Google Pixel April 2020 Update is Out! – What’s New?


hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and
today the Android April 2020 security update was released for all supported devices and so that includes the pixel 2 and newer so pixel 2, pixel 2XL, 3, 3XL,
3a, 3aXL, pixel 4, and pixel 4 XL and it may be available to other devices such
as Samsung devices some people were seeing it as early as late last week to
release to their device but that’s up to the manufacturers to release those so
you may see that within the coming weeks if you don’t already see it and now this
one is fairly large if you’re installing it directly onto the phone side loading
any of those things it’s going to be about 2 gigabytes if you’re installing
it over-the-air it’s going to be very small usually
under 50 gigabytes in some cases as little as 15 megabytes depending on your
device now this particular updates build number
is QQ2A.200405.005 and this particular update brings bug fixes
a lot of security updates and one major feature that we’ve wanted for the pixel
for and 4XL for quite some time and that has to do with the face unlock
now one of the major flaws of the pixel for and 4XL is you could unlock
the device using face unlock if your eyes are closed they’ve since fixed that
so if we go into our security settings and we’ll go down to security then we’ll
go into face unlock put in our pin we now have the option to require eyes to
be opened and always require confirmation so we now have this for
face unlock so if we turn on require eyes to be open it will not unlock
without your eyes open at that time so it definitely works I’ve tried it out so
if I go home I’ll lock it now if I bring it up and my eyes are closed it will not
unlock as soon as I open my eyes it looks and it will unlock so you feel it
jiggle in your hands when it’s locked so it works pretty well
now there are three fixes that apply to all supported devices and the first one
or the first to really have to do with bluetooth so the first thing is they fix
the memory leak which can prevent additional ble connections that’s fixed
on all pixel devices from the to newer they also have a fix for dropped
Bluetooth audio input in call in certain scenarios so if you
were having bluetooth issues with calls and call quality and things like that
expect that to be resolved now or hopefully it is for you and then finally
there’s a framework fix for occasional lag when opening the keyboard within
certain apps so if you’re using the Google keyboard maybe in a specific app
whatever that app might be it should be fixed so if we go in here and type
Google the keyboard should work fine not only in Google’s app but all third party
apps as well now that’s really it for any of the major features that’s not
very exciting it’s not a feature drop this month and that seems to make sense
with everything else going on but there are a lot of security patches so I’ll
link all of those in the description but let me run down how many there are
really quickly so first of all there are seven framework security patches two
media framework security patches four system security patches there are five
kernel component patches three FPC component patches 15 Qualcomm component
patches and 33 Qualcomm closed source security components so a lot of
different security patches in this particular update so that’s great news
for anyone using this they continue to update the security which is really nice
they do it on a monthly basis now everything else seems to be working well
no I was using this with Android 11 and batteries pretty much the same on all of
these versions right now and speed so far this has only been installed for a
little while so speed is pretty good in general it’s working well when it was
installing apps initially it did have a little hiccup but I think that’s because
I had to restore everything so all that data was restoring in the background but
in general everything’s nice and fast going into styles and wallpapers and
things like that so everything seems to be acting as you would expect and if you
have a pixel 4, 4XL or any of the older ones expect the performance to be
the same or better with those fixes to things like the keyboard in certain apps
now that’s it for this particular update it’s a pretty short one but let me know
if you’ve found anything else in the comments below if you’d like to get your
hands on this wallpaper of course I’ll link it in the description as I always
do and if you haven’t subscribed already please subscribe and if you enjoyed the
video please give it a like as always thanks for watching this is Aaron
I’ll see you next time

  1. Did you get the April 2020 Security patch yet and what device are you using? The April 2020 Android Security Patch for Pixel and more brings mostly security updates and a much needed face unlock update to Pixel 4 XL. Thanks for watching!

  2. I keep hoping one of these updates will fix Bluetooth connectivity issues I have between my Pixel 3A and my Google Home speakers. Casting works fine, but connecting and using it as a Bluetooth speaker ALWAYS disconnects after a minute or two…

  3. Great video ? Aaron. Stay safe and always enjoy your videos. Very attention to detail and technically sound. Take care.

  4. I know that this is not a video on Apple iPhones but can you PLEASE tell me what the iPhone 11 and XR will cost later this year (September). Will it be the same, will they even sell the XR. There are no other videos on this so please help me out.

  5. This update fixed my face Unlock before this update my face unlock would not unlock my phone no matter how many times i erased it. VERY HAPPY WITH THIS LOL

  6. Updates? great! But now I get that annoying X when starting YouTube video that I have to close out in order to see the videos without screen obstruction. Ugh!!

  7. After updating my pixel 4xl scored several hundred points more on geekbench 4 and 5. No biggie but noticed my score was higher by several hundred than ever in the past.

  8. This update appears on my Xiaomi A2 Lite with file size of 1.0GB but when I install it it says error and wait for the official update? Weird.

  9. I never understood why you need eyes open as an issue. So finger print while sleeping?? And it has lockdown button.

  10. I like Android updates. Always smooth and bug free, unlike Apple as every time they update something, they break up something else. I use both Android and iOS devices.

  11. ? wondering why I did the update and I don't see the face recognition on my pixel 3. Awesome video thank you!!❤️

  12. It still works if I lift up one eye so an evil chic could still get your phone unlocked. ????

  13. 03:14 Yeah, but that also means that we had about 70 vulnerabilities that hackers could have (or may have?) used to exploit the phone up until last week. Why were there so many vulnerabilities in the first place?

  14. they are showing the smell/taste of the update by releasing smaller size updates for older devices.
    as pixel 2 owner i am expecting good battery consumption in future updates

  15. Lmao, Android is becoming more like iOS and iOS is becoming like Android, I see this as an absolute win-win situation even though they are copying each other, at the end it's a profit for us!

  16. Since i start using the S20 ultra , is hard for me not to notice how bad that forehead is.
    Great device tho! but terrible design

  17. I just got a new pixel 4 and the battery is… Well it isn't great. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do to help improve this?

  18. I have a pixel 2 xl and when i check for an update it shows system is upto date its still on the march 2020 security patch how come that is possible

  19. They still didn't fix the messed up camera they created on the last update . Pixel 2 xl here and still can't use either front or rear camera.

  20. Maybe this will fix the random reboot issue that started after the March update. My 3 month old Pixel 4 is pretty much useless at this point. It still works, but is very unreliable.
