What you need to know

  • Google rolled out its April 2024 security update starting on April 2, following the release of the Pixel Watch’s April 2024 update.
  • The update includes 28 general security patches for Android and another 25 that are exclusively for Pixel devices. Google believes two vulnerabilities are actively being exploited. 
  • There are also bug fixes related to the Pixel Camera app and biometrics included in the April 2024 update. 

Google announced that the April 2024 security update is rolling out as of April 2 in a Pixel community post, so you might start seeing it now on your Pixel device. Other Android phone makers, such as Samsung, released their monthly security patches as early as last week. The April 2024 update for Pixel phones came just after the update for Pixel Watches was released earlier on Tuesday.
