Pixel 4a 5G update release already!

Looks like the Pixel 4a 5G will be getting quite a few software enhancements. I’m particularly excited about the “Adaptive Charging” and “Hold for Me” features. This is good stuff: https://support.google.com/pixelphone/thread/87395744

Edit: The improved GPS using 3D mapping is impressive too: https://9to5google.com/2020/12/07/pixel-5-gps-improved/


My phone is actually installing the December update as I type this. You can probably check to see if it is available to you now as well.


Yup! Just got it! They updated the screenshot speed too. It’s instant now (power+volume down).


Sweet! My last Google phone was the Nexus 6P. Moved to moto bc of price… But have been eyeing Pixels since the ‘a’ series started. Absolutely loving this phone’s balance of features and price and size… And can already tell that I’m going to love the update release speed!


I just tried the “Hold for Me” feature and it works well. My phone had an alarm go off when the agent finally answered my call. I have no clue what they heard on their end though. They seemed a little confused when I resumed the call.
