Your Google Pixel Phone’s June Update Arrived

Must read

The June Pixel update is here after months of testing in the form of Android 14 QPR3 beta. That build has gone stable, will rollout to still-supported Pixel devices starting from today, and happens to arrive as the June Pixel Feature Drop as well. This is the big June update we’ve been preparing for.

We have an entire write-up on the June Pixel Feature Drop features (here), where we discuss Gemini Nano on more devices, Display Port out, easy phone lookups, improved HDR+, and more. It’s a major update you’ll want to grab as soon as possible to start playing with. It also includes a lengthy list of bug fixes (full list incoming) that will attempt to further stabilize your Pixel device.

As for which devices are getting this month’s update, it’s the same list that we had for the QPR3 beta, which means the Pixel 5a, Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, Pixel 7a, Pixel 8 and 8 Pro, Pixel 8a, Pixel Fold, and Pixel Tablet.

Here are the first round of build numbers:

  • Pixel 6:                AP2A.240605.024
