After missing the Monday release, thanks to the 4th of July weekend, Google has now released the July Android update for its Pixel phones. The new Pixel update – available to the Pixel 3 through Pixel 5 – includes the July security patch and should fix a number of bugs that we’ll detail below.

Currently, we are seeing new 11.0.0 files for Pixel 5 (RQ3A.210705.001), Pixel 4a 5G (RQ3A.210705.001), Pixel 4a (RQ3A.210705.001), Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL (RQ3A.210705.001), Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL (RQ3A.210705.001), and Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (RQ3A.210705.001).

Here are the notable fixes from Google:
