Google is now pushing out its final update to the Pixel 2, just after the company made a few new features available to newer model phones…
Just this week, Google started to make some nifty new features previously exclusive to its Pixel 5 devices to models 3, 3a, 4, and 4a. These include “Hold for Me,” a tool that waits on the line until a person picks up, along with Adaptive Sound, which automatically adjusts sound quality to match environment, and Extreme Battery Saver. While the relatively newer models get better, the Pixel 2 has reached its ostensible end.
Google Rolls Out its Last Pixel 2 Update
The Pixel 2 is getting its very last update from Google, a delayed November security patch. This represents the end-of-life for the first Google hardware with a (somewhat) groundbreaking camera. Announced in October of 2017, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL offered two size options and significant improvements over the original Pixel phone. However, it didn’t arrive problem-free. The most notable issue affected screens that were struck with a blue color tinge.
Now, the Pixel 2 will get its last update. It’s only a matter of time before the Pixel 3 reaches its end-of-life, as Google has promised to support those devices though October of 2021, which could include Android 12.
