Google Fixes Problems, Brings Pixel 4 Features to Older Pixels

Android 10 Live Caption functionality on the Google Pixel 4

This latest patch added new features and security fixes for the Pixel 2, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3a, but nothing for the Pixel 4. The Pixel Update Bulletin for December 2019 contains fixes for a total of 8 flaws discovered in the kernel components and Android system. Google Nest WiFi comes in three variations, 2-pack, 3-pack and 4-pack; all named by the number of satellite points they come with. Although, users have themselves find methods to resolve the problem.

The issue of the crashing Pixel Launcher is apparently only present if the user is using the new gesture navigation introduced in Android 10.

Many resorted to factory resetting their affected devices since the constantly appearing pop-up prevented them from navigating through the OS for a possible alternate fix.


The December 2019 update has landed on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a devices this week, bringing a variety of fixes as well as Live Caption support.

Also today, Google released the Pixel Update Bulletin for December 2019 to address various security vulnerabilities and issues specific to Pixel devices, in addition to the security vulnerabilities described in the Android Security Bulletin for December 2019. Also, flickering display in "different usage cases" has been addressed, while there is improved "haptic vibration intensity in certain cases".

Not only is this annoying for anyone with a Pixel 4, but it's also a bad look for Google that it's not following through on one of the biggest selling points for its phone. The update, however, is the last security patch for original Pixel and Pixel XL phones.
