Google Pixel 4 gets its final guaranteed update and it’s coming just in time before the launch of the Pixel 7 and fixing bugs for the very last time.
Google Pixel 4 Gets Its Final Guaranteed Update
If you are one of the persons who currently own a Google Pixel 4 or a Pixel 4 XL device, then this might just be the time to upgrade as tech company Google is rolling out its October 2022 update to these sets of phones and as well as subsequent models including the pixel 6. And you should also know that this is the final update that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL is guaranteed to be getting.
As per an official Google Support Page, October 2022 is the last month these phones are guaranteed to get either security updates or android version updates with the first meaning that they will be increasingly unsafe to make use of.
Google May Consider Supporting the Pixel 4 Lines for a Longer Period
It is also worth taking note that these are just the guaranteed updates. That being said, it is still very much possible that Google will opt to support the Pixel 4 lines for a longer period of time, but we would however not count on it, most especially as it is that Google did not provide more than the guaranteed number of updates for the Pixel 3 devices.
The good news here is that the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 pro phones will be full unveils tomorrow, October 6. That being said, there is about to be a brand new model that you can easily upgrade to in the event that you would like to still stick with the pixel brand.
The New Set of Pixel Phones Are Likely To Get Up To Five Years of Security Patches
Another thing that you should know about these new phones is that they are very much likely to get up to five years of security patches just like the Pixel 6 line will which could also make up for an upgrade on the three years that the Pixel 4 lineup has received. And this, therefore, means that you just might need to upgrade again. The Android version on the other hand might still be limited to three years.
