Google has released its January 2019 security patch update which addresses a number of vulnerabilities on the kernel and system level.
The update is available for all Pixel devices, including smartphones and the Pixel C tablet as well. The update is available for more recent devices running Android 9 Pie, as well as older devices which won’t receive major updates past Android 8.1 Oreo.
Besides the usual security and vulnerability fixes, the change log for this update includes improved audio quality when recording videos on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL:
|A-113776612, A-118022272||Audio||Improved audio quality when recording videos||Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL|
Nexus devices, which received an extra security update last month (beyond the 3 years of promised updates) have not, as yet, received a January 2019 security patch update, and they’re not likely to.
