    Yep, stock Launcher. And a reboot brought the status bar back. I guess it's one of those weird reboot bugs I was reading about last night. Hopefully Google has this all worked out by the time 12 is ready for public release.

    As far as bugs go there are two that I've noticed. One is a bug from the Beta 1, Goggle Assistant won't turn ON"Do Not Disturb" but will turn it off. I sent a bug report on both Betas.
    The second is just a bit annoying. When I want to dismiss an open app I just do two swipe ups in quick concession. Worked fine in Beta 1. Now in Beta 2 if I do it too fast before the screen shot and select items show up at the bottom the screen will freeze. It takes about and some screen tapping for it to unfreeze. To avoid that I have to take a beat to let those show up at the bottom to do the second swipe up. I'll have to send a bug report in this one.

    A few things I've noticed. I'm better too: material you theming works 50% of the time. Again, let's realize that it's still beta too lol. Animations are not wonky and they work beautifully. And they really are beautiful to watch. In my opinion, battery life is improved. The music controller widget looks better. All animations and auto theming look better overall. Shortcut for power button for Google Assistant works finally. Double tap on the back to launch any shortcut finally works which is a nice thing. For example, I have it to launch my gym app In order to scan in in the morning so it's one less app on my home screen so I can see my wallpaper better Multitasking / split screen mode works better. Overall, the OS feels more cohesive, smooth, fluid, faster. Moreover, would I just notice that if you're using YouTube or any other app and picture and picture mode primarily YouTube and you swipe the picture and picture to the side to do something else on your phone it pauses. And beta one it didn't. I'm not so sure if this is a problem or not. Just something to notice.

    Right now the double tap only works on the Pixel 5. The others will get it later.

    It's a unique feature for sure. I'm still getting used that one.

    I can find the setting on my Pixel 4a only if I do a search for it, and even turn it on but it doesn't do anything. So it's there it just needs to be activated by the powers that be. I'm looking forward to it.

    Yeah, I hear ya. I mean even when it's activated for you... it's a nice feature however there are soo many other ways to perform app shortcuts on Pixels though. For example, Google Assistant will do most if not all app shortcuts for you as it is already. It is a nice feature though to have.

    In Android 12, if I set my sound settings to vibrate, or silent all, I only can get a visual icon of it in my notification shade drop down. Not when I quickly glance at the top of my phone. Could you please change this so that I can see my sound settings quickly at the top of my screen like an Android 11? Thank you. I sent that to Android 12 Beta feedback.

    Well, the only thing I could think of is that the Android 12 Beta 2 battery saver breakdown usage is just an overview of which apps are using the most amount of battery. Because in Android 12 beta 1, and Android 11 every single time you fully charge your phone, the battery usage breakdown would reset so it left you with a clean slate Basically. That's the only thing I can think of.

    So I reset my phone but I had the issue with bubbles again. So I reset it again and this time installed apps a few at a time. Think the culprit was meteor swipes as it is working in messages now I haven’t installed it. Decided to only put essential apps on and no Niagara beta launcher. Keep it simple so it is easy to reset when needed. Most of the apps I need are on my Samsung anyway.

    Something I just noticed this morning on a 4a. My theming is splitting the colors to half green and half blue. Clock on lock screen is blue while volume slider is green. Reboot is no help.
    I had green checked in settings since I downloaded beta 2 and last night changed it to blue and that is when it split. No biggie, running betas is always interesting.

    Quick tap is working on my 4a 5G and I have set it for screenshot. Excellent news. Heard it only worked on the pixel 5. The gif shows the screenshot being taken after I tap the back.

    Having done 2 resets, my bugs seemed ironed out. Instagram is working, keyboard working in bubbles and I think the culprit was an app called meteor swipes. I have only installed necessary apps this time, as my Samsung has all my major apps like banking etc, and things seem to be going well finally. Am running standard pixel launcher now.

    If I install the BETA 12, when the official comes out, can I simply update to it without having to wipe my device?

    Yes. There is a process to end the Beta and then your phone updates to the regular version. But no factory reset is needed when Beta is over. But if you do decide to leave Beta early you do have to factory reset. Something to keep in mind

    The 5 was to be the first to get Quick Tap and then the other phones later. That great news that your phone got it so there's hope that the other phone will soon follow.

    My battery life has halved since I moved to the beta. It was 2 days on Android 11 and went to a day and a half on beta 1. I have reset my phone and am definitely getting less battery life than I was. Usually 50% after a day of battery I am at 46% at 18 hours and 39 minutes. I have been setting it back up so hoping it will stabilise once I have charged it a few times.
