After multiple backlash from content creators like MKBHD, as well as regular users, Google has decided to fix the previous update.
The Google Pixel 6 is currently the company’s latest smartphone. It promises to bring enhanced security, the “Material You” design language, and an overall better experience. The December update isn’t much of a good news to Pixel 6 and 6 Pro users as that update introduced numerous bugs into the phones, causing instability to the software and some regularly used apps like the phone app, to become buggy.
The update was so glitchy that even MKBHD stopped recommending the phone to most users and has since switched to the S21 Ultra. The tweet garnered 52K likes and counting. This is terrible on Google’s part as MKBHD is highly influential in the industry, others will trust his words and follow it, therefore, less sales on the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. There are users in the thread that don’t have this issue, however.
Following this backlash from MKBHD and other users, Google has finally addressed the issue and a new update is rolling out today and should be available as an OTA update on Pixel 6 and 6 Pro devices next week. Several fixes include battery drain issues, call screen issues, and finally, issues related to emergency calls. There are also fixes regarding the UI that should help smoothen the experience and make the interface much more stable. We just hope this one doesn’t introduce even more bugs as this will just fuel the flame much more.
If you’re coming from the November update, the update size should be around 215MB. Meanwhile, those that have updated to the December update would have a file size of around 40MB. System images and OTA files for the two phones are available through this link.
Or, if you’re not savvy enough, then you can just wait until it’s available over the air on your phone’s settings.
