The Google Pixel & Pixel 8 Pro are getting their first post-launch update
Do note that this update will fix the storage access issue you may have experienced. It does the same for the Pixel 6, Pixel Fold, and the Pixel Tablet. Furthermore, it also fixes the green flashes on the Pixel 7 Pro’s display.
Even the Pixel 8 series is getting a specific display fix. If you’ve experienced “screen jerkiness when touch registration becomes imprecise”, well, Google has fixed that too with this update.
What else? Well, a fix for NFC-related problems has also been released. NFC tended to occasionally cause-related services to have instability in some conditions.
You will no longer experience issues if apps request apps that are no longer installed. That bug has been squashed. Disappearing desktop icons are a thing of the past too. That tended to happen for some, when unlocking the device. The wallpaper won’t misalign anymore either.
A bunch of other Pixel phones are getting the November 2023 update
Everything we’ve listed above includes the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. Those are all the fixes that Google mentioned in its changelog. This update is also rolling out to other Pixels as we speak. It’s rolling out to the Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a 5G, Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 7a, Pixel Tablet, Pixel Fold, Pixel 8, and the Pixel 8 Pro.
At the time of writing this article, just the global builds of this update were available, so keep that in mind. Your phone will notify you once the update is available. You can always manually check too, via the Settings.
