Google’s April Pixel update is here. This is not one of the major feature updates released last month, but device owners can look forward to the latest security patches and some fixes and improvements. This time, Google specifically called for improving the photo quality in certain third-party applications, and even improving the game performance on Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, as well as some fixes for multiple Pixel models, including those that can be traced back to the old version. problem. The lack of a feature decline in December.

Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 owners may like this update, it guarantees better camera quality in certain third-party applications and sounds like an increase in game performance. For more Pixel devices, it also contains some other fixes that freeze during startup and the device will show up as an offline issue when connected to a VPN-we haven’t heard of it yet, so I can’t perform them Too much introduction.

It’s not the biggest feature, but Google does specifically call it a new customization option for Pixel owners with older devices, but this is really a shame, and it doesn’t work for everyone.
According to yooj, this update includes the latest security patch from April 2021, which includes some “high” and “critical” severity vulnerabilities, although there are few Pixel-specific vulnerabilities this month. The internal number now matches in all Pixel series: RQ2A.210405.005.
Users who use Pixel 5 or Pixel 4a 5G on Verizon may see a delay in this update. Up to now, only factory and OTA pictures have been released for other operators, especially the big red color of these two phones is not included, and it may be extended to newer and more traditional versions.
It is worth mentioning that this update should start in the next one or two hours on Pixel devices that are still in its support window. These devices are Pixel 3 series, Pixel 3a series, Pixel 4 series, Pixel 4a series And Pixel 5, but impatient users can load it manually.
