Android 8.0 Oreo Rolling Out To Verizon's Pixel And Pixel XL Smartpones
Just after around one week, when Google officially revealed Android 8.0 Oreo, the update has started to roll out to the public. US carrier Verizon is already starting to push the 8.0 update to Google Pixel and Pixel XL handsets on its network.
Last week Google started rolling out the final version of Android 8.0 Oreo to those smartphones who were enrolled in the Android beta program. However, today it looks like it might finally be ready to expand the rollout. Verizon has announced that the Pixel and Pixel XL units it has sold should be receiving the update to Android 8.0 Oreo.
Verizon claims that they have started updating their Google Pixel and Pixel XL to Android 8.0 Oreo. The update bumps both phones to build number OPR6.170623.012 and has Android Oreo features like picture-in-picture, notification dots, autofill, and more, as reported by 9to5Google.
However, the most notable thing is the inclusion of the always-on display feature that has been seen in leaks a few weeks ago. According to the release notes, the always-on display will transition to ambient display mode when the user receives notifications, according to Android Authority.
Google has previously said that Android 8.0 Oreo updates for the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, and select Nexus devices would begin rolling out "soon", and it looks that time is now for Pixel phones on Verizon. However, so far no other device has seen receiving a taste of Oreo yet, but now that Verizon's pushing these updates, more Oreo updates are expected to come soon.
The latest Android 8.0 Oreo update will likely go out over the air in stages over the coming days, so it might take some time to reach your smartphone. If the user wants to manually check for the update, he/she can do so by going into Settings > System > System updates > Check for update.
