It’s the beginning of the month, and you know what that means. Google is delivering the November update to its Pixel phones. It’s a routine monthly update, so it brings some bug fixes to the software and that’s pretty much it, according to a new report.
If you’re looking to update your phone to this latest update, you should get a notification letting you know. However, if you missed the notification, then you’ll have to get to the update screen manually.
Go to your settings and scroll down to the System button at the bottom. On the resulting screen, look for the Update section. When you tap on that button, you’ll see a screen letting you know that you have an update. If it says that your phone is up to date, tap on the Search for update button at the bottom of the screen. Your phone will do a search to see if there’s an update.
If your phone finds the update, tap on the Update and your phone will start downloading the update. It will download and install it in the background.
Here’s what the November Pixel update fixed
As stated, this is a routine update, so there aren’t any new features or major upgrades; we’re just talking about bug fixes. The update made it to all Pixel devices as old as the Pixel 4a 5G. This phone is pretty much on its final leg, so the November update could be its final.
The update fixed the issue when an app requests an app that’s been uninstalled. Also, it brought a fix for the issue affecting users with multiple accounts.
There was an issue where the desktop icons would disappear after you unlocked your device. Well, that one’s fixed. Also, the update fixed the issue where the wallpaper would be misaligned.
Display, NFC, and Touch
Pixel device had an issue with the screen flashing green when turned off, NFC acting up, and screen jerkiness when touching the screen. All three of those issues were fixed.
Be sure to install this update for these fixes, and be on the lookout for the update for the feature drop coming next month.
