Google Pixel update for September is still based on Android 13

The latest Google Pixel update for the still supported Pixel phones is here. That means for all devices from the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5a 5G to the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. However, the new firmware is still based on Android 13, so a recent rumor that the official stable release of Android 14 has been postponed until next month appears to be true after all.

It was originally said that the final version of Android 14 would be released in August. At least that’s what the timeline suggested. And Google showed it for months during beta testing of the upcoming operating system version. However, Android 14 Beta 4 in August was so faulty that Google had to push out several versions to fix the bugs. We are now in mid-September and are still waiting for the stable version. So maybe Google actually decided to postpone the event until early October and show the new operating system directly on the Pixel 8 series.

Today’s Google Pixel update appears on most devices with build number TQ3A.230901.001. However, some regional cell phone providers use variants that may contain different letters and numbers at the end of the build number. This update is not a feature drop, which arrives every three months with new functions. Instead, the focus is simply on fixing bugs and security issues.

As is usual with Google Pixel updates, it may take a few days or even weeks for all supported devices in circulation to show the update notification.
