Nexus 7 software update to address multitouch issues Google has released a new software update for the Google Nexus 7 FHD that should help multitouch issues that have plagued users.
Right at launch, there was an annoying GPS glitch, followed by the ongoing multitouch issue. Users who were pressing more than one finger on the display at the same time were being met with a display freeze leaving the device useless temporarily.

The new update, build JSS15Q, is still Android 4.3, notes Google.

Reads Google in their 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.

Thank you for your patience while we've been working on this. As Justin mentioned, there is a new over-the-air update for Nexus 7 rolling out now that addresses the GPS issue discussed here. We look forward to hearing feedback about your GPS experience after you've received the update."
