    Google Officially Updates Us On Froyo Status – FRF72 Was Not Final, Release Date Still Unknown, "On Its Way Shortly"


    Posted by Artem Russakovskii in Froyo 2.2, News

    We’ve been watching the semi-official "when will Froyo come out" thread at Google support forums for quite a while, and lately have been seeing more and more unhappy Nexus One and other Android users, complaining about Google’s failure to deliver Froyo in a promised "within a few weeks" timeline.

    Today, after the release of iOS, things have really heated up – there are now over 1275 responses to the thread, all wanting to know the same thing – when will Froyo finally come out?


    To ease up the tension, from time to time, Google’s awesome PR machine in the form of a random Google employee or 2 pops into the forum to provide an update.

    About half an hour ago, another such sighting was reported. Allow us to present you with the official latest word on Froyo launch:

    Hey guys,

    Just dropping in to let you know that the FRF72 build that is floating around is not the official update. The Android team is feverishly working to get a final version out the door, but like passion-ate has mentioned this will only happen once a release candidate meets our quality criteria.

    Since today is the Summer Solstice[​IMG], we know things will be heating up a bit so hopefully Froyo will be on its way shortly. Thanks for your continued patience!
    -Ry Guy
    So… that tells us… not very much but we now know 2 things:

    • FRF72, which was the latest official leaked Froyo build, was not the final version (we kind of already suspected that)
    • and Froyo is still not ready (doh!)
    So, while not saying much, Ry Guy actually provided a good status update. I seriously suggest everyone to relax and let Google do what it does best – release software (their PR arm is a whole other business, especially in Android’s case).
    Seriously – don’t get in with the panic/hype. Just be patient.

    That is good news. FRF72 is buggy. Camera is all strange now and has anyone tried to stream pandora and use nav? Nav pauses pandora but never restarts it... Plus When a audio source is "unplugged" your music does not get paused... The way they did these things in 2.1 was much better :p They still have wrinkles to iron out.

    So, Google might have it ready "shortly", but what about Moto/VZW?
