Google is going to give you 3 years of OS and security updates for Pixel 2/XL

Do you have question in mind?…… Yes. What was that? For how long we will get Android OS and Security updates for our brand new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL?

Don’t worry Google has officially confirmed that the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL updated for the next 3 years. Yes, and this includes both updates to the OS and security updates.

This is the advantage If you bought your device from the Google Store, updates will typically reach your device within 2 weeks. If you bought your device elsewhere, updates can take longer.

If you are owner of Google Pixel series, You will get software updates for much longer than any other Android device. See below:

  • Pixel (2016) phones get Android version updates for at least 2 years from when the device first became available on the Google Store. After 2 years, we can’t guarantee more updates.
