Google is rolling out its monthly update for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro from January 15, 2021. And the American giant has a lot to be forgiven for with this update, which weighs 40 MB for users who installed the December patch, and 215 MB for those who stayed on the November version.

January update lands on Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro

The January update brings all the fixes that were already listed for the December update while incorporating new ones. Recently, Google disabled the Call Screen feature due to a bug originating from the December update. This makes it possible to filter telephone calls by determining whether a communication is indeed from a human and the purpose of the call. This option is back on mobiles that had installed the December update.

A fix is ​​made for an issue with emergency calls in certain situations if certain specific third-party apps are installed on the smartphone. Google is also correcting a problem of sometimes high energy consumption in the background which could reduce the autonomy of the devices.

On some networks, mobile connectivity should improve, and an issue causing the device to restart after applying an OTA update has been resolved. The display of mobile data consumption also becomes more precise, solving a data count problem.

The update will be deployed in the coming days to all Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. It has already been available since the beginning of the year on earlier models. Let’s hope this update doesn’t further degrade the user experience and that the December update fiasco has served as a lesson to Google.
