Google Pixel 2 has been receiving constant updates from Google for the last three years and it’s finally the time the company will stop giving updates on the phone. The company has finally released the one final software update for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The final software updates would include quite a bit of optimization and the December 2020 security patches for the phone. The update was released earlier this week as a part of the Pixel Feature Drop update.
When it comes to the features one of the most interesting and new features in the list is the Adaptive Sound. The feature is currently available only on Pixel 4a 5G and 5, which is used to improve the quality of the sound on the phone speaker, based on the surroundings and noise, data for which is collected through the microphone. The new feature list also includes a lot of new wallpapers for the device and the addition of Google’s Hold Me feature and Adaptive Connectivity.
The adaptive connectivity technology is only available on 5G enabled Pixel devices and can easily switch between 4G and 5G on Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, based on the app and its requirement of data and speed. For example, it might switch to 4G for normal web browsing on your phone and then switch to 5G again if you are streaming a movie. With so many new features coming in from Google, it might be the right time for you to upgrade to a new Pixel device. However, if you are still using Pixel 2 and XL variants, make sure to download the last update.
