The past few months have not been fun for Pixel 6 users after the December update. It was designed to fix bugs in previous software versions, but ended up causing signal problems for users worldwide. It even caused Google to disable some of its Pixel-exclusive features due to a bug, while some users were updated to December and others were left on the November update until Google could fix all issues with a delayed December update – This will never come for those who are stuck on the November update.
The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro update finally started rolling out today, January 14, as Google promised, and should be rolling out to all Pixel 6 devices next week. Meanwhile, the January update started rolling out to older Pixel users on January 4.
