Here comes the Android December security update. If you’re the proud owner of a Pixel phone, it’s time to check and see if you can grab the latest fixes, patches, and features for your device. But remember: Google is rolling the update out, as always, so it’s possible you might not have it yet.

Which Pixels are getting the December update?

As far as Pixels go, the December update applies to Google’s Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 4 smartphones—and the XL versions, naturally.

And if you’re still using an original Google Pixel or Pixel XL, this is your final update, period. This shouldn’t come as surprise, however; when the devices launched, Google promised two years of Android version updates and three years of security updates. We hit the latter for the October security patch, and Google skipped a November update for the devices in order to issue one final wrap-up today.

Are the December updates just fixing security issues?

Nope! In addition to those, Google is also patching a number of noteworthy bugs, which it detailed separately:

And a number of features are rolling out to older Pixel phones as part of the December update. According to Android Police’s testing, they include:

  How To Install Google's Recorder App On The Pixel 2, 3, 3a And More Google Recorder is one of the best apps you’ll find on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, thanks to how well it can automatically transcribe captured audio and even create subtitles for muted videos. And now we’ve got good news for owners of other Pixels: Google is finally porting this app over to the Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a smartphones (and their larger XL counterparts). Even if you don’t have a Pixel, you might still luck out.

Update Your Android's 'Carrier Services' App To See If You Have RCS Messaging .
RCS messaging, the next iteration of text messaging that Google has embraced for its Android operating system, has been rolling out to Android smartphones since November. That doesn’t mean that your phone, on your carrier, can use this super-improved version of SMS, but a new update to your Carrier Services application might unlock it for you. As 9to5Google notes, a brand-new update for your Carrier Services app is opening up RCS messaging for even more combinations of carriers and devices, including various Google Pixels, Samsung Galaxies, and even some OnePlus Android devices.
