Google rolls out July update to Pixel 3, Pixel 4 and Pixel 5 devices containing bug fixes and security improvements
Google has begun issuing its July update to eligible Pixel smartphones. Typically, Google rolls out its monthly updates on the first Monday of the month, but the observance of Independence Day in the US prevented it from doing so this month. The new build numbers for this month are as follows:
- Pixel 3 (XL) - RQ3A.210705.001
- Pixel 3a (XL) - RQ3A.210705.001
- Pixel 4 (XL) - RQ3A.210705.001
- Pixel 4a - RQ3A.210705.001
- Pixel 4a (5G) - RQ3A.210705.001
- Pixel 5 - RQ3A.210705.001
While this month's update is not a Feature Drop like last month, it introduces a few notable changes for Pixel smartphones. Specifically, Google has released a fix that prevents continued device reboots under certain conditions. The company has not specified what conditions these were, though. Likewise, this month's update enables VoLTE support on certain unspecified mobile networks.
Not only has Google published the changes that it has made to Pixel smartphones today, but it has also published its latest Android Security Bulletin. Google has addressed 10 Pixel-specific security vulnerabilities this month, along with numerous others for all smartphones running recent versions of Android.
