Last week, we introduced Peek which provides a quick glance at your notifications from your lock screen. As with most first releases, there were a few bugs, namely a held wake-lock impacting battery life. Hopefully we have that sorted now along with some additional tweaks and fixes to the UI. You can now dismiss notifications from Peek with a simple swipe and as requested, a small preview of the notification's text is shown and the clock is centered.
In addition to the improvements made to Peek, 4.2 Beta 2 also includes:
- Quick settings: Dual ringer and volume tile - Custom lock screen wallpaper - Improvements to immersive mode - Improvements to the download notifier - Improved listing of apps in AppsOps - Various translations and translation fixes
Also, Pie code is finally being released (most of the kinks should be worked out).
