Each major android update from google often comes with initial issues, and the recent launch of Android 14 in the past month was no exception. Many users with multiple accounts on their Android devices encountered problems, such as the dreaded “out of space” error or, more frustratingly, getting stuck in a reboot loop after installing the update.
Google's November Update Solves Major Android Issues in Pixel Smartphones
Gizchina News of the week
Today, there's good news for Pixel users, as Google is rolling out the November Android update for supported devices. The most significant relief is that the bug responsible for the previous issues has got a fix. This issue impacted a wide range of devices. Including the Pixel 6, Pixel 6a, Pixel 6 Pro, Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 7a, Pixel Tablet, Pixel Fold, Pixel 8, and Pixel 8 Pro.
In addition to addressing the major bug, the update also tackles several other issues. One of these problems caused a green flash when the display turned off in specific situations. Mainly on the Pixel 7 Pro. Another issue affected NFC stability. While a different issue caused system instability when an app requested another app that was no longer installed. Users also reported instances of desktop icons disappearing when unlocking their devices. As well as misaligned wallpapers for devices with notches or hole-punches. The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro had their share of issues too. Experiencing screen jerkiness when touch registration became imprecise.
Google has shared that the update rollout will occur over the course of a week, with availability dependent on your carrier and device. Users can expect the new build numbers UP1A.231105.001 for the Pixel 4a 5g, Pixel 5, and Pixel 5a 5G, UD1A.231105.004 for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, and UP1A.231105.003 for all other supported devices. This update brings much-needed relief to users and ensures a smoother Android experience for Pixel device owners.
