It’s the first Monday of the new month and you know what that means. No, it has nothing to do with the Supreme Court as the latter kicks off each new term on the first Monday in October. The first Monday each month is when Google releases the latest Android security update for compatible Pixel models.
Current models receiving support from Google (along with the appropriate version number) include the Pixel 3/3 XL (RQ2A.210505.002), Pixel 3a/3a XL (RQ2A.210505.002), Pixel 4/4 XL (RQ2A.210505.002), Pixel 4a (RQ2A.210505.002), Pixel 4a 5G (RQ2A.210505.003), and the Pixel 5 (RQ2A.210505.003). To update your Pixel OTA, go to Settings > System > Advanced > System update.
Google sends out the Pixel Feature Drop every three months with exciting new features, and bug fixes are taken care of with the Pixel functional update which is usually released every month. Since the last Feature Drop occurred in March, the next one is expected to be released next month (June), and so far we have not seen the May functional update. Once it surfaces, we will update this story.
