Android 11 Beta 1.5 update fixes bugs with Google Pay and Bluetooth

Android 11 dial

One week after unleashing Android 11 Beta 1, Google has begun rolling out a small update for beta testers.

Android 11 Beta 1.5 is now available, bringing with it a fix for the issues that some testers were having making contactless payments with Google Pay. The update also squashes a bug that caused some devices to crash while using gesture navigation to switch apps in different orientations while rotating the device at the same time.

Google says that Pixel 3 and 3a owners setting up devices after reset can now activate a pSIM service if the phone is currently using an eSIM service, too. And this update also fixes a bug that incorrectly enforced the Bluetooth privileged permission for RemoveBond, an issue that could affect pairing and unpairing for Bluetooth devices.

Finally, the Android 11 Beta 1.5 update does have a couple known issues related to Android Auto that testers should be aware of. They include a bug with audio routing that may cause music to be played on the phone’s speaker instead of the vehicle speakers when playing music or using navigation. This bug will be fixed in an Android Auto update coming later this month.

There’s also a bug that may cause Android Auto projection to not start after plugging in for the first time. Google says it’s looking into this issue.

If you’re running the Android 11 Beta and are enrolled in the Android Beta Program, you should get this update over the air soon. Google is also offering factory images that you can manually flash if you’d rather update that way.

Here’s the build info for the Android 11 Beta 1.5 release:
