Google Pixel December 2019 Update is Out! – What’s New?


hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and
the December update for Google pixel phones as well as essential phone and
some other phones is now available and you can install it either over-the-air
on a pixel 3 3 a XL or any of the pixel devices however there are a couple
exceptions for example this is the last update that the original pixel and pixel
XL will receive it will no longer receive any updates so this is the last
update so make sure you install this it’s got a bunch of security updates
I’ll talk about in a moment but it’s the last one for this device now the other
exception is depending on when you’re watching this if you have a pixel 4 or
4x he’ll the update is not available yet but it will be available next week or
one week from when they released it according to Google so the update has a
lot of fixes for the pixel 4 and 4 XL but it’s not available yet but the
update is available for all the other pixel devices so let’s go over what’s
new and the first thing is the build number and the build number can vary
depending on device and region so I’ll just go over what we have here we have
QQ 1 8.1 9 1 2 0 5 0 1 1 and that’s on the three axl now as far as the updates
and things one of the things that people have noticed is that the gesture
navigation that I have here will now work with third-party launchers on older
devices so if you have a pixel 2 or 2 XL or 3 or 3a or any of those you should be
able to use the gesture navigation with the actual launcher that you’re using it
not just the stock pixel launcher so if you’ve been wanting to do that you
should be able to do that now there are specific fixes and a lot of them will
carry over to the pixel 4 only but let’s go over them one by one now on the pixel
form if you were having static when you were playing Spotify that should now be
resolved so that will be fixed once it’s available for the pixel 4 and for excel
also for the same device is there’s a fix for background audio static in
third-party camera apps so if you’re using a third-party app you’re not using
the stock camera app for the pixel should fix any of the static issues also
in the bootloader dark mode is now supported on the pixel for in for Excel
so whatever the bootloader is on here when you’re booting up if it was just a
white background it will now be a dark background if you’re using dark mode and
then on the pixel 3 3 a 3 a excel 4 and for excel there’s now a fix for
bluetooth pairing when it loses that information so if you were having issues
with bluetooth just losing that information that should now be resolved
on the all those devices that I mentioned now on the pixel 4 and for XO
there will be a fix for pairing it with Garmin devices so if you were having an
issue pairing this with a Garmin watch or accessory that should now be fixed as
well there’s also a fix for the display on the 4 and 4 XL for screen flicker so
in various use cases if you were having the screen flicker I’ve seen a lot of
people say they’ve had this that should be resolved as well they’ve also
improved haptic vibration intensity in certain cases with the foreign 4xl so
maybe it wasn’t working well or it wasn’t consistent throughout it will now
work properly they’ve also fixed misaligned device
orientation in certain cases so maybe it was rotated to the side in a certain app
that should be resolved as well and if the device orientation was incorrect it
should be fixed on the 4 and 4 XL now the final fix that they mentioned
specifically carries from the pixel 2 all the way to the pixel 4 and all the
devices in between and that is a fix for the Google paycard display in the power
menu so when you push power if you have your Google card in here it should fix
that if it wasn’t showing properly I don’t have it set up but if you have it
set up it should work properly now those are the specific fixes that Google
actually calls out in this update bulletin but they also said in addition
to the specific items listed the December update includes hundreds of
various fixes and improvements across many areas including performance
stability camera display and face unlock so maybe we’ll get that face on lock
improvement where you can’t just have your eyes closed and still have it
unlocked maybe that will be fixed well only know that for sure in a week or so
when the actual update is released for the for and for Excel now there are many
security fixes I’ll link all that information in the description if you
want to read it yourself but there are moderate to high security updates there
are seven framework fixes to media framework fixes eight system fixes one
media codec fix three kernel component fixes 12 Qualcomm components and then 10
Qualcomm closed source components security fixes all of those security
fixes are included in this December update now as far as performance on
these devices even on the slower three axl I haven’t seen any performance
issues everything seems to be nice and fast if you want to go into the camera
it launches pretty reasonably I really have not had any issues whatsoever as
far as speed or anything working properly
let’s hit try again here but everything seems to be super fast and smooth and I
really have no issues whatsoever with it so I really like that Google tells us
exactly what’s in these updates and how often they’re being released now I
highly recommend you install this update especially if you have a pixel or pixel
XL since it’s the last major update where you’ll get all of these security
fixes for this device I definitely recommend installing it but let me know
what you think about this update in the comments below have you already
installed it are you going to sideload it usually I have to sideload it in
order to get it in time but I just wanted to let you know all of the
different features and then next week if we see anything new I’ll do a follow up
with it on the pixel 4 or 4 XL but let me know your thoughts in the comments
below if you’d like to get your hands on this wallpaper of course I’ll link it in
