Google Fixes Problems, Brings Pixel 4 Features to Older Pixels

Android 10 Live Caption functionality on the Google Pixel 4

Google released the December security patch for its Pixel range yesterday while notoriously skipping its newest Pixel 4 duo.

Otherwise, Google has also delivered two more Pixel 4 tweaks via the December update that apply to earlier Pixel phones as well.

These aren't the only Pixel 4 fixes coming though, as Google says the update "includes hundreds of various fixes and improvements across many areas including performance, stability, camera, display and face unlock". Tapping App info on the pop-up message will take you to the launcher's settings; from there, you can click on the three-dot menu to uninstall updates.

Student, Officer Injured in Another High School Shooting
An armed student at Oshkosh West High School in Wisconsin confronted a school resource officer on Tuesday, according to police. The incident occurred just a week after a threat of school shooting was found on a bathroom mirror at Laguna Middle School .

The Pixel 4 family has been far more reliable than previous Pixel generations, all of which were bedeviled by one to several high-profile issues. The update included the usual security patches along with various bug fixes. For some of the Redditors, uninstalling the launcher's updates fixed the issue, saving them from having to wipe out their phones entirely. Also, flickering display in "different usage cases" has been addressed, while there is improved "haptic vibration intensity in certain cases".

Outside of Google, users on Reddit are reporting that the December 2019 Pixel Security Update brings some Pixel 4 features-like Live Captions, Customize Pixel, and various gestures-to older Pixel 2, 3, and 3a handsets (though feature availability varies by model).

The phones who have started receiving the update are the original Pixel and Pixel XL, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL and the Pixel 3a and 3a XL.
