Google reportedly pulls the March security update for Pixel 4 users on AT&T

Google began rolling out its monthly Android security patch for March to Pixel devices starting yesterday, along with the feature drop that brought with it many new capabilities such as new Motion Sense features, new emojis, the ability to pin apps to the share menu, and more for the Pixel 4 line of phones. However, it looks like the security update for Pixel 4 devices on AT&T has been pulled (spotted by 9to5Google).

Interestingly, the page that hosts the OTA updates for the March security update contained specific builds for all but AT&T devices. This could possibly be due to user reports on Reddit that suggested that they were unable to use Google Pay after installing this month’s security updates. The reason for the lack of the download links or the rollback of the OTA could be because Google “forgot” to certify the AT&T builds, as per the Reddit thread. However, there is no official comment from the search giant.

The March security update has been somewhat troublesome for Pixel users, as Pixel 2 users reportedly lost the Live Translation feature that they had received with the January update. The company responded to a user question on Twitter confirming that the feature was slated to roll out to those devices starting March 12, suggesting that the transcribe feature was prematurely made available to users of the Pixel 2.
