OTA-15 Call for Testing
The expected release date for Ubuntu Touch OTA-15 is Wednesday, December 16.
This forum post is a companion to the upcoming OTA-15 call for testing blog post.
Please post any general observations you have while testing the current image in the rc channel, as compared to OTA-14, in this thread. The current release candidate (rc) is 2020-W43
If you have any comments on any of the specific issues in the OTA-15 tracker, please post them in the issue thread so they are easier to track. OTA-15 tracker: https://github.com/orgs/ubports/projects/24
Please note that only critical and security fixes will be able to enter OTA-15 as this point, normal bug fixes and new features will need to wait for our next release. Please do not discuss normal bug fixes and new features here.
I'm in! Now it is 2020-W49 Phone=OneplusOne
My experience with UBports is very short, one week
I have. Nice logo Morph Browser! The sidebar pops out when I want it to now-- for a while it wouldn't pop out unless apps were closed. I'm a low-app sort of guy so I didn't mind, but this is better.
Device: bq e5
my device charges very slowly (after 10 hours of charging it was only on 85%). I needed to charge only once so far, but I've never experienced this before. I will try to switch back to the stable build if the next charging time doesn't improve.

About bluetooth connection and VW infotainment system, I still have the same problems: the connection is established, the rubrica is ok but the audio is not always working: as the audio channel selected is the 'wrong one'.
The times that I was able to have also the audio connected properly, after some minutes (independently if during a call or not) the connection falls, like a timeout is reached.

About bluetooth connection ...
I could not find any bluetooth improvements mentioned in the list that @UniSuperBox linked to in the first post to this thread. So I am afraid there was no basis to expect bluetooth to work better in this OTA than it did before.
EDIT: Just watched the latest Q&A, seems I missed the bluetooth issues in combination with carkits... So ignore me...
The 2nd charging was much faster, like it used to be. I rebooted the phone before charging, maybe that helped
@unisuperbox Love the new Morph Browser closing tabs. So sleek! Thanks developers.
@MV, thanks for your report. Specifically, only the calls being initiated has been fixed. There has been no change to whether or not call audio works correctly. I'm sorry for any confusion...
A new release candidate image has been released to address https://github.com/ubports/ubuntu-touch/issues/1612, "system-settings crashes on open (or when opening About)". Please update to this image and continue testing as normal.

@unisuperbox thx, just updated without any problems, hadn't any issues before tho. I dont know if it is a known issue, but when trying to add account (nextcloud, but its applicable to all) the keyboard is not appearing and cant go any further. Its @ oneplus 3t.
Greetings I'm using a Google Pixel 3a XL running Ubuntu touch . Data features are working except for receiving incoming text. incoming and outgoing calling works well runs really great on the 3AXL

Just to be sure we're on the same page:
This is the OTA15 thread ; is this an issue that occurs only in OTA15 (hence regression from OTA14 ) ?

I updated my Aquaris with 2020-W50 the 14/12. The bluetooth stopped to work properly.
Device: Aquaris E5 HD ubuntu Edition
Channel: release candidate
now no chance to connect to VolksWagen car infotainment ;
no chance to set bluetooth to visible mode
no chance to do and receive calls via bluetooth.
Before the update it worked quite good.
