Google Pixel and Pixel XL owners on Verizon’s network should be receiving an over-the-air update sometime today, coming in at build number NMF26O. Along with the December Android security patch, this new update includes a number of bug fixes like email font improvements, fixes to Visual Voicemail errors and more:
- Customers couldn’t retrieve their Visual Voicemail messages and were getting an error 9999 in some areas.
- Voicemail icon notification was not displaying when a new voicemail message was received.
- Device stopped playing voicemail messages over Bluetooth after the screen timed out.
- Device occasionally went to blue screen during an inbound call.
- Email font was too small.
- Text was garbled on the call screen/dialer and the text was corrupted on the Recent Calls and contact list screens.
Unfortunately, this update does not appear to contain the ‘double-tap to check phone’ and ‘lift to check phone’ gestures that were rolled out for the Google Pixel phones by Canadian carriers a few weeks ago. The changelog also does not show that it contains Android 7.1.1. Nougat, which Vodafone Australia claims would begin rolling out on Tuesday, December 6. However, it’s possible that Verizon’s update does contain 7.1.1 and simply does not mention it on the support page. Hopefully we will get more information soon when it actually begins rolling out.
As with all OTA updates, it may take a few days for this latest build to hit all of Verizon’s Google Pixel phones. For more details on this update, head to the source link below.
