Google issues November software update for Pixel 2 phones

Google issues November software update for Pixel 2 phones

Google has started rolling out a November software update for the Pixel phones. In addition to patches to security vulnerabilities and a handful of functional changes, this November update also contains enhancements and tweaks to address the Pixel 2 XL’s screen colors and burn-in issues.

Google, in the Pixel User Community forum (emphasis ours):

The November software update for Pixel is rolling out starting today, and it will reach all devices over the next week. This update includes some of the enhancements we posted about on October 26, such as the new Saturated color mode for Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, a fix for the faint clicking noise heard in some Pixel 2s, and other bug and security updates. As we mentioned in our deeper dive, this update also brings planned UI changes which extend the life of the OLED display, including a fade out of the navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen and an update to maximum brightness. These features have been carefully designed so as not to detract from the user experience. Since all OLED displays experience some degree of decay over time, we’ll continue to make enhancements which maximize the life of your Pixel screen.

Those still on the fence about the Pixel 2 XL (our review here), are you now willing to give the phone a shot?

'Functional updates' in the Nov patch that will make the Pixel 2 phones run that bit smoother.
