Google has today released Android 14 Beta 1.1. As the rather weird naming implies, this is a mere small update to the first beta, which came out a couple of weeks ago. The next, second beta is scheduled for next month, so you might be wondering why Google would go through the trouble of releasing an intermediary version right now.
The answer is bugs. Apparently the company thought some of the bugs running around in Beta 1 were too annoying to let be until Beta 2 comes around, and that's how Beta 1.1 came about.
The new build is labeled UPB1.230309.017.A1 for Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a units on Verizon, and UPB1.230309.017 for all others. It's going out over-the-air to the Pixel 4a 5G and later models which are enrolled in the Android Beta Program. As usual with Google updates, expect the rollout to take at least a few days, if not more, to reach all eligible devices.
Google highlights a few of the bugs that have been squashed:
Google disabled 5G for Pixel 6 in Finland (I was visiting family there recently) so it could be a valid point. It wasn't a technical issue, it was a software restriction.
