The first generation Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL are one of the earliest Android Pie adopters. The update hit both the smartphones while Google was testing it in the beta phases. Back in August when Google released beta versions of Android Pie for these two smartphones, both of them lost their fast charging capabilities. Google didn’t fix this issue even after the first stable update.
Besides, the owners of the first generation Pixels can now fast charge their smartphones with a new update. Now, Google says the problem is fixed with the October security update.
This latest update patches the problems with the communication between third-party USB-PD adapters, and the phone. The update arrives for the Pixel 2XL as well, and it fixes the Android Auto stability. This new update also improves the performance for certain protected media formats on both these devices.
The update is rolling out over-the-air. And, if you are a Pixel owner, the update will hit your smartphone very soon.
