This is an unusual first half of the month. Google Pixel users have hardly received any updates so far. And if so, it has only been very small updates.
Monthly pixel update is late
The first half of August is almost over. But the expected updates have not yet been announced and of course not yet rolled out. The basis is of course the monthly security update, which we have not received so far. Instead, there has only been a very small bug fix update for three Pixel 6 devices so far.
Google has at least said publicly that the major August update will be delayed. By a few weeks, so the not particularly precise statement. Next Monday we already have the third Monday of the month, maybe there will be more for us then.
Google system updates are also a long time coming
And in the area of Google system updates, there is still rather bad news. If we look at Google’s special page, where the company shares the changelog and other information about the rollout with us, nothing has changed there since July.
Although parts of the July updates were only delivered a few days ago, we are still waiting for innovations and improvements for August. Possibly more will happen here in the coming days, when the second half of the month begins.
You can read about the new features of the Google System Updates for our devices in July here.
Android 13 not far away: Don’t expect too much in August
But I almost believe that we won’t experience so much more in August. Android 13 is scheduled for next September, and Google is likely to be making the final arrangements for this internally. The new updates will appear for devices from Pixel 4 – there are no further details yet.
