Google’s Pixel 6 doesn’t come with five years of Android updates — only three

For the first time ever, Google’s new phones are powered by a Google-designed chip, giving the company an Apple-like level of control over the inner workings of the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. But if you were hoping that meant they’d also get an Apple-like level of new OS updates, the company is throwing a bit of cold water on that. Google’s support page shows it’s only promising to offer Android updates through October 2024 (via Android Police), a total of three years after release.

A few recent leaks said the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro prices will be a lot better than expected. Both phones should be cheaper than the iPhone 13 models they’ll compete against. And now, a last-minute leak reveals the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will get a few fantastic launch deals.

All Facebook-owned apps were inaccessible for several hours due to configuration changes on October 4, prompting many users to switch to Telegram.

Secure Payment Confirmation, Eyedropper support, web app improvements, and more.
