You shouldn’t expect any additional updates for your Pixel 3. Google is issuing one more security upgrade to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, according to Esper’s Mishaal Rahman. The company previously stated that the Pixel 3 would receive one more update in the first quarter of 2022. Active Noon verified that this is the device’s final update.
It’s unclear what the patch is supposed to address.
DarkPlayer, on the other hand, noticed that the build ID matched that of an October patch for Verizon’s newer Pixel phones. This is not an up-to-date patch, but rather a catch-up release.
No more new updates for Google pixel 3
You can expect more if you have a recent Pixel, at least. Google has posted a February 2022 update for the Pixel 3a and newer phones. The revision tackles several significant problems, including reboots during camera use, Bluetooth audio disconnection and quality problems, carrier-specific connection woes and keyboards that override input text in some cases.
This won’t thrill you if you’re fond of the Pixel 3 — you’ll have to upgrade if you want up-to-the-minute security fixes. Don’t fret if you have a Pixel 6, though. Google has promised five years of security updates for its latest phone line, so you might not have to worry about patches until 2026.
