People had barely gotten over the New Year celebrations, but Google was ready to give them something else to be happy about. While there are no huge surprises this OTA update adds to the Pixel, Pixel 2 and Nexus devices, the significance of monthly security updates cannot be brushed aside easily.
With the growing number of hackers from all angles of the globe, it’s always necessary to stay safe. What better way to ensure your device’s security than to download and install these monthly security patches as soon as they arrive? Besides, this month’s version doesn’t just bring the usual security patches, but it also adds anti-aging tweaks to the display screens of the Google Pixel and Pixel 2, which gives you more reasons to grab the update right away.
These tweaks had not been captured in the official bulletin provided by Google, but according to Canadian carrier TELUS, the Google Pixel and Pixel 2 will not only receive the new software maintenance release, but also anti-aging display improvements. The update should also bring along stability and performance improvements to the Google phones.
Keep in mind that these updates are airborne and as such, not every Google Pixel or Pixel 2 user will get the OTA notification at the same time. If you are yet to see the notification on your phone, now is the perfect moment to check the Settings and try a manual update.
