While many expected the Android 14 QPR2 preview program to kick off in December alongside the QPR1 release, Google surprised everyone with an early start in mid-November. This was followed by a quick .1 patch just days later, highlighting the accelerated development of this upcoming Android release.

Unlike developer previews, QPRs are considered relatively stable and are even labeled “suitable for general use” by Google. However, some issues have been identified in the initial release, including:

  • Occasional lack of haptic feedback after unlocking with fingerprint
  • Inner display not turning on after unfolding the Pixel Fold
  • Assistant At a Glance displaying incorrect weather location

Thankfully, the December 2023 security patch (AP11.231117.006) addresses several of these concerns:

  • Fix for incorrect Wi-Fi connection indication in the Quick Settings.

Pixel users can easily report bugs and provide feedback to Google through the pre-installed Android Beta Feedback app. This app allows users to file reports directly in the Google issue tracker and contribute to the development process. Additionally, the vibrant Android Beta community on Reddit offers a space for discussion and troubleshooting.

Android 14 QPR2 Beta 2 is currently available for a wide range of devices, including Pixel 5a, Pixel 6 series, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 series, Pixel 7a, Pixel Tablet, Pixel Fold, Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and even the Android Emulator. While most users will opt for the convenient installation via the Android Beta Program, flashing or sideloading the update remains an alternative option.
