The May 2022 Android security patch is here! If you own a recent Google Pixel smartphone, you can perform a software update check now in System Settings to grab it. You can also update manually or simply wait for the OTA notification.

For some reason, Google hasn’t posted its usual changelog for this update yet. However, considering the quarterly feature drop comes next month in June, we doubt there is more than the security patch and some bug fixes.

Also, do note that this is likely the last update for the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL as they ride off into the sunset.

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 6 costs just $599 and is our favorite phone from 2021.
