Google releases software fix for Nexus 7 touchscreen glitches

updated 12:37 pm EDT, Thu August 22, 2013

GPS issues remain

Google has released a software update for its second-generation Nexus 7 tablet, responding to customer complaints over touchscreen issues. The Android 4.3 build, referred to as JSS15Q, appears to be limited to the touchscreen fix, rather than bringing additional features or addressing separate issues that have been reported with GPS functionality.

"As a couple of you have mentioned, there's a new system update that's started rolling out for your Nexus 7s," said Google representative Paul Wilcox in a Google Product Forums thread that was spotted by Droid-Life. "This update does address the touchscreen issues discussed in this thread. If you're one of the people experiencing touchscreen issues, please let us know how it's going after you've received and installed the update."

Affected devices were said to exhibit poor touch sensitivity and unpredictable behavior such as touches registered when a user's hands are not on the screen.

Google acknowledged the touchscreen issue earlier this month and promised to release a fix, however some users are still complaining of innacurate or malfunctioning GPS location and other issues related to random crashing and rebooting. The company has yet to fully detail its plans to fix the additional problems.
