May software update for o Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have launched a fix for the user feedback issue. The issue was first reported in March when many Pixel 6 owners started complaining about unfortunate vibrations after the Android 12L update. According to the complainants, the vibrations on their devices will be significantly reduced after the update, resulting in lost calls or notifications in some cases.
Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which launched late last year with high heat reception from the media and consumers alike, are among the best smartphones money can buy. Unfortunately, both devices have some weird tricks, including bugged digital image scanners, slow 5G speeds, improved auto-routing functionality, and much more. The feedback still seems to be an update on the list after the Android 12L update, but Pixel 6 and 6 Pro users now expect Google to finally fix the issue with the update received.
Google will launch its monthly update for May 2022 and through actionable security patches and bug fixes for the Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and other compatible devices. In accordance with the update of Google’s support pages “Best for feedback based on certain conditions and instances of use.” This is specific to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro and will not affect the other Pixel devices that will also receive the May 2022 update.
Along with the feedback issue affecting the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, the OTA update is also received with fixes for some bugs affecting all supported Pixel devices from Pixel 3a to Pixel 6 developers. One of the details is for an issue that the fabrics of the two Pixel devices match without interacting. Another fix is for an issue that occurs when initialization fails after the device is rebooted under certain conditions. Finally, it’s worth noting that while it’s hoped that the remaining two devices on the line will receive Android 13, this is likely to be the final hurdle for the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.
As part of the May 2022 Android security bulletin, Google is patching 14 vulnerabilities in the 05/20/01 patch and 23 in the 05/05/2022 patch. One of the vulnerabilities corrected as part of the latter is the exploration of the Linux kernel ‘Dirty Pipe’ (CVE-2022-0847). As part of the problem, any application with ‘read’ permissions on a computer or phone can execute malicious code on the device. It covers all mobile and desktop devices running Linux based operating systems including Android, Chrome OS and many more.
