Users of Pixel phones in India have finally started getting the latest Android 11 update. This comes more than a week after Google launched the final build of Android 11. It immediately started rolling out for select Pixel, OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Realme phones, but Pixel users in India had to wait.
According to the tipster, the update weighed 1.72 GB on their Pixel 4 XL smartphone. And now, Android 11 is available for all eligible Pixel handset users. The report added that while earlier, their secondary Jio eSIM was only able to provide mobile data, it can now make calls and send SMS messages.
Also, interestingly all the users who had the beta version of Android 11 running on their devices got a stable build from day one.
Google has since then also updated the OTA rollout page for developers that previously read: “All carriers except IN,” making the update rollout official. Several Reddit and Twitter users also confirmed that they had started receiving the OTA.
But what had caused the delay? Google says the delay was to ensure that the update was compatible with India’s “ecosystem requirements.”
