The July update is now live for numerous Pixel smartphones. While the Pixel 2 series stopped receiving updates last year, the Pixel 3 series onwards is eligible for this month's update. The July update contains a few device-specific bug fixes and addresses numerous security vulnerabilities with Google's handsets.

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. You can read what security changes Google has made this month via the links below.
