Some Google Pixel and Pixel XL users on Project Fi are yet to receive July Android security patch – and its August already

Google Project Fi

It’s already August, but it appears that Google Pixel and Pixel XL users on Project Fi have not yet received the update to July’s Android security patch.

The tech giant started rolling out the update to last month’s Android security patch more than three weeks ago, but it appears that some people are still stuck on the June security patch level. This is unusual for Google phones, which are always ahead of the game when it comes to receiving software updates.

In a few days’ time, the new update to this month’s security patch should be rolled out to all Google Pixel and Pixel XL users as well as Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P handsets. It’s still unclear whether Google will release this update alongside the new Android O, but it’s likely that the new OS will come bundled with this month’s security patch, unless it starts rolling out next month.

This is not the only time that we’ve seen issues with the July Android security patch. When the update started rolling out, some Google Pixel users reported an issue where the phone couldn’t update to the latest version due to an installation error. Google later fixed this issue and people were able to download the update on their phones successfully.

As for the current issue, it’s still unclear whether it’s only affecting those using the Google Pixel and Pixel XL on Project Fi or the Pixel family at large. As such, we won’t mind if you shared your experience with us via the comments section below.
