Android December security update. If you are a proud owner of a Pixel phone, you need to make sure you have the latest fixes, patches, and features available on your device. However, as we are always deploying updates, we may not have updated them yet.
Which pixels are getting the December update?
For Pixel, the December update will naturally apply to Google’s Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 4 smartphones and XL versions. But if you have a Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL, you don’t have to check for updates today. You will have to wait until next week to catch it. That’s how it is.
And if you’re still using the original Google Pixel or Pixel XL, this is the last update period. But this is not surprising. When the device was released, Google promised two years of Android version updates and three years of security updates. We got the latter for the October security patch, and Google skipped the November update for the device to do one final finish today.
