We expect the next big Pixel feature drop to land in March. As such, this month’s update just brings vulnerability fixes with no new features. However, this is notable for being the first update for 2023.

If you don’t want to wait for the OTA alert on your Pixel phone, you can always manually update. To download the factory image or OTA, click the appropriate link below. Don’t have a Pixel phone? The Google Pixel 6a costs just $499 and will receive software updates until 2027.
