Google Pixel smartphones have received Android’s October security update. The security update fixes various ongoing issues in the latest version of Android – Android 13. Furthermore, it works on audio and connectivity issues as well in Pixel 4 and later (apart from the Google’s Pixel 6 series and the Pixel 6a phones).

Pixel’s October security update fixes the audio issue during phone calls in Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a (5G), Pixel 5 and Pixel 5a (5G). Other than that, connectivity issues – a problem preventing available Wi-Fi networks from appearing in the network selection menu in some apps and connectivity issues while using a VPN have been fixed after the update.

Android October security update also includes improvements for a number of user interface issues that Pixel phones running on Android 13 users had, including the problems that made the media player display the default icon for some media apps in Android 13 as well as issues that led to Pixel phone crash when attempting to play audio from local storage, empty Quick Settings tiles to appear in notification shade, and trimmed Work Profile toggle button in app drawer.

Android Security Update for October arrives when the launch Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro is on the cards to launch on October 6 at the Made by Google event. The handsets will be available for pre-orders on Flipkart, starting October 6. Google previously said that both the handsets will be powered by Google Tensor G2 chipset – which is developed by Samsung.
