Android 12.4.1 released to fix some bugs

Google Android, Mobile Computing

The Android 12 beta 4 was released a few weeks ago. Along with this latest full iteration of the beta program, we received a few new features and bug fixes. Google has now released a minor update to fix a few bugs that were present in beta 4.

So far, there are no apparent changes to the Android 12.4 OS. This means the latest release is probably just to fix a few of the bugs. This release is also a very small release at only 6MB, possibly indicating a last bug squashing before the final stable release, which should be coming in mid to late September.

Beta 4.1 fixes a boot loop issue that irritated users, along with a fix that now allows your Android 12 device to connect to a VPN. Other issues addressed with this bug fix include fixing the heads-up functionality, which means that notifications now pop up immediately.

Here is the full list of bug fixes that have been release:

  • As mentioned they fixed issues where some devices ended up in a boot loop after restarting.
  • Also, they fixed the heads-up notifications not appearing.
  • They addressed issues where certain device volume controls sometimes did not work when casting.
  • They fixed Face Unlock not working on some devices.
  • They addressed the issues that kept users from granting the Nearby Devices permission to the Phone app.
  • As brought up briefly, they fixed issues where, after connecting the phone to a VPN, the phone could not connect to the internet.

If you are already part of the Android 12 beta program, you will receive an OTA to install this latest update. However, if you want to test out the latest version of Android 12, you can also manually download the OTA and flash it to your device to install and test it.

Many of us were hoping that the next release would be the ‘Release Candidate’, which would indicate that the stable release is next. However, bug fixes are a critical part of the process and cannot be overlooked.

Closing words

Google has released a minor update for Android 12 beta 4, which aims to correct a few bugs that users were experiencing. While bug fixes are critical to ensuring that a stable release is possible, I look forward to the stable release coming, hopefully, at the end of September.

    Apple was forced to add USB-C to a phone and the maccultists start talking about “revolution” and “paradigm shift” (as if USB phones had never come out before). It’s so ridiculous it’s reminiscent of comedians doing the “stepped on a water hose” stunt – that was at least somehow funny a hundred years ago.
    Reading this on a site that used to be a technical resource is especially ridiculous.
    How pathetic

    “An iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will mean more than you think”

    That Apple can finally stop hindering progress if spanked hard enough ?

    I’m thrilled to see Instagram taking steps to enhance the user experience with features like Live Activities. This update is a game-changer, especially for those who frequently upload content on the platform.

    The ability to track upload progress in the background is a simple yet incredibly useful addition. It not only keeps users informed about the status of their uploads but also allows for a more seamless experience on the platform. No more constantly checking if your post has successfully uploaded or worrying about interrupted uploads due to a weak signal.

    As an active Instagram user, this feature is a relief. It showcases Instagram’s commitment to improving user satisfaction and addressing common pain points. It’s all about making the platform more user-friendly, and this feature certainly accomplishes that.

    I can’t wait to try out Live Activities and enjoy a stress-free posting experience. Kudos to Instagram for continually innovating and making our social media lives easier!

    Keep up the great work, Instagram, and thanks to ghacks for keeping us in the loop with the latest tech updates!
