Google has kicked off the new month with a new Android 15 bug-fixing beta update. This is Android 15 beta 2.2, so it's not a full beta 3 update, and will likely arrive later this month. The update is simply aimed at fixing some annoying bugs that Google has been struggling with since the initial release of Beta 2 at I/O last month.

Android 15 Beta 2.2 Build Information: The notable new build is AP31.240426.023.B4, which is available for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, Pixel 7a, Pixel Fold, Pixel Tablet, Pixel 8, 8 Pro, and Pixel 8a. Google has already released the factory image and OTA file in case you want to flash it right away. You can also wait for the message to arrive wirelessly to your phone, but this can happen at any time.

Android 15 Beta 2.2 bug fixes: For bug fixes, Google is still trying to fix Private Space bugs that were removing Home screen apps. They think they’ve got it this time around. They also addressed a Wallet and NFC issue, another with the app drawer not swiping up, green tints in 10-bit HDR videos, and overall stability/connectivity/interactivity.

  • Fixed remaining issues where creating a private space on a device for the first time removed app icons from the Home screen (or Home screens if more than one Home screen had been added). (Issue #340868295)
  • Fixed an issue with the Wallet role that prevented NFC payments from functioning in some cases. (Issue #340933949)
  • Fixed an issue where the app drawer didn’t open when swiping up. (Issue #335798568)
  • Fixed an issue with NFC observe mode that prevented NFC payments from processing in some cases.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused videos that were recorded using 10-bit HDR to have a green tint.
  • Fixed various other issues that were impacting system stability, interactivity, and connectivity.

Again, the update should rollout over the air shortly, or you can manually update right away.
