Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL to get one last update in 2022
With the recent release of the November security patch for Pixel devices, the 3 and 3 XL were dropped. Perhaps unsurprisingly, since we are now out of the guaranteed update period.
However, Google has said that one more update is coming for these devices, and it will be available in the first quarter of 2022.
Last year, we saw a similar situation with the Pixel 2. The device was excluded from the December feature launch, instead being given one final update a few days later. With the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, it seems Google is giving itself more time for the final update. Hopefully, this means more time for revisions, leaving legacy device users with a better overall experience.
You can get all sorts of styles and protection levels from Pitaka’s cases.
It is expected that the final Pixel 3 update will be mostly bug fixes for Android 12, rather than adding any new features. The devices already received Dynamic Colour and Material You with the last update but missed out on some features requiring the new Google Assistant.
