A part of my brain had talked me into believing that Google might release Android 14 today in stable form instead of the August Pixel update (still Android 13), but they did not. We did indeed just get the Android security update for August and all of Google’s Pixel devices, which you can grab shortly if not right away.

We may get Android 14 later this month, but for now, go ahead and prepare your Pixel 4a up through the Pixel 7 Pro, Pixel 7a, Pixel Fold, and Pixel Tablet for an update. There’s a good chance that the Pixel Watch will get its August update as well. The over-the-air pull of these updates should begin shortly, plus there are images you can flash to get them even quicker, if that’s your thing.

For those curious, here are the rest of the details for the Pixel August update. Rollout begins today.
