Google’s April update will address several issues with its Pixel phones


It would be impossible for developers to release software that is completely free from bugs. This is because it would be impossible for developers to test out every possible scenario/situation, so usually over the course of months or years, new bugs are discovered and fixed.

If you happen to own any of Google’s Pixel devices that are eligible for updates, then you might want to keep an eye out for Google’s April update. This is because based on the changelog, it seems that Google will be addressing quite a number of issues that have been plaguing the devices.

According to Google:

Battery & Power

Additional improvements for wireless charging performance with certain accessories *[2].


Fix for issue causing front-facing camera preview in certain apps to appear zoomed in *[2].

Fix for issue occasionally causing green screen to appear in camera preview *[2].

User Interface

Google notes that the update will be rolled out in stages over the next week and in some cases, might also be dependent on the carrier and device, so if you haven’t received the notification to update yet, don’t worry as it should eventually make its way to you.
