If saying AR stickers and wonders of a camera wasn’t adequate for we to buy Google’s latest Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google is charity we another reason – some-more confidence updates.

Security is one of a vital issues that is cited by users when it comes to Android. While Google’s inclination – even before a branding them as a possess – typically perceived timely confidence and underline upgrades, a association is holding things a small some-more severely now that it’s rising products with a possess name on them.

When Google creatively expelled a Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones final year, a association had betrothed dual years of program updates for a handsets. With today’s new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, however, Google is adding another year to a program support cycle.

Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will accept 3 years of updates from a time of release

Remember, this is a “guaranteed” timeframe of Android program updates for a new Pixels. Google typically adds additional time generally when it comes to confidence updates, though promises regressive numbers.

Google’s Nexus phones were also betrothed dual years of program support, though many of them continue receiving confidence updates from a hunt giant. [Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X recently got a few reward months of updates]

However, this additional year of Android program updates wasn’t highlighted during a proclamation progressing today, creation it misleading if it indeed is true. The underline comes as a footnote on Google Store’s Pixel 2 listing: “Pixel’s program and confidence updates for 3 years.”

It is also misleading if Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will accept usually confidence updates for 3 years (which is already loyal for a strange Pixels) or underline upgrades will also be offered.

While Google has done a flagship smartphone universe a small some-more sparkling given final year, it is nonetheless to compare a support that a arch rival, a iPhone maker, promises. iPhones and iPads continue to accept both underline and confidence updates for years. Google starting to solemnly supplement some-more years in a program support cycle will usually give users another reason to bound on to a otherwise-malware-ridden Android universe where phones are left out in a furious with no support only years after their release.
