Google Fixes Problems, Brings Pixel 4 Features to Older Pixels

Walmart's extensive Cyber Monday sale comes with big discounts on iPhones Samsung devices and more

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.

For first time, Iran admits security forces killed protesters
London-based human rights group Amnesty International said on Monday that at least 208 people were killed in the crackdown. Although there are no official figures, Fars news agency said more than 1,000 protesters have been arrested.

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.
