Google a short while ago begun rolling out the Android 13 stable update to eligible Pixel smartphones, but some obtained an Android 12 update. Google says it was not a error, and the Android 12 update was pushed intentionally.
Why did Pixel people receive the Android 12 update rather of Android 13
As per Google, the Android 12 update was pushed out to some Pixel people working an older Android 12 and it was not a miscalculation. It is just that the rollout coincided with the Android 13 release, and the notification misled people today into believing that the update was pushed mistakenly.
The statement received by Android Authority reads, “On August 15, Pixel gadgets functioning an aged version of Android 12 obtained a notification about a earlier introduced Android 12 update with bug fixes. The messaging in the notification was bewildering with the timing of Android 13, and is at this time becoming adjusted for clarity.”
The notification for the Android 12 update being pushed out go through, “Introducing Android 12,” which manufactured people feel that they are mistakenly receiving Android 12 rather than currently being up-to-date to Android 13. But that was not the circumstance. Google claims that it is modifying the notification to avoid any even further confusion.
In the coming days, you may well acquire an Android 12 update ahead of you get the Android 13 on your Pixel. So, you need to put in this update initial, right after which only you can update to Android 13. This update appears to be rolling out to mainly Pixel 6, 6 Professional and 6A even though some Pixel 4a and 5a may well also receive the update.
