This is NOT true for the Pixel Ann154. ALL other updates since the Pixel was released last year have come to all users, including Verizon at the same time. This was PROMISED by Verizon that they would not sit on updates and we would all get them at the same time. Every month like clockwork we all got the updates simultaneously, until now.
I'm sorry, this is not true. Google does NOT send out their updates to ALL devices simultaneously. Google sends out the updates in batches over a period of 1-2 weeks.
Still disagree. Of course for major system updates such as rolling out a new version of the OS such as Nougat, they do soak tests and roll out in stages. Not for the monthly security updates. They are available to everyone at once. Until this last one, whenever Google said the monthly security update was released you could manually pull it down on your device at that time.
The reason this one was delayed 3 days or so for Verizon users is that they did add something other Pixel users didn't get. This is from Android Authority and outlines the additional items for Verizon users.... "The support pages for Verizon’s Pixel and Pixel XL both show the same change log. It reveals the update includes a new feature for people to back up and restore first-party Google apps such as Calendar, Drive and Messenger. The update also includes some improvements in voice call performance, the latest Android security patches, and improvements for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi performance and connectivity."
To say that the monthly security updates roll out in stages and it could take several weeks for them to reach your device is simply being misinformed, and what we now call an alt-fact. The monthly updates always come out during the first few days of the month. If it took weeks to get them, there is the possibility you would get the next month's prior to getting the month before. Just doesn't make sense.
Still waiting for it to reach my phone. I bought my phone from Verizon. Every update prior to this one was within a couple of days of release. It has now been 2 weeks. I check almost every day. Have cleared the cache. Still nothing.
Anyone know what is going on?
