The new month is exactly one day old and of course that means another update rollout at Google, because this time this day is also the first Monday of the new month of May 2023. It is common for Google that a new “Android Security Bulletin” comes out on this day and at the same time an update lands on the Pixel phones.
Most recently, the updates were delayed two months in a row, this time it’s different again. The new firmware that Google is now distributing will immediately land on your Pixel series smartphones. It starts for all smartphones from the Pixel 4a, which still has an update guarantee until August 2023 and is the oldest smartphone.
These are the improvements for the Pixel smartphones:
Improvements to touchscreen response under certain conditions. *[nur Pixel 7 Pro]
Fixed an issue that occasionally resulted in lock screen UI elements clipping with the home screen interface.
How to request new updates on Google Pixel: According to Google, if new system updates are officially available, they can be downloaded “immediately” and installed on the devices. To do this, open the “System” area in the settings, then “System update” and now press the “Check for updates” button.
