Google to fix multi-touch issues of Nexus 7 Tablets with Firmware Update

Google started to fix the multi-touch bug of new Nexus 7 tablets with firmware update.
Few weeks back it was reported that users of Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet were having multi-touch issues. Even the company itself acknowledged the issues around a week back. But it seems that the search engine giant has already started addressing it to enhance the overall functionality of the Nexus 7 (2013) tablets.

Google recently announced that it is in the final process of rolling out an Android 4.3 update with build number JSS15Q, and this update will surely fix the annoying multi-touch bug. Currently this brand new update is being rolled out over-the-air (OTA) for the latest version of the Nexus 7 tablets.


Paul Wilcox, who is a reputed member of Google's support staff, stated the following while answering to a question in Google Product Forum. "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. 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."

It has to be mentioned here that earlier many leading tech journals and popular web publications published a detailed post on the several issues that the coveted users were having. One of the most problematic bugs was indeed the erratic performance of multi-touch functionality on the display of this newly-launched tablet.

It was suspected that the problem had arrived with the installation of second OTA JSS15J on the Nexus 7 (2013). As per some reports, the several Nexus 7 users are experiencing problems with the GPS feature too on their tablets. However, as of now Google didn’t disclose whether the new update would address this issue as well or not.

Last month we reported here when Google launched its 2nd gen Nexus 7 tablet in the markets of the United States of America (USA). This is indeed an awesome addition to the tablets base, and it has readily attracted millions of tablet lovers with its superb design and mind-blowing features. This tablet is currently featuring two different variants 16GB ($229) and 32GB ($269). It’s worth to be added here that both the variants are lacking the expandable storage options. It is currently available for sale for the US citizens.


The 2nd generation Nexus 7 tablet features 7-inch full HD display screen and a hi-fi processor that claims to provide really fast experiences to the users. It offers screen resolution power of 1920*1200 pixels while sporting a 2GB RAM in it. It has a 5-megapixel rear shooter and a 1.2-megapixel front facing camera to make things even better.

We think that Google is trying its level best to establish the new Nexus 7 tablet as the best tablet of the world, and that is the reason why it is fixing out the issues as early as possible. This is a very good thing indeed, and it will surely boost up the overall sales of these tablets for sure.
