    Yeah we won't till the next update to the beta.
    Yeah... That does blow.... Also disappointing that the beta doesn't include the few fixes that also pushed with the Feb patch....

    Wonder why it's a beta if those simple patches weren't included...

    One would think if it was beta we would get some features to test that are not available yet. But it's the other way around as we are the last to get them lol

    LOL!!! I read a few places the security update finally had the radio problems fixed. But, no one responded that installed it whether they had radio problems before or after the update. Guess we'll find out when you get the next beta. You could quit the beta and install it, DJM626. But it will cause a factory reset.

    What radio problems? I'm on the 7.1.2 and didn't have radio problems before or after the beta. Also, I'm sorry to ask a dumb question, but what is this issue with the hollow bar? What exactly is a hollow bar? Can someone explain?

    Here's a question for us on BETA...

    I recently started having an issue that occurs during a phone call...

    When I make a call or receive a call, I answer... All is good.... Then after a minute or two, the call drops to speaker phone for some reason.... when I look at the screen, the speakerphone icon is not activated... Now, if I select speakerphone icon during that call, it highlights and the call stays on speakerphone... but if then turn off the speakerphone icon, the phone switches back to the headset speaker as normal and I'm good for the remainder of the call.

    This also happens when I am connected to my bluetooth car speaker... Example... I am listening to music or podcast in the car through bluetooth... a call comes in and I answer... all is good.... Then, the call will divert to speakerphone.... after the call is complete, the music or podcast resumes through bluetooth as normal...

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Security patch updates don't happen on beta. The live is on March.

    The only time it updates is when they update the beta itself.

    I just got my Pixel XL on wednesday and was debating on enrolling in the beta program as I was on it for my S7 Edge with the nougat update. But with how quick this phone is going to get stable updates I think I am going to bypass the beta stage this time around and stick with a stable release of android. This is my first pure android device, how long is it usually for a software version to go from beta to final?

    I dropped the beta and went to the March 7.1.1. Didn't gain anything by being on the beta, except a couple of annoying bugs. So no point in my book.

    That's kind of what I was thinking would end up happening with the beta. It's not like we are going from 7.1.1 to 8.0 it just an incremental update so no major feature changes, that I am aware of at least, that would make it worth dealing with a buggy system.

    I believe that this has been mentioned before and yes happens to me as well. Unfortunately when I got my replacement device (dropped my original) I signed up for the beta forgetting about this issue. So will wait it out vs resetting my device.

    Yeah, I'm probably not going to do any more betas...this was the first time I did an Android beta and I honestly was expecting there to be beta updates. Not a whole lot of point when you only get one beta, any issues someone might run across could have been fixed a month ago.

    Think I'll go back to 7.1.1 as well. It seems that a few things got fixed in the security updates for Feb that haven't been addressed in the beta, mainly the speaker static issue.

    So I have a question. If I sign up for the Beta and want to get to the stable version again do I have to do a factory reset and set my phone up all over again?

    There is an update to the beta now. It should have both the Feb. and March security updates. I'm downloading and installing now.

    Currently downloading BETA update - 7.1.2 (NPG47I) - This appears to be an update to the previous beta which was 7.1.2 (NPG05E) - File size weights in at 328.9mb on my Google Play model on the Verizon Network.

    Not much in the notes... So, who knows what lies under the hood!
