- It also includes security fixes for April.
Google released another small but notable revision of the Android 12 Developer Preview before a third milestone. 9to5Google reports that the company released Android 12 DP2.2 with a number of key fixes for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and security.
This latest Android 12 DP2 update fixes crashes when trying to access Bluetooth settings and removes false warnings of poor Bluetooth call quality. DP2.2 also fixes a bug that prevents Android from saving Wi-Fi passwords.

This DP2 update also brings the April 2021 security patch to Android 12. You won’t see any big changes, but it will make your device more secure while using Google’s pre-release software.
Further improvements in the Android 12 DP2 update fix issues. Widgets can no longer go away when you install a wireless update. The on-screen keyboard does not risk activating the notification shadow. Shared videos are now encoded correctly, and Codec 2.0 shouldn’t crash apps on some hardware components.
As with DP2.1, the 2.2 update is more of a stopgap until Android 12 Developer Preview 3 is available later in April. You should also avoid doing this if you are using this on your main phone or any other device that you absolutely must. This is intended for app manufacturers who want to prepare titles for Android 12. You should probably wait until at least the first Android 12 public beta (expected in May) if you’re a regular user, and you may still see significant bugs until the final version is ready later in 2021.
