Reports about the issue started to surface on Reddit, where some users say they are unable to use the Pixel’s Double-Tap feature after installing Android 13 QPR1 Beta 3:
I have the Double-Tap gesture on the back of my Pixel 7 Pro to open the camera app. It worked fine before installing the beta and I thought it was still working. But the next day, when I put on a new case, the Double-Tap stopped working.
Reddit user “skipres” also claims that he tried to remove the phone case and tried to trigger the gesture in various ways, but got no response.
Another Reddit user claims that he was able to solve the problem by disabling Double-Tap, restarting the phone, enabling the feature again and restarting the smartphone once again.
However, the above steps don’t seem to work for everyone, as other users say the problem still persists.
Anyway, it is understandable that we find bugs in a software in beta version, so it is not recommended to install it on your main mobile.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro is not yet available in Brazilian stores. To be notified when it arrives.
