  • General connectivity improvements
  • Battery usage alerts

Likewise, Google Pixel phones are also set to receive Android 7.1.2 update over the few weeks. However, for Pixel and Pixel XL, the update is certainly very important as the company has addressed some huge issues and released fixes that have been a headache for users for a significant period of time or even months.

Issues like early shutdown, a pink banding on the camera, and audio popping have been coming in at a high volume from some users and with the latest update Google confirms to have fixed them.

In addition, these are the few changes and updates worth mentioning:

  • Improved fingerprint swipe performance
  • Bluetooth connectivity improvements
  • Battery usage alerts

If you carry any of the above device, make sure to avoid data charges by connecting your phone to a Wi-Fi connection to download the update.
