Verizon begins pushing Android 8.0 Oreo update to its Pixel and Pixel XL


Verizon Pixel and Pixel XL owners, it sounds like you’ve got an Oreo treat coming your way.

Verizon says that it’s starting to push Android 8.0 Oreo to its Pixel and Pixel XL today, August 29th. The update is version OPR6.170623.012 and includes features that you’d expect from an Oreo update. That means that you’re getting picture-in-picture, autofill, notification dots, and more.

As with most over the air software updates, Verizon is likely sending Oreo out to Pixel and Pixel XL units in stages. That means that it might take a few days for the update to hit your device. You can always manually check for the update if you’d like, which you can do by going into Settings > System > System updates > Check for update.

When Google revealed Android Oreo last week, it said that the update would begin going out to devices soon, and it looks like that was indeed the case. We haven’t seen any other Nexus or Pixel phones get their Oreo treat quite yet, but now that Verizon has started to push the update to its Pixel phones, the updates for other devices shouldn’t be too far off.
