Has anyone signed up for the Android 12 Beta yet? I'm reading something about issues with Unlocked Pixel Phones. I bought my 4XL from Verizon. I assume that it is a Locked phone?

I've downloaded and installed the Beta 12. Everything seems to be working just fine. So, no issues with the Unlocked issue that some have been experiencing. Thanks!

Good deal. I usually wait for the second public beta and then I'll download it and start running that. I read that Assistant doesn't work on the first beta this time around

Downloaded and installed on my P5. All seems to be working well for a beta 1 but it's not my daily driver so haven't put it thru it's paces.

I jumped on Beta 2 last night. Installed fine and then it was horrible. I thought I was going to factory reset and revert back to 11. GMail crashed, Calendar crashed, Amazon crashed, my bank app crashed, lots of apps I need every day kept crashing. There were very few apps that opened. I found an article that said to disable > then re-enable Android System Webview. Tried that, didn't work.

Then I found an old article about Gmail crashes. It's definitely related to Android System Webview. But the fix for me was: open Play store > Android Webview > Uninstall (doesn't really uninstall the app, just reverts back to the factory version) > restart phone > back to Play store > update Android Webview > Gmail and many other apps are working again. Fingers crossed this was the only major issue for me on Beta 2
Everything seems to be OK since then, working pretty good this morning.

I think it's only open to Pixel phones right now

Other than jittery transitions, my 4XL has been fine. I'm not thrilled with 12 just yet.

Same here, transitions are pretty jittery in Beta 2. I'm sure Google will fix that soon. 12 is definitely different. I can imagine that a lot of people are not going to like Android 12.

It seems that getting to some of the controls and settings takes more steps, than less. So far, not as user friendly as it should be. Especially for the average user.
