New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on May 19, 2021) follows:

Google showed off its plans for Android 12 at its I/O event a few hours ago and soon after dropped the Android 12 Beta 1 update for the public.

As expected, there’s a lot to unpack in the Android 12 beta 1 update, however, Google is yet to release its Material You design that has caught everyone’s attention.

But of course, a major new update also means a host of new bugs and issues that will need to be fixed with subsequent updates.

So in this article, we’ll keep tabs on all the bugs and issues that pop up on Google Pixel phones running on Android 12.

Given the fact that Android 12 is only in its beta stages, it won’t be surprising if you run into issues every now and then.

Hopefully, Google will iron out these problems over the course of the beta program that is expected to end in August, if all things go according to plan.

That said, it won’t be surprising to see some bugs and issues slip past the beta testing phase and make an appearance with the stable release.
