Google finally pushes OTA update to Pixel 6 and 6 Pro after botched December update

2022-01-14

The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are finally receiving the January update. In addition, Google has also published the system images and OTA files for the Pixel duo. The January update brings all the fixes that were on the December update plus some new ones for this month.

If you're updating from the November patch, the update pulled will be 215MB and just 40MB if you're coming from the December patch.

There’s a lengthy list of fixes on the Google’s support page for the update. Major fixes include the use of Call Screen and bug squashes related to making emergency calls. There was also an issue related to battery drain under some conditions. There are also general UI fixes that should smoothen out the user-experience and Wi-Fi should be more stable.

The last couple of months have not been fun for Pixel 6 users following a December update riddled issues. It was meant to address bugs from the software builds that came before it, but it ended up causing signal issues to users globally. It even caused Google to disable a couple of its Pixel-exclusive features due to bugs and the while some users were updated to December, others were left on November’s update until Google could solve everything with a delayed December update – which never came for those stuck on the November update.

As Google promised, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro updates finally began rolling out today, January 14 and should become available for all Pixel 6 devices over the next week. Meanwhile, the January update began rolling out to older Pixel users back on January 4.
