  • Pixel Phone’s Faster Seamless Updates with Android 14 QPR2 Beta 1

    Pixel phone’s seamless updates are now faster with the Android 14 QPR2 Beta 1 update. A seamless update is a Pixel-exclusive method that lets you keep using your phone while it installs the update.

    How Seamless Updates Work

    Google’s Pixel phones have two system partitions that allow seamless updates to be installed on the inactive partition. After the new software is installed, the phone reboots and transitions to the updated partition.

    Improved Speed of Seamless Updates

    Recent user feedback suggests that Google has worked to enhance the speed of seamless updates. Previously, updates could take up to 30 minutes, but now users have reported installation times as short as 10 minutes, with the “optimizing” step taking only 2.5 minutes. This aligns with Google’s efforts to reduce rebooting time.
