Verizon pushes Android March security update to Google Pixel and Pixel XL

When Google announced its Pixel and Pixel XL flagship phones in October, some concerns were raised regarding Verizon's control over software updates for the two devices - but the carrier quickly laid those fears to rest, promising to make updates available "at the same time" as they're released to those devices sold by Google itself.

True to its word, Verizon has wasted no time in rolling out the latest monthly Android security update, which Google released yesterday. Full details of the March security patches can be found here.

The update will bump up the software version to build NOF27B, and along with the security patches for March 5, 2017, Verizon's update also includes a fix promising "increased reliability of sending and receiving calls with the Honda Bluetooth Carkit".

In addition to its over-the-air rollout of the March security update, Google also released new factory and OTA images for supported Pixel and Nexus devices on its site.
