Google says it will only release ONE extra security update for owners of the original Pixel phone
- First generation pixel owners will receive a security update than promised
- The last update for the original Pixel and Pixel XL would be October
- The latest security update will be released in December
The last round of security updates for the first generation of Pixel phones from Google will be released in December.
The original Pixels and Pixel XL & # 39; s were not included in the November security round in Google.
The company later confirmed that it will include fixes from the November update in the December security download, which is scheduled to be the last official security update for first-generation phones.

The original Pixel and Pixel XL were released on October 20, 2016 and Google promised to receive two years of Android system updates and three years of supported security updates.
Many had expected the October security update to be the last, but Google is going two months beyond the original time frame to protect owners of the original Pixel, according to a report from The edge.
Google had also previously said it would stop supporting supported Android updates for the first generation of Pixels after Android Pie, but in March the company said it would extend support via Android Q.

Last month, Google announced the latest models in the Pixel range with the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.
Starting at $ 799 and $ 899 respectively, these models feature flashy new motion control technology from Google, which uses radar to detect handwaves that people can use to control their phone without ever touching it.

- Improvements for the Google Assistant's hotword function.
