Google Pixel 2016 will receive security updates next month

1 min read

In 2016, Google announced the launch of its new smartphone, Google Pixel. In launching this new brand, Google said it will provide two years of software updates and three-year security updates for the device, and no updates will be provided after expiration. The Google Pixel 2016 devices did not receive security updates this month, which made the outside world think that Google has ended its support as agreed.

Google has suddenly announced that it will resume security updates to Google Pixel 2016 next month. In other words, Google will continue to provide security updates beyond the original life cycle, which is good news for Google Pixel users. Of course, there was no update released in November, but Google did not say that it was the end of support.

In previous media reports, some media compared Google to Apple. Apple usually provides up to five years of support for the device, while Google only has three years. So I don’t know if it is because of a lot of media reports that Google decided to resume support, but for Google’s brand, this is a good thing.
