Yesterday, Google announced its March 2021 Pixel feature drop, which included some fun new features like smart compose coming to more messaging apps, a new bedtime screen for Pixel Stand owners, a Dive Connector feature to allow for compatibility with underwater photography accessories, and even new wallpapers supporting International Women's Day.

Google's newest smartphones like the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, and Pixel 5 are among the best Android phones for many reasons, not the least of which is the clean version of the OS they run, and the little special features they get ahead of, or instead of, other devices. These new features began rolling out yesterday, but it seems not everyone has received them yet.

Just did a check for update and there it was. 187MB. Downloading now.

Still haven't received mine on the pixel 5. Last month i only received it on like the 12th-14th of the month. I did receive the update for sound recorder and it walked me through the cloud backup setup. I tested it and works flawlessly.

  • Yep...waiting in the car at my son's 6am hockey practice and checked for update and there it is! March 5th update at 187MB 👍👍
  • Yes, I did. I like the recordings save and share. The rest of it isn't terribly interesting to me.
