It’s only been a few weeks Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices started reception Google’s March Pixel Drop with new features, improvements and fixesand now the company has started rolling out an April update (via 9to5Google).
According to Google, updates for wireless charging and camera fixes for the Pixel 6 series should improve performance with certain (unspecified) accessories and fix bugs that could zoom in on the front camera preview or show a green screen in the camera preview on certain apps.
Optimizations that apply to all phones receiving the update (from the Pixel 3a to all recently released devices) can fix issues with live wallpapers, crashes when using picture-in-picture, and an issue that darkens the notification shade could and quick settings. A accompanying security bulletin also describes several security vulnerabilities fixed by this latest update and for other Android devices with a security patch dated April 5th or later.
There’s no indication of a fix or change for Pixel 6 and 6 Pro owners who don’t appreciate it the weakened haptic vibration effect that arrived for many devices with the March update. Even as reports piled up on Reddit and its owner forum, Google hasn’t responded to my inquiries about this issue. But on March 25th review geek reported that it received a statement from Google stating, “This was an update intended to take advantage of the Pixel 6’s more advanced haptic capabilities, but we understand it may not be an optimal experience for all users.” We continually try to provide a better long-term solution in the future and plan to incorporate this feedback in an upcoming update.”

Whether you want to or not depends on your risk tolerance – The Android 12 update experience has been rocky so far.
