With the latest Android 13 beta, Google seems to have fixed the issues with the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro’s fingerprint reader, which has been heavily criticized since the smartphones were released almost a year ago.
Since their launch last year, Pixel 6 and 6 Pro suffer from many bugs which Google is trying to fix little by little. One of them concerns the under-screen fingerprint reader, which is often considered too slow by users. Although Google quickly released an update that was supposed to improve the sensor’s performance, some users still reported delays or errors that prevented them from using it.
According to some Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners, Google finally seems to be correcting that situation using the latest version of Android 13 beta 4.1. As a reminder, Google had launched this new version a few days ago to bring some fixes before the launch of the stable version next September, but no new features have been seen in this version.
The Pixel 6’s fingerprint sensor finally works properly
Users who are still having problems with the fingerprint sensor of the smartphone should therefore quickly install the fourth beta of Android 13, or just wait for the quiet release next month. In addition to better performance on the fingerprint reader, some users even report that their smartphone freedom has improvedwhich is not normal after updating to a new version of Android.
Now that Google has fixed one of the Pixel 6’s biggest flaws, the American company should focus on the Pixel 6a, which also suffers from a major flaw in the fingerprint sensor, although it is different from previous models. A few days ago, we reported that a bug in the fingerprint reader of a few smartphones allowed anyone to unlock them.
Unfortunately, the first update number SD2A.220601.00 that was sent right after launch did not fix this critical security flaw. We are also looking forward to it new August security patch for Google smartphones.
