The May 2024 Android security patch is here! If you own a recent Google Pixel smartphone or the Pixel Tablet, 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.

Be forewarned, though: This update only has a handful of security updates and some bug fixes. In other words, it’s not incredibly exciting. However, we expect Google to bring plenty of new features with its next Pixel Feature Drop, which we’ll likely see in June. We could also see a surprise drop next week during the Google I/O 2024 event. For now, you can see the full changelog for the May 2024 patch.

You can always manually update if you don’t want to wait for the OTA alert on your Pixel phone or tablet. To download the factory image or OTA, click the appropriate link below. Don’t have a Pixel? The Google Pixel 8a ($499 at Amazon) is brand new, inexpensive, and will receive software updates until 2031.

With the Pixel 8a, Google put all of its focus on value. A 6.1-inch display is backed by the Tensor G3 chip and decent specifications, a 64MP main camera is backed by most of Google's latest AI-powered features, and a 7-year update promise will keep this moderately priced phone ticking for years to come.
