swapping SIM cards on a device, and fixing various bugs that are impacting system stability and performance.

The latest beta update will be available for select Pixel devices, including the Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 7a, Pixel Fold, Pixel Tablet, Pixel 8, and Pixel 8 Pro. However, the Pixel 8 series users have to wait for the update; it will take some time to receive it.

If you have any of the above-mentioned devices, then you can easily install the beta update on your device. The only thing you have to do is register your device in the beta program, and to do that, you have to visit the official page. Once you register your device, you can easily receive a new beta update for the Pixel devices and enjoy all the new features and improvements.
