The latest Android 14 public beta, known as Beta 2.1, should provide a more accurate experience than previous versions. However, some reports pointed out some errors, which would affect the camera app in particular.
Specifically, according to a test by android Police, the app would crash when users try to switch to the ultra wide angle lens. The situation would then worsen – to the point of completely shutting down the software – if they try to return to the main objective. Another critical point, however, would concern the video mode: In fact, users would be reached by a notice informing them of the possibility of not saving the last video made. These issues would affect devices from Pixel 6 and 7 series running Android 14 Beta 2.1.
Fortunately, we can limit these critical issues by there would be solutions. One of them is to launch the camera app, then switch to portrait mode, then go back to standard mode. After this procedure, the software should no longer crash when attempting to switch from prime to ultra-wide lenses.
However, another solution envisages taking a photo immediately using the main photographic sensor.
However, Google has provided these solutions for users who do not wish to implement them the ability to uninstall the beta and revert to the stable version of Android 13. Of course, there is hope that the company can overcome these problems.
