Google has just announced the release of the February 2022 software updates for all Pixel devices running Android 12 or newer. The updates will roll out gradually to all eligible Pixel devices, which includes the Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5, Pixel 5a (5G), as well as the brand new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
As you may know, many early adopters of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have been complaining about software issues since their Fall 2021 launch, and the February 2022 update should improve things on the Camera and Bluetooth fronts: Google has fixed an issue causing some Pixel 6 devices to reboot when the camera was being used, and the Bluetooth audio quality and disconnection issues should also be a thing of the past.

Google also fixed a bug causing the keyboard to display over input text in certain conditions. According to Google, this specific bug affected the Pixel 3a, the Pixel 3a XL, and all Pixel devices that followed. Lastly, the February 2022 Pixel updates should also improve cellular connectivity for Pixel 4, Pixel 4XL, Pixel 4a (5G) & Pixel 5 devices on the C Spire and Cellcom networks.
As usual, these new Pixel software updates will roll out in phases and users will receive a push notification once the new bits are available for their device. Google is committed to releasing new Pixel updates every month, and we’ll sure be keeping an eye on future releases.
