Google begins rolling out Pixel 6 and 6 Pro’s delayed December update

Google has started rolling out Pixel 6 and 6 Pro’s latest update after one. As you may remember, the company “paused” the release of the OTA after there were reports of the software causing calls to drop and disconnect. The problem was that Google took the almost unprecedented step of removing the factory images associated with this update from its developer site.

In December, the company said the software would arrive sometime in “.” , it pushed that timeline up to today, January 14th. “The update will be available for all devices over the next week, but the exact timing may vary depending on your mobile carrier and country,” the company said. To that point, some carriers have said they will start pushing the software out from the beginning of next week. For example, after January 17, the Canadian airline Fido is aiming for the start of its rollout.

Now that the update is available, it includes all the fixes Google had planned to release in December in addition to more than a dozen new ones. Among other tweaks, you will find a solution to a problem that had caused the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro to disconnect from a WiFi network in certain situations. In addition, the update addresses a bug that had caused the phones to drain their batteries faster than expected.
