App switcher jumping around

Star III
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:
Model Name: Zenfone 9 16/256GB
Firmware Version: WW_32.2030.2030.26
Rooted or not: Not
Frequency of Occurrence: Intermittent, daily
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Unrelated, system wide
In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.
With apps open, whenever opening the app switcher (bottom right navigation button for people who use the nav buttons), it will initially open to show you one recent app but then very quickly update and change the app shown to another recent app. Often this is two or three apps back in your opened apps history.
For example, if I open Chrome, Whatsapp, Gmail, then Whatsapp again, and then hit the app switcher:
First Gmail may be displayed as expected as it was the previously used app. But it may then suddenly switch to showing me Chrome, with the other two apps to the right
This seems to happen more frequently with more apps open, and doesn't happen all the time. It happens just slowly enough to notice it, but also slowly enough that you end up clicking the wrong app due to expecting android to always show the previous app as on other phones.
Could this please be fixed?

Same issue here

Also, when re opening apps like WhatsApp, the view is scrolled backwards in the chat

Also, usually it should be possible to tap the app switcher butten twice quickly, it then should switch to the previous app immediatly. This way it's easy to switch back and forth between two apps in quickly.
This also does not work most of the times. When I try to do this, I'm oft back at the homescreen which makes no sense at all.
When I tap it twice slowly, and afterwards quickly, it seems to work tough. So It's more of an "bug at first use".

Hey everyone,
The issue will be addressed in the upcoming updates.

An update on this issue since the latest 2050 patch:

The app switch button now displays the app I am currently in when pressed, consistently. This is better than before, but not the expected behaviour - I would expect to have the previously used app shown in the preview.
I can also still see that it looks like the preview is redrawn suddenly after opening it when hitting the button.

I no longer have the app switching jumping around randomly.
Double tapping the app switch button does now take me back to the previous app as expected.
I no longer have the issue where in apps like whatsapp I am scrolled backward in the chat when switching to them.
