Charm your Valentine with the Love AR Playmoji pack for Google Pixel

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

Google Playground's stickers and Playmojis are pretty fun, and the timely Childish Gambino drop likely brought more attention to the Pixel's AR features. It makes sense, then, that Valentine's Day arrives with another new pack, predictably all pink and heart-shaped.

The Love Playmoji pack is now available for all three generations of the Google Pixel, including adorable characters such as smitten champagne glasses with little bow ties, smiling interactive hearts, and a healthy dose of cheesy love notes.

Google appears to have fixed the ‘check for update’ button on Pixels again

Monday, January 7th, 2019

In what is likely to be the biggest low-key Android news today, Google seems to have silently flipped the switch (again) when it comes to the "check for update" button on Pixels. On every Pixel device we've tested here at Android Police, tapping the button in the Settings app is successfully pulling down the recent January update.

For a bit of perspective, OTA rollouts are usually pushed out to a smaller group before everyone else, to better ensure that a serious, undetected problem with a given update only affects a few people before it's caught.

January Pixel updates are out now: Pixel 3 video sound quality fix, 5X and 6P finally left behind

Monday, January 7th, 2019

The latest pair of Google flagships haven't been without their controversies — it's effectively a yearly ritual as the tech enthusiast community picks apart a new Pixel phone's faults— but subsequent updates typically resolve the vast majority of these issues. Lucky for us, Google claims that another Pixel 3 problem has been resolved with January's update. The issue with low-quality audio while recording video is allegedly fixed. And downloads are posted and ready for sideloading if you're impatiently waiting for this fix to hit your own Pixel 3.

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

When the Pixel 3 debuted two months back, Google made sure its new flagship lineup was adorned with all the latest bells and whistles, introducing us to a whole bunch of new features in the process. From the get-go, we were curious to learn which of these might also make their way to older Pixel phones, and when. Over the past few weeks more and more have been expanding to new devices, and the latest to spread the love is Playground and its Playmoji packs, now formally available for the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL.

Pixel Sounds updated to v2.0, and it actually works now [APK Download]

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

Google laid the groundwork for a new app earlier this month, and now you can (maybe) use it. While the prospect of "Pixel Sounds" isn't the most exciting, it improves a part of the Android experience that has long needed an overhaul. Pixel devices will soon have a more expansive set of ringtones with a much prettier interface. The app didn't work when it first popped up, but v2.0 does, and it's rolling out now.

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

Call Screen debuted alongside the Pixel 3, allowing users to "screen" calls. While onstage, Google said that the feature would trickle down to the first- and second-generation Pixels in November. That ETA was right on the money for the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, though we're only now hearing reports of it arriving on the first-gen Pixel and Pixel XL.

Several reports of Call Screen hitting the oldest Pixels have surfaced on r/GooglePixel.

The November OTA is finally rolling out to the first-gen Pixel and Pixel XL

Monday, November 19th, 2018

Unlike most Android device makers, Google promises monthly updates for its Pixel smartphones. For the 2016 Pixels, that consisted of two years for system updates and another year of security OTAs. Owners of those phones were naturally concerned when the November security update never arrived while newer devices got quick OTAs. Well, now it has.

We're getting reports of the OTA reaching phones right now, but you can also grab the files and sideload.

Google confirms it’s still working on the November update for 2016 Pixels

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

It's not uncommon for phones to get slower and fewer updates as they get older. Actually, a lot of phones start out with slow updates. That's not the case with Google's Pixel phones, which come with multi-year update guarantees. So, owners of the first-gen Pixels have been concerned about the lack of a November update so far. We've reached out to Google, which says the OTA is in "final testing."

The November update for Pixel phones appeared first on November 5th.
