Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 fixes Fingerprint Unlock issue

After surprising Pixel users with a January 2024 Pixel feature drop, Google has also released a new Android 14 based QPR beta. Android 14 QPR2 beta 3.1 is now available for eligible Pixel phones. And it comes with a bunch of bug fixes.

QPR beta builds are part of the quarterly feature drop updates. This means the Android 14 QPR2 beta builds will keep coming until the next Pixel feature drop release in March, and then QPR3 beta will begin. Google started the Android 14 QPR2 beta in November and has released three main beta updates since then.

The new Android 14 QPR2 Beta 3.1 is available for Pixel 5a and newer (if opted for beta program). The update is rolling out to all eligible Pixel phones with build number AP11.231215.009. This is a small incremental update with several bug fixes. Android security patch remains the same as Beta 3 i.e. January 2024. Below you can find all the changes.
