Yesterday, December 7, Google began rolling out the December 2020 security patch to Pixel devices. In addition to the usual assortment of bug fixes, this update also includes a brand new Pixel Feature Drop!
This latest Feature Drop has a lot to offer, with older Pixels getting many of the hallmark features introduced on the Pixel 5 — such as Hold for Me and Extreme Battery Saver. Google also introduced some all-new features, namely Adaptive Charging for even safer charging of your phone overnight.
Taking a gander through the AC forums, a lot of our members are already rocking the new software.
What about you? Did you get the December 2020 security patch?
Got it. Can't tell the difference yet. I need to start digging. Unlocked P3XL.
I downloaded it to my Pixel 4 XL. Configured extreme battery saver to my needs. Did not see anywhere settings for the new dynamic sound. Did not see anywhere the new charging option. I pulled the plug out off my phone before going to bed when the battery was up to 84%. The new instant screen shot is a nice UX improvement.
I got the update Monday. I did not have new Google Photo features or the battery charging optimization. I have both of them now.
