Google Pixel and Pixel XL: December update is the last

Who says the beginning of the month says Android security update. On Tuesday, December 3, all Google Pixel welcomes this new update. Little pinch to the heart nevertheless, since it will be the last for the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Google’s first generation of Pixel phones. Both smartphones were launched by Google in 2016. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be able to enjoy these patches an extra year, but 2020 will also be their last year of follow-up.

  • Fix for static noise in Spotify – Pixel 4 and 4 XL

    I was hoping that there was a fix on my pixel xl about shutting down early. It shuts down at 30%, 40%, 50% and lately at 60%.
