Asus Releases ZenFone 2 Stability Update

If you are rolling with the Asus ZenFone 2, there is a new update out for your phone.  Now before you get all excited, no, this is not the Android Marshmallow update that is slated to come to it (along with several other Asus devices) but rather a stability update to Android Lollipop.

The update is version 2.20.40.164_20160107_6983(MR9.13) and it was released yesterday into the wild.  The update is really focused on bringing fixes and improvements to the device although there is a new feature that adds the ability to change the screenshot sound settings.  The update is less than 100MB so it can easily be downloaded via Wi-Fi or cellular data.  In all there are 14 updates in the release which I’ve outlined after the break.

According to Asus, here is what is fixed in this release.

1.Fixed video sound issue.
2.Fixed google play stop service .

10.Improve ASUS ZenUI Launcher stability
11.Improve Cell Broadcast stability
12.Fix the failure to share Photo Collage picture via Email

Some users will undoubtedly be disappointed that this isn’t the Marshmallow update but equally, it is good to see Asus continue to improve the device on its current platform to improve the overall user experience.
