Here we are again, expecting another smallish Google Pixel monthly update before we get to a larger quarterly build. The February 2024 Pixel update landed today for every still-supported Pixel, from the Pixel 5a up through the Pixel Fold and Pixel 8 Series. It’s time to get to updating.

Like the January update, big changes shouldn’t be buried within this February build for Pixels. We got a big quarterly update (QPR1) in December and have been testing the big March update since then. So again, this February update should help us prepare for next month, when we should also get another Pixel Feature Drop. Although, we did get a surprise January Pixel Feature Drop just a week or so ago, but it’s tough to truly count that one.

All that said, if we find new stuff, we’ll be sure to update this post. Below are the builds to find for your specific device.
