It’s March, and that means it’s time for another feature drop for Pixel owners. Pixel 6 users were upset because there was a delay with this latest update. However, according to 9To5Google, the March update is finally coming for Pixel 6 users on Verizon.
Despite the delay, Google is pushing the update to its devices slowly but surely. Last week, it started distributing the update to T-Mobile and AT&T customers. So, if you own a Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, or a Pixel 6a, and you’re on either of those carriers, then you might want to check for the update.
To do so manually, go to your settings and scroll down to the System section. There, tap on the System Update section. Tap on the button on the bottom to have your phone scan for any available updates.
The March update is coming to Pixel 6 owners on Verizon
This update is coming to all three models of the Pixel 6, so it doesn’t matter which one you have. This is a pretty big update because it doesn’t only bring the usual bug fixes and patches (50 this time around). It also brings the Android 13 QPR 2 with some new features that users will enjoy.
There aren’t a ton of features this time but there are some nice ones. If you’re using a Nest Hub display and you set a timer, it will actually display on your phone’s At a Glance widget.
This next one is great if you call a lot of businesses. The Direct My Call feature will actually show you the menus for automated phone services. You’ll be able to select which option you want before the robotic voice speaks it.
If you’re using an older Pixel phone (as far back as the Pixel 4a), the Magic Eraser is now available to you. It’s finally trickled to more people.
Last, but not least, the Night Sight feature now works much faster. This means that taking photos in low light will be much quicker and better.
