Google Rolls Out Android 11 Beta 1.5 To Fix Google Pay, Gesture Navigation Issues and More

It was just last week that Google released the first Android 11 beta which enticed a handful of brands to get into the beta program with some of their flagship devices. The software giant is now rolling out Android 11 Beta 1.5, which is just an incremental update.

The new beta comes with build number RPB1.200504.020. This update fixes Google Pay issues which made the payment app unusable in the previous beta build. Another bug fixed is in relation with gesture navigation that results to crashing of device while app switching is also fixed.

Below is the official changelog of Android 11 Beta 1.5:


  • Devices no longer crash (reboot) while using gesture navigation to switch apps in different orientations while rotating the device at the same time.
  • On Pixel 3 and 3a, users setting up devices after reset can now activate a pSim service if the phone is currently using an eSIM service.
  • Fixed issues that users were having when using contactless payments through Google Pay.


  • The system no longer incorrectly enforces the Bluetooth privileged permission for RemoveBond. This resolves issues that could affect pairing, unpairing, and bond reset flows for Bluetooth devices, such as for Forget Watch on Wear OS devices.

The build comes with issues in terms of Android Auto projection and if that’s something you use regularly, it is advisable you stick to the stable builds of Android 10 for now. However, if you’re interested, you may download the OTA image from the links below:
