Pixel owners on T-Mobile are finally up to date
This would seem to confirm the idea that the reason for missing updates for Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 users on T-Mobile had to do with some improvements the carrier was making to its 5G network. Apparently, T-Mobile was working on carrier aggregation which combines two channels of spectrum to create more bandwidth for greater capacity and faster data speeds. Whatever the reason, it looks like T-Mobile subscribers are now up to date.
So let’s move on to the functional updates. These are the bugs that are exterminated by the update:
Fixed an issue preventing touch interaction with the braille keyboard under certain conditions (for all Pixel models receiving the update).
Fixed an issue sometimes causing instability when Clear Calling is enabled under certain conditions (for Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro).
Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented connection with certain Bluetooth devices or accessories (for all Pixel models receiving the update).
Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented the work profile calendar information from updating in the background (for all Pixel models receiving the update).
To download and install the update, go to Settings > System > System update and follow the instructions. It is worth pointing out that last week, Google released the latest Android 13 QPR2 Beta 3 update. The stable version of this beta, which is the quarterly March pixel feature drop, will be released on March 6.
Android 14 developer preview expected to launch this month
The first developer preview of Android 14 is expected to be released this month, followed by the launch of the Android 14 beta program. We recommend that if you are currently on the Android 13 QPR2 beta, you wait for the release of the stable release next month. Once you’ve installed the March Drop feature (and not a second before), deactivate the beta program and return to stable updates. You have about a week after installing the stable release to opt out of the beta program without having to wipe your device.
Remember that beta software is not stable. That means it’s unstable, and apps and features you rely on for work or your personal life may not work. And the battery life might not be satisfactory. The first time to install an Android 14 beta is when the software has reached platform stability. This happens after the developer APIs and all app-related behaviors are final. Last year, this happened during the third Android 13 beta.
