Pixel, Pixel XL update going live today, at least on Verizon


Verizon is rolling out an update to the Pixel and Pixel XL today. Presumably, all Pixel handsets should be getting it since Big Red’s variant of the smartphone is supposed to get updates around the same time as a standard Pixel.

The change log from Verizon is as follows:

  • Message notifications while connected to vehicle Bluetooth® systems
  • Daydream View performance
  • Adds New Mexico as a state option during Wi-Fi Calling setup

As you can see, there isn’t anything major here, but the Daydream View performance note is interesting. With the Daydream View set to launch on November 10, this update is obviously preparing the Pixel phone for the most optimal experience.

The update is rolling out now to Verizon handsets, though we’re still waiting for confirmation to see if regular Pixel phones are getting the update already, too.
