Google has started rolling out a software update for the new Nexus 7 tablet with build number JSS15Q. The new update fixes the touchscreen problems being faced by several users.
“As a couple of you have mentioned, there’s a new system update that’s started rolling out for your Nexus 7s. This update does address the touchscreen issues discussed in this thread.”
As you would know, Android updates are typically rolled out in phases and this specifically being a bug-fixing update will be released to even smaller number of consumers at first, so that Google can check the impact before a wider release. Don’t get impatient if you don’t get the update right now, it is better to wait for the wider release.
If you have already updated your Nexus 7 tablet with JSS15Q update and you previously had touchscreen issues, do let us and other readers know in comments if the update fixed the problem.
